Great tour, great wine, great guide.
We had a marvelous time with our guide, Daniele, and the rest of the folks on our bus. We were comfortably driven around much of the Chianti region visiting the Ricosoli Estate and enjoyed a wonderful lunch and tasting at the Montechiaro estate.
Do yourself a favor and take this tour when you're in Tuscany. It may very well have been the highlight of our entire Italian two week holiday!
Wonderful tour. Our guide Daniele was very knowledgable and patient. The farms we visited were beautiful and of course the wine was outstanding! With only 4 people on the tour it was relaxing and a lot of fun!
Absolutely excellent. Milo was a great tour leader. The wineries we visited were great. I would highly recommend the tour.
It was a great day! Beautiful weather. A small group of 3 of us. Driver was great! The learning about wine was fascinating. Highly recommend this tour!
My husband and I totally lucked out with this tour as we were the only 2 people, so we had our own private driver, Milo, for the entire day!Even had that not been the case, the tour was fabulous!! Milo was an excellent guide-very pleasant and knowledgable about wine, the regional geography, flora and fauna and history. As you would imagine, the Chianti region is beautiful (and the wine isn't bad either!). We had three tastings, one large (where we ran into an American expat who grew up around the corner from where we live!) and two which were with small wineries where we met and were able to chat personally with the winemakers. Lunch at one of their homes, in the garden (with the family and some buyers from the Netherlands was absolutely fantastic-FRESH pesto pasta made by Nona and cherries right from the tree!). It is no surprise that we shipped a case of wine back to the states (along with some olive oil and vinegar)! We HIGHLY recommend this tour!
Fantastic Excursion! Our tour guide Milo was extremely knowledgeable and made the day truly enjoyable. Yes, you see a castle and tour one, but the wine tasting experience really made it. At one winery the 5th generation owner and winemaker toured us around and then sat with us and talked about wine for an hour as he poured us several healthy tastes of his work.
Great guided tour. Enjoyed meeting the winemakers at the first two wineries and touring the castle at the last winery. Would recommend to others.
