Manfredo di San Bonifacio

Conte Manfredo di San BonifacioThe perfect host, once described as “impossibly handsome” is often at the Wine Resort talking with guests and working hard behind the scenes. As Owner and Director of the Hotel and Winery he oversees all elements of both the Hospitality and the Wine business. It was his vision that convinced his wife, Sarah, to come to Italy and invest in this part of Tuscany. Wine must run in his aristocratic veins as he shares his passion with his guests and friends that join him at the Hotel. “It’s about immersing our guests in the Wine Estate, the vineyard and what it means to be a Winemaker. Its not just about the glass you drink with your dinner, but about the fascinating journey form our red Tuscan soil to the bottle.” He leads by example and teaches his staff how he wants his guests to be treated when they visit us. He believes everything is possible for a Conti di San Bonifacio guest. The service must be personal and intimate from the second you make your booking. When asked how he deals with problem resolution, he responds, “I can’t please all of the people all of the time but I will learn from my mistakes and make this the best Wine Resort experience for our guests Tuscany can offer.” Watch this space as he has many future plans to bring the best of Italy to his guests in other locations.
