What You Can Expect
Next, arrive in Montalcino, the hilltop town that gives its name to the region and its wines. Here, you'll have the opportunity to walk around the walls of the fortress where brave soldiers of the Republic of Siena made their last stand to Florence during battles in medieval times. Explore this captivating town independently and visit the town’s stores, taste the famous Brunello wines, or simply enjoy the incredible views overlooking the valley below.
After your visit to Montalcino, continue your drive to a family-run winery, where you’ll be introduced to the owners and winemakers themselves. Visit the farm before sitting down to enjoy a traditional Tuscan meal (included) accompanied by delicious wines produced in this region.
After lunch, consisting of antipasti, pasta or risotto, desert, coffee and wine tastings, visit the stunning, ancient Benedictine abbey of Sant'Antimo, a special place radiating tranquility, set in a fabulous landscape. With your expert guide, explore the inside of the abbey and learn about its fascinating history. You may get the chance to witness the monks singing Gregorian chants as you enjoy the serene natural surroundings.
In the afternoon, head to a third winery, where you'll get a detailed explanation of the wine-making processes, learn about the tools used, discover how the vines are cared for, and learn about the long aging process in oak barrels that gives these wines their distinctive flavor. After visiting the cellars and getting to know the winemakers you can sit down for a last tasting of this 'Nectar of the Gods', before enjoying a relaxing ride back to Siena.
Found the entire trip great.
This tour was perfect. Our tour guide Milo was highly knowledgeable about both the area and wine. The wineries that we visited were small and not the large brands that are imported into the US. Two years ago we had toured Tuscany by driving a rented car this was so much more relaxing and enjoyable. We never would have known about these smaller wineries, nor would we have likely been able to find them driving on our own. Talking to the people who actually make the wine was fascinating and lunch was personable and delicious. Oh...and the wine was spectacular!.
Best day in Italy! Try it youll like it.
This tour was the best day of our trip! Our tour guides were so nice and extremely knowledgable. The group was small and personal. The wineries were amazing! Everything was perfect. I would definitely recommend this to everyone!
Fantastic tour - Milo was a wonderful guide and provided a lot of great history and information about the region in addition to information about the wine. The timing of the tour was great as was the lunch provided and, of course, the wine! One of the highlights of our whole trip.
We had a wonderful time. Our guide was awesome!!
The tour was fantastic! Our guides were charismatic and the Vineyard owners were very welcoming. The tour was intimate there were only eight people. We learned a lot about wine and Italian culture. We highly recommend this to anyone. Well worth the money. Our favorite experience on our six week vacation in Italy.
This tour exceeded our expectations. Our guide Milo was so knowledgeable, friendly and thoughtful. He explained the history of Brunello wine, how to taste and savor wine. His English was excellent. Each of the three vineyards we visited was a gem. Lunch was a real treat and the wines were superb.
Our tour was the highlight of our 15 day trip to Italy. Danny was our tour guide and he was very knowledgeable and designed the tour perfectly. I highly recommend him and this tour!
This was a fantastic tour. I ended up buying 14 bottles of wine...12 to ship home. Mozart vineyard is not to be missed. Grazie Daniele!
