You can't go wrong with a brunello wine tasting, but the tour guide from Daniel, was AMAZING. He really knew how to cater to his audience and was so knowledgable. Highly recommended.
This tour was the highlight of our entire trip to Italy. It is so hard to believe how much we crammed in to one day. Starting with a morning in scenic Siena, we met our wonderful guide and wine expert who took us to three Montalcino wineries, each with its own distinct character. We had the best meal of our trip, home cooked by one of the winery owners. But I'm not even done. We ALSO visited an 800 year old church and saw monks chanting, and visited the castle at the top of Montalcino. Oh, and of course the wine was incredible. We were a little hesitant to book this tour because of the cost, but it was money very well spent.
Our tour guide was a blast and told us so much history about the area. All 3 wineries were wonderful along with lunch. Great way to spend the day in Siena and relax!!!
Milo was our guide. He was fun and knowledgeable. We really enjoyed our time on this tour.
Nice respite from the crowds in Florence. The two towns are great, and we were able to tailor our time there to suit the varied desires of the 8 people in our group. Bad rain hampered or time at the Choant winery, and I would have liked a more educational experience there. But very nice.
This was an amazing tour! I learnt so much about wine and the wine making process this day. We tasted so many great wines and met some fantastically engaging and charismatic winemakers. We had a really delicious lunch and there was plenty of food. Milo was our guide and he was brilliant. He knew so much about wine that he really filled in any gaps we had after talking to the winemakers. I thoroughly recommend this tour.
My wife and our friends loved this tour. Our guide was informative and passionate about wine making
in the region and explained the process in great detail. We would recommend this tour to all.
Daniele could not have been a better guide not to mention provided endless information about the production of wine. I highly recommend this tour.
Loved the intimacy of a small tour. Countryside was beautiful, wines delicious, guide good. A great day!
Great tour, all 3 wineries were very informative and beautiful.
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.
our tour was small and personal and the vineyards we visited were amazing.
Learnt alot and tasted great wines!
will definitely do again
This trip was amazing- really interesting and informative. Our guide, Daniele, had a vast knowledge of wine making and the area which he shared with us in friendly, enthusiastic manner.
The typical Italian lunch at the second vineyard was superb and owners at all three vineyards were warm and welcoming. It was wonderful to meet people who are so passionate about their work.
I definitely give this trip 5 stars and recommend it to anyone interested in wine.
Visiting Siena was the highlight of my trip to Italy. It was so neat to learn about the city and its traditions. San Gimignano was very cool to see too. I will forewarn you that the ride in the van is bumpy, especially if you ride in the back.
