Small winery on the Negrar hills (east side)The visit was very pleasant both for the excellent welcome from the very kind and well-trained staff of the cellar itself, and for what concerns the great quality of the wines offered for tasting, with the addition of a few small extras not agreed upon during the reservation.I would have expected a slightly lower price when purchasing the wines directly on site, but the same price can also be found on some specialized sites.Regardless, it's an excellent five-star experience!If you're in the area it's worth dropping by.

I can only leave 5 stars for our experience at Agricola Franchini.Very warm welcome, visit of the very beautiful vineyard and cellar and always accompanied by the precious explanations of Sonia, who was very kind right from the start (she also made sure that our dog had water, it may seem like a small gesture, but it does not it's for everyone).The tasting was just as wonderful, tasting great wines and understanding more what lies behind the philosophy of this small winery.We will long remember this wonderful location in the heart of Valpolicella, but above all the people who welcomed us with so much genuineness and passion for what they do.Until next time!

I visited this beautiful place with my sister and my dog. The welcome was wonderful from the first moment. Sonia guided us and a couple to visit the vineyards and the cellar. We then tasted 6 wines. What can I say, one wine better than the other, accompanied by a lot of passion and explanations that have made an already perfect setting even more unique. Thanks for the hospitality, it is rare to find people so sincere and happy to convey their passion. Stunning location, wine that left us speechless! We can't wait to go back. Warm greetings from Switzerland 😊

As a tour guide I have stopped by Franchini a certain number of times and every time I feel better. The location is phenomenal and has an incredible historical value. The girls who explain are all great, I won't mention names so as not to annoy anyone but I assure you that whoever you are with will find competence, professionalism and sympathy. But can we talk about wine? Their IGT is already a top wine and both the 2015 and 2016 Amarone deserve more than a tasting. I can not wait to come back .

This was such an amazing experience - Sonia was amazing in explaining the family tradition surrounding the wine and then had us feel like we were actually sitting at someone's table at home while tasting their amazing Amarone Riserva wines!And to add to this, the wine is simply amazing ❤️

Franchini combines tradition and modern in a great way so that no matter which bottle you choose from they all are magnificent. Definitely start with the classic valpolicella red as it already is amazing and a little lighter on alcohol - perfect for a aperitif during warm weather. The amarone riserva is very limited and a must - vintage 2013 stood out for us! Make sure you do the cellar tour with lovely family staff!! a must go hidden diamond in the village of Negrar

What a fantastic visit. The place is amazing, the staff super friendly and th3 wine is delicious.We learnt loads about the area, the place and the wine from our host. The local cheese and meats were definitely worth the extra 5 euros.We were sad to leave, but took a takeaway:)
