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.
Great tour through the countryside with a sweet, knowledgable guide and some excellent and different wineries. We were only 6 people in the bus our guide, and it felt like a very exclusive experience. Even though the price was very fair.
Also, the light lunch was anything but light. A very positive surprise.
Fantastic. Handsome, affable tour guide gave us lots of education, information and entertainment. The best and worth every penny! What a day--family bonding was great and he managed to give everyone personal attention --the meal at the home was delightful!!! Thanks for making Siena and surrounds one of our favorite memories-You Rock!
Loved the tour! Guide was great - gave a lot of information. We liked the small group - we got to meet some new friends! We would recommend it to a friend.
The tour in Montalcino and the opportunity to taste various wines was amazing. The tour is very organized and our tour guide Elena was great. She is very knowledge about wine and the Tuscany region. The overall tour was outstanding and we highly recommend it.
The winery visits were very welcoming. We felt that the owners and staff went above and beyond to host the guest. So if youre a Brunello wine lover, this tour is a must! Hope you all enjoy it like we did. Cheers!
Our group of 4 2 mid-lifers and 2 young 20s loved this trip. We visited wineries with interesting business models and tasted a variety of wines. Our guide was attentive to people's needs and added to the enjoyment of the trip with his knowledge of wine, the wineries and Tuscany. Overall the pace was good except we would have preferred a little less time at lunch for a little more time in Montalcino or just ending a little earlier. We highly recommend this tour for casual wine enthusiasts who want to taste several wines and take in some of the Tuscan countryside.
Excellent adventure, guide Dannelle was very knowledgeable about the region and the wineries we visited. Lunch at the farmhouse was delicious. I highly recommend this tour!!
