There were 8 of us on this tour and we all thought it was fabulous. Though we didn't know the wineries we would tour, it didn't matter. One member of our group, said it the best, Our wine guide was certainly one of the most knowledgeable I've run into, but what was most enjoyable was his obvious passion for the subject of Italian wines. He exhibited this passion with just the right amount of interesting detail, no small trick when it comes to talking about wine! His choice of the three vineyards he took us to was impeccable, highlighting some of the more obscure examples of the art and science of wine making. The fact that the third vineyard was serendipitously the wine maker whose wine I had served at my daughter's recent wedding could not have been a better ending to a truly memorable tour.
I am late in posting my review, but this is one of the best days I had in Tuscany! All of the wineries were outstanding, and the lunch served was mouth watering. I like one of the wineries so much, I ordered wine to be delivered to my house for Christmas! I would recommend this tour to any traveler.
This tour was an amazing tour. Our tour guide was phenomenal. She was friendly, a great sense of humor and very knowledgeable about the stops that we made. the lunch at the second vineyard was the highlight!!! the food was fantastic and the wine of course just as good. the hosts at the vineyard were fabulous as well. can't say enough about this tour and highly recommend it to anyone visiting this area.
This tour was totally enjoyable. Elena was a fantastic, well informed guide and we had a great day. We got to see lots of the beautiful countryside too, and taste a variety of wines as well as having a regional lunch. Totally recommended.
Loved the small group aspect. The wine was great and the information was conveyed well not boring or monotonous. The lunch that we had was so good. Definitely worth every penny.
Dario was a wonderful tour guide- charming and full of wonderful tid bits about wine and Italy. We had an amazing visits at 3 wineries and a fantastic lunch at one of them. The winemakers were passionate about their growing practices and their wines. I would highly recommend this trip. The drive is a bit long but well worth the time spent.
Amazing day spent learning about the different wines of Montalcino, including several tastings of the world famous Brunello. Even on a rainy day, there was nothing to complain about. The guide was terrific and entertaining and the wineries were small family owned and welcoming.
This is a great tour in the wine country of Brunello. Be aware that of the wineries you visit they will all be Brunello wine, which is just one one of the wine region's in Tuscany. The stop in Monticino is awesome, and castle is a great thing to trek up to. The lunch provided is delicious and of a quality high end restaurant. Our driver and tour guide spoke fluent english and was very knowledgable about the area and open to answering any questions about the area and Italy in general. Would highly recommend this tour
We really enjoyed the tour of the three wineries. We especially liked the lunch with one of the winery owners in their wonderful home. Our guide was very knowledgable and pleasant.
Great overall experience! Marella was great, friendly, and very knowledgable. Visited three vineyards and wineries, a beautiful abbey, and the town of Montecino. We had a home cooked meal outside at the second vineyard which was my favorite part of the trip. This is more of an educational experience so if you are looking to drink a lot of wine in a little amount of time, I would not recommend. However, you learn a lot and drink three wines at each of the three wineries. Very beautiful and scenic views, the most beautiful we saw while in Tuscany. Also, the guide of another group called his friend at a highly acclaimed restaurant in Siena to get us a last minute reservation which we appreciated a lot. Overall, a great experience!
