Wine Tasting from Siena

For many visitors to Tuscany, Siena is a day trip in and of itself from nearby Florence. This gorgeous historic city makes a great home base of its own, however, especially if you want to explore the Tuscan wine region more fully.

Siena sits in the middle of a few wine producing areas of Tuscany, including the famous vineyards of Chianti, Montalcino, and Montepulciano. Italian wineries are notoriously more difficult to visit without an appointment or a guided tour than wineries in some other countries, and even in these famous wine-producing regions the vineyards are well away from the so-called “beaten path.” They are, in other words, harder to reach without a car.

Your best bet if you want to check out the vineyards and wineries around Siena — and you don’t want to worry about navigating your own car or driving after you’ve sampled the local vino — is to sign up for a guided wine tasting tour from Siena. There are tours that go north into Chianti, and others that go south into Montalcino or Montepulciano.

On a Chianti tour from Siena, you’ll visit two castles, including one considered to be the birthplace of Chianti wine,  where you’ll sample the famous wine in dramatic surroundings. On a Montalcino tour, you’ll sample the famous Brunello di Montalcino wine after seeing how it’s made at three different wineries, and enjoy a traditional Tuscan lunch. With a guided tour, you’ll be able to indulge to your heart’s content without worrying about finding your way back to Siena on those winding Tuscan back roads at the end of the day.
