Tour was incredible, the food and wine pairings and our guide of the vineyard Massimo was wonderful. Our guide Amelia was very informative and made us feel like VIP clients. We would all highly recommend this tour.
We joined the 10 a.m. tour from Lucca with a group of English speaking travelers from many countries. We started with a short tour of the hilltop village of Montecarlo, then proceeded to a small winery close to the town. Emilia was an excellent and engaging guide, providing interesting and helpful information on a range of topics. The winery tour was especially good. We saw the barrels in which the wine is aged, then sat down to a tasting of two whites, two reds, a sparkling, and vin santo. The tasting was paired with a chef-made lunch that included locally made honey for dipping pecorino, polenta squares with gorgonzola cheese and mushrooms, crostini with raw zucchini pesto and liver pâté, panzanella, and caprese spears. And the winery also grows olives and makes a delicious, spicy olive oil that was available at the tasting. The tour lasted closer to five hours than four, and by the end all of the travelers felt like friends. We highly recommend this tour for anyone spending time in Lucca and looking for a way to see a bit of the Tuscan countryside.
A wonderful afternoon from Lucca on a small van with guide Amelia. The first winery was called Podere Spazzavento, a family run place. The owner gave us a wonderful tour of the vineyard and processing. We tasted six delicious wines, each of which we loved. We bought two bottles to take to our cruise ship. The second winery was more corporate and we tasted two red wines. We preferred the first, family run winery. The drive was about an hour and once we got into Chianti region it was truly scenic, with hills and small towns. Amelia was wonderful, friendly, and cheerful. Well worth it.
Michele was wonderful. He picked us up promptly at our meeting place and along the way, even stopped for a few minutes so that we could take some pictures in Pisa!!! Our wine tour was very informative and tasty!! Everyone was very friendly. A wonderful experience.
Absolutely loved this wine tasting experience. We wish we could have bought more bottles of the delicious wine from the small organic winery. The larger winery was awesome as well! Our tour guide was so sweet and we appreciated all of the information she contributed.

We really loved the 1/2 day wine tour. Our guide was very nice and the food and wine pairings were a real hit with our party. They only thing of concern is the description on the Viator website indicated that we were going to 2 wineries, one a smaller family site and the other a larger winery. We only visited the one family winery.
We have a wonderfull trip whit Emeli.
I think the company was verry messy. we order a after noon tripp and get it confirmed.
One day befor the trip I get a new mail that mention we have our trip in the morning.........
Emeli manage to bust us whit a lot of information about Montecarlo and the vineyard.
Thanks to Emeli the trip was realy good.
