The pretty Tuscan hill town of Montalcino is about 25 miles southeast of Siena, and perhaps best known for its exceptional Brunello di Montalcino wine. The founding of Montalcino is closely associated with the nearby Abbey of Sant'Antimo – ...

While I had to admit that I'm not a big fan of wine, this tour completely exceeded my expectation. Daniel took us to places and wineries that we could've never known and found on our own. We visited three vineries and enjoyed them all. Montalcino might not be the biggest tourist destination but it was still a beautiful place.

Of my Family's two weeks in Italy, this tour was the highlight of the trip. It was unanimously the best experience all 8 of us had. Even if you are not into wine, it is great tour. If you enjoy wine, then this is a must. The three vineyards (Piombaia, Molino di Sant' Antimo, and Il Paradiso di Frassina) were great, and all showcased differences in winemaking technique and philosophy. The Lunch we ate in one of the winemaker's homes was cooked by the wife of the vineyard owner, and was the best meal of our trip. We also enjoyed time in Montalcino, and a small church nearby. Milo, the tour guide did an amazing job and kept us informed with information about Siena, Montalcino, the local wines, and customs. This is a must see for wine lovers, or those who simply want to get a closer look at a more personal side of Tuscany. Set aside some extra money for purchasing some wines, you will definitely want to take some with you.

Such a fantastic afternoon!! Our guide, Marianna was wonderful - and Brunello Wine Tasting was just fantastic! Beautiful setting; a lovely hospitable and fun host in Paulo, whose English was wonderful; and with a setting to die for........The abbey at Sant'Antimo was just beautiful in fabulous surroundings; and Montalcino picture postcard! The only negative for me would be that half an hour isn't really enough time to visit Montalcino........but all in all a hugely enjoyable afternoon; where we met some wonderful people, who will surely remain friends!! x

The tour started in Sienna, which gave us the chance to explore the city, which was absolutely wonderful. Our guide picked us up. He was a wonderful man, who knew a lot about the region and shared lots of stories about Sienna and Florence history. We stopped along the way and had lots of photo opportunities. After some driving we got to Abbadia Ardegna, the winery where we walked around the factory and some vineyards. The absolute highlight was the owner of the winery, Mr. Mario. A vivacious and passionate about wine, 80 something year old man who has been working there for the majority of his life. He only speaks Italian, but whether you understand the language or not, you can still understand his passion for his winery and his Brunello de Montalcino wines! Otherwise the guide translates everything perfectly well into English. We tried several wines, which were delicious! After the wine tasting we drove on to Sant'Antimo which is a beautiful abbey. The architecture is sobre and gives space to reflect. On the ride back to Sienna all of us fell asleep in the car. I guess the wine tasting did it's work properly!

Thanks for a very wonderful and unforgettable day! The price and quality are a definite 5 star for us!

A very nice afternoon! Really wanted to get to the Abbazia di Sant'Antimo, but Montalcino is also a favorite of mine. Despite a rainy day, I really enjoyed this tour. Only suggestion is a little more time in Montalcino.
