Why is there another location tagged as Terra di seta?
They may have corrected the marker already, but when I tried to find the place & failed they told me too look out for the sign to Le Macie

Edited my post above.

Email they sent me when I reserved:

the tour includes a short walk to see the vineyard, the cellar visit and the kosher products tasting (dairy), usually it needs 1-1, 5 hours.. You could find more info, and costs of the wine tour in our web site.
About the light lunch, it is a Kosher ďCapreseĒ Tomato and Mozzarella with our extra virgin Organic Olive Oil and Tomatoes. It costs 15 Euro each.
To find us you can write on Waze or Google -Terra di Seta- but please notify us if you cannot come. Regards, Maria

The cheese was cholov yisrael, bread was pas palter I think. This was 2 years ago though.

Looks like that's a drive of more than an hour.  Check the map.

I wouldn't do it. You're going to be in a foreign country where you don't speak the language and know the roads well (despite GPS). I'd allow more time.

Good point. I'll leave day before and take food to go.

Also, thanks for the microagressive assumption that as an American jew I don't speak Italian!

No worries. I'd be happy to be wrong. In fact my minimal Italian came in quite handy when we got lost in Tuscany when my GPS couldn't get a signal on my phone.

In the 1950's an Italian Lubavitcher bochur came into NY.  One day, as he got out of the subway, he didn't know which way to go, but he saw a little old lady dressed in black that reminded him of the ladies in Italy.  So he approached her and asked directions in Italian.  After nearly having a heart attack, she answered him similarly.  ;D

Ok I have not been following the conversation well. #Guilty

Pro-tip: R' Eidlitz from KosherQuest said I can rely on Chabad of Milan to give me opinions on the other Rabbanim of Italy. Now that you have specific names, why not contact them to ask if these Rabbis are reliable?
How'you get in touch with chabad? I emailed but got no answer

Would think just by foot, but see above its been discussed about things that are little outside the city and you might want a car for. If your going for only a day....
