Brunello di Montalcino Wine Tour of 3 Wineries with Pairing Lunch
From $258.41 (Price varies by group size )
, Nov 2019
Solaria was nice. Costello Tricherce was OUTSTANDING. Underground at Montepouliciano was ok. It was cold downstairs. It was supposed to be a pairing lunch and it was not. It was barely even a lunch. Our driver was fantastic. The driver and Tricherce keep this at 4 because they were outstanding.
I booked this tour based on the reviews I'd read here, expecting a personalized, custom feeling experience. I expected wineries that I couldn't otherwise find, an engaged tour guide, and a generally great day.
While the tour technically included all the pieces in the listing, it didn't quite live up to expectations. Our drive was 30 min late to pick us up, with no notice. This plus an accident meant that we missed the tour of our first winery completely. The wines themselves were lovely. Stop two was great - much smaller, friendly guide, good wine. But our third winery felt like a giant tourist trap. The winery guide was disinterested, reciting lines, and only engaging with us to rattle off a description before pouring the next taste. The wines themselves were fine, but nothing great - and definitely nothing that felt like the capstone for the tour.
Our driver didn't speak much English. He was friendly, but spent most of the day completely silent, or on the phone. I hoped for more local information (per reviews here), but that just wasn't the case for us. As the last drop off, we got back to our hotel around 19:-0-... giving us an exhausting 10.5hr day that just didn't quite meet what the prior reviews set me to expect.

Visit historic wine cellars and vineyards, have lunch in a winery in the hill town of Montalcino itself, and visit a winery in the nearby Nobile di Montepulciano area for good measure.
Our family (2 adults and 11 year old daughter) loved this tour. Phillipo, our guide/driver was excellent - friendly, good humoured and full of interesting information about the region, history, food and wine. Sylvia, our chef/instructor was wonderful. After preparing the food, we were able to tour the farm/vineyard before sitting down to a wonderful meal. We all thoroughly enjoyed the day, especially my daughter. It was one of the highlights our our trip to Italy. I would definitely recommend the tour.
We had such a good time, lots of laughter and fun with our host Paolo who was very knowledgeable on food and wine and made the day one to remember. Would recommend this tour to anyone who loves food and wine.
