Amazing. Do this. I don't even like wine but this was awesome. Amazing and knowledgable guide. Do it!
We visited two wineries. The countryside was beautiful. The tour guide was fun and informative. The group was small and the pace was perfect. The lunch and the wine were a wonderful experience.
Excellent tour. The guides were very knowlegeable and informative and looked after the group in a freindly and warm fashion. Both wineries were excelent as was the lunch. Would definitely go on this tour again
Amazing experience! Beautiful countryside! Awesome Vineyards! Best Guide/Wine Sommelier - Matteo! Very very romantic wine tasting lunch :D
Highly recommended for a honeymoon trip :D
Great tour and great people in the small group. We toured 2 wineries with a traditional Tuscan lunch (lots of breads, cheese, meats, pasta) at the end of the first winery. Lunch included a tasting of several wines, but our tour guides kept reminding us to not drink them all to save room for the next place. We then went to a 2nd winery place and learned more about the wines and about olive oils. The tasting there included 3 wines and 3 cheeses. We learned a lot about wines from the region and had plenty of time to interact with others in the group.
My husband and I loved this tour! We happened to be the only persons on the tour, so we had the tour guides all to ourselves. Our primary guide, Matteo, was training a colleague, Gianluca, on how to give the tour. Both of them were funny, polite, knowledgeable about history and wine – just overall really good people to take this trip with. I unfortunately wasn’t feeling well and couldn’t take advantage of the delicious wine and food, though I tasted it and could appreciate the high quality of everything they put out for us. My husband, however, thoroughly enjoyed the meats, cheeses, olive oils, etc., as well as the various wines served. The vineyards are gorgeous and the people there (including the owner at the first vineyard!) were incredibly gracious.
But, really, I can’t overstate how lovely Matteo was in his role as driver and sommelier. And easy on the eyes too! :-)
Definitely recommended for couples and groups of friends. I think it'd even be fun as a party of one. :-)
It was a great addition to my time in Florence. It was highly informative, entertaining and delicious. I would recommend this to everyone, regardless of their experience and knowledge of wine and wine making.
Our guide , Mateo was adorable . He was on time, and you could just hear in his voice that he was proud to show off his Italy. The wine was delicious and the food was very tasty and filling. The whole experience was delightful and I can"t wait to go again.
Amazing!!! We loved every minute of it and our guide Matteo was great as well!!! We will definitely recommend this tour to everyone traveling to Florence! Thank y'all so much! It was the highlight of our 2 week Europe trip!

Our tour was perfect! Matteo was a knowledgeable guide, the wineries were beautiful, and the tour extremely informative! The lunch, wine, cheese, honey and olive oils we sampled were wonderful! We have returned home with a new perspective and appreciation of the wines we consume!
Incredible winetasting tour! Amazing sites, fabulous wine, food, olive oil, good company. Couldn't ask for more!! Our guide Mateo was awesome!! He taught us so much about the wine making process and was extremely passionate and knowledgeable about the Tuscany region. Highlight of our Italy trip!
Lovely tour comprising of a small group of 7 which kept it personable . The tour guide Matteous was very knowledgeable and pleasant . Enjoyed the content , wine and food ..
A really fantastic tour..we enjoyed everything about the trip. The sommelier was awesome.
Amazing tour! Mateo was wonderful and full of information. The two wineries we visited were beautiful and had great wines and olive oils. The wineries were gorgeous and we were able to get some amazing pictures. Highly recommend!!!!!
We both enjoyed this trip very much. We were part of a group of 8. The guide was friendly and very knowledgeable. The 2 wineries we visited were both excellent and we had a good look round both premise and most importantly tasted some lovely wine, accompanied by some great food. Highly recommended.
A wonderful tour to an equally as wonderful and beautiful area. Our guide was very knowledgable, friendly and enjoyable to interact with. I would recommend this tour!
Our tour was excellent! Tour guide was friendly, knowledgeable and entertaining! The ride was picturesque and enjoying! Food and wine was excellent. Really really enjoyed our time in Florence and this was definitely our highlight!!
The small group wine tour was a great experience. Our guide, Matteo, was very knowledgeable about the wineries and was able to take us around behind the scenes to see how the wine is made. The lunch was amazing - delicious foods pared with top quality wines. My wife and I have been on many wine tours before, in many countries, but this was by far the best one.
Tour was set up well and agreed upon meeting place easy to find.
Our guide was very intereresting and did a great job. We visited two Castles and both had very good wines for us to taste.
Mateo, was our driver, guide and sommelier. His knowledge of the area, the wine industry, and wine in general was superb and made for a fantastic experience. The weather was gorgeous, the Tuscan countryside more beautiful than pictures or paintings can convey, and the wines (varieties of Chianti) were excellent. Our lunch at Castello Sonnino (the first winery) was wonderful, one of our best meals we had during our trip. The small group, (seven of us excluding Mateo) was just the right size for this kind of experience. My recommendation? TAKE THIS TOUR! You will not regret it.
I was rather suprised. My wife and I had done countless wine tours in napa/sonoma area. We have always learned new information but this tour was above and beyond. Only bummer was we thought we were spending time in a small town, and other guests were late which delayed us. The tour guide "Matel (sp probably)" was outstanding. He had a wealth of information, very personable, English was great, funny and outgoing. Even considering regular tours and not just wine he was one of the best ever. You definitely have a star and should keep him. Again, thanks for a wonderful time, tour, and experience.
