Our tour of Montalcino and the surrounding countryside was lovely. I very my enjoyed the wineries that our guide took us to and the lunch that we had. Our group consisted of 4 people so it really gave us some freedom to stop and take pictures periodically.

We had a great experience during this wine tour! The wineries were each unique, especially enjoyed the second stop at the smaller family owned winery. The people, the views, the food and definitely the wine, were all superb. Would recommend this tour to others.

Amazing tour - as a family that knows about and enjoys wine, this trip was really excellent - especially loved the historic Tricherchi Winery and we had wine shipped to the US. Lunch was great and we had a really wonderful time.

Fantastic tour! Recommend highly! Our group visited two wineries which were charming and the wine tastings were excellent. The lunch was homemade by the winery owner and served in a quaint and lovely tasting room. Our driver and guide were professional, courteous, knowledgeable and friendly.

We had a wonderful time. We loved the tour and the fact that we went to small local vineyards that are organic and sustainable. The lunch was amazing and all locally made. Fresh meats, yummy cheese and the meat sauce on the pico was delicious. We spent so much time enjoying the wine and the food at the first stop that we had a quick tour through Montalcino. It was siesta time so most places were closed. Would love to go back and see more of this lovely countryside. Our guide Gilberto was knowledgeable and kept us on schedule.

This was one of the best tours of our visit to Florence. My sister and I had heard of the Brunello wine region in Montalcino and decided to book a small group tour highly recommend. Tomasso was our tour guide and he was not only knowledgeable of wines and the wine regions of Italy but also extremely down to earth and humorous. He made the tour very enjoyable and memorable. We visited the homes of two small wine producers, toured the vineyards and wine cellars where the wine is processed, tested the different wines, and then enjoyed a customary Italian lunch and wine of course with the winery owners. We also did a walking tour of the small town of Montalcino. This was a full day excursion and well worth it! The wine was so good, we had a case shipped back to the USA so our family can enjoy a little taste of Italy during the holidays this year.

Our tour guide was Gilberto, who was prompt, courteous and knowledgeable. He never made us feel rushed at any point and he was great company throughout a very long and enjoyable day. The two vineyards we were taken to were small family owned and operated Brunello producers. We were made to feel welcomed at both wineries. When we arrived we were given a tour of the vineyard, which started at the vines, then to the production area and finally to the cellars. This experience enhanced our knowledge of Brunello wine production. Lunch was provided at the first vineyard, which was a wonderful traditional Tuscan meal that included homemade pasta, cheese, hams and dessert and of course wine. We were both purring over the pasta made with simple ingredients and fresh tomatoes grown only meters away. We appreciated the break between visiting the first and second winery, as we were given a tour of the town of Montalcino. Definitely a highlight of our trip to Florence. Highly recommend this tour to any wine enthusiast.
