Being able to visit very rare and so different vineyards was a bonus. The host and driver was extremely knowledgable about not only the vineyards but also the local history. The lunch was superb. I thoroughly enjoyed the day and would highly recommend this to anyone interested in wines from the area
We loved our tour. Our tour guide was great and our lunch and wine tasting was excellent
This was an awesome tour! Great wineries, great food .
This was one of the best things i have done in the past 2 weeks in italy and i will absolutely seek out another tour like this one next time i travel. Our guide was amazing - knowledgeable, funny, friendly. A group of 8 is a great size as it feels less like a tour and more like an outing with a group of interesting people. The vineyards were stunning - and the wine was fantastic. The highlight for me was a delicious 4 course lunch with wine in a winemaker's beautiful vineyard/home. All experiences I never would have had without taking this tour.
This was a fantastic tour. Fun, educational, casual. I wondered how a wine tasting tour could take almost a whole day. Easily! We could have taken longer. I highly recommend the tour. Our guide was well versed in wine and it's history in Italy. She was fluent in English, and funny too.
The small group Brunello wine tasting tour was a highlight our recent trip to Italy. Marella, our driver/guide was both informative and fun. Our first stop was the small town of Montalcino, the center of Brunello wine production. We then visited three wineries, a nice sample of sizes and wine making styles and tasted three wines at each one. Marella was very information in describing the wineries and the beautiful Tuscan scenery. We had lunch at the home of one of the winery families and were treated as family guests. A delightful day in Tuscany.
The tour provided a full day with an excellent guide. The wine and food were wonderful.
Absolutely DO this tour if you are in Siena. Our guide, Daniel, picked me up at the hotel and began what was one of the highlights of my stay in Italy. Daniel knew much about the region that is Brunello di Montalcino and with humor and insight created fascinating explanations about the wineries we visited, the regulations about Brunello wine, and the kind, interesting people who run the estates. Oh, and then there is the wine. Yea, if you love a Sangiovese wine, a small-group Brunello di Montalcino trip is definitely the tour for you!
We had a wonderful time. The trip was beyond expectation which involved visits to three winery, at one of which we were served homemade meal. We also visited the town of Montalcino and an abby. The mini-van for transportation was of well condition and the timing of the trip was well managed.
Mare, our guide, was talented and interesting. She showed knowledge, passion and understanding of Tuscany.
We had such a great time on this tour. Marlenna picked us up and took us to a nice variety of wineries. Then, one of the wineries welcomed us into their home for a delicious home cooked meal while we had the wine tasting, which they had the best wine, in my opinion. This was one of our favorite trips, we highly recommend this tour.
