On our 1st trip to Italy and into the wine country of Tuscany, we opted for private, small group tour through the regions of Montalcino and Montepulciano. Best known for they're extraordinary Brunello's and Montepulciano's. We were not disappointed with any aspect of the tour except: if it was my TOUR, I'd do it in reverse so that the first winery / vineyard we visited "CapAnna" a fourth generation, small batch Classic Brunello maker, would be last on the list. Never start at the top handiwork down. The other wines were good and the grounds of each beautiful, but, disappointing after tasting such wonderful wines at CapAnna. Could have stayed there the entire time. Luigi, our driver was amazing. He really knew his way around the region having grown up there. We encountered a bottleneck on a narrow road from an accident. He turned us around, took a few back streets and before we knew it we were back on the freeway heading towards our destination. Grazie Luigi. If you're looking for an adventure through breathtaking wine country, this could be just the ticket. Ciao!
We had such an amazing time on our wine tour throughout Tuscany! Niccolo was an awesome guide that took us to four fabulous wineries in Montelcino as well as Montepluciano. The drive to and from Siena was beautiful and comfortable. It was an amazing day and we highly recommend this tour!
