What You Can Expect

Small-Group Brunello di Montalcino Wine-Tasting Trip from Siena

Brunello di Montalcino

Begin your day trip with pickup in central Siena. Meet your guide and hop aboard your minivan, setting off toward Montalcino.

Travel into the Tuscan hills and stop first at a small winery for a walk among the vineyards. Swirl and sip the famous Brunello di Montalcino, and check out the cellars with your guide.

Next, arrive in the town of Montalcino, the region’s namesake. Soak up some free time to roam the area independently, enjoying the views of the valley below, perusing the shops or tasting more of the celebrated Brunello wines.

Afterward, journey to a family-run winery, where you’ll meet the winemakers. Delve into some of the region’s culinary favorites with a lunch of antipasti, pasta or risotto and dessert, complemented by delicious local wines.

Appetites sated, continue to the ancient Benedictine abbey of Sant'Antimo. Learn about the stunning structure’s history as you follow your guide inside. On occasion, visitors will hear the monks singing Gregorian chants while taking in the scenery.

Top off your trip with a visit to a third winery for a fascinating lesson on production, the aging process and more. Take a seat for a final tasting before returning to Siena.

This was our highlight in Siena. Domenico our guide was wonderful, we felt like family when the day was over. The wonderful wineries and the Tuscan lunch at the winery was perfect. Wines were delicious and we got so many beautiful pictures of the hills and vineyards. Definitely worth the time and the money

What an easy way to see the wonderful countryside, drink good wine, have a great lunch and learn many new facts about wine and the area from a great tour guide Danielle.
There were 5 of us on this tour, very comfortable minibus and a great knowledgeable guide in Danielle, he certainly knows his stuff and made the day a pleasurable experience.
All 3 wineries we visited were interesting experiences and though not all wines were great we enjoyed everywhere we went and would not change anything we experienced.

This tour was extraordinary. Every single detail was a beautiful surprise. Te wine is excellent and all the views around the Toscana are like heaven. Of course this tour would’ve not been that great without the espectacular guide Daniel. His knowledge was fundamental to catch our appreciation. :)

Cette tournée de dégustation était dispendieuse, mais je dois reconnaître qu'elle valait la peine d'être faite. Les vins dégustés étaient tous de la plus haute qualité. Le repas chez le producteur était délicieux et le couple qui nous a reçus mérite d'être mieux connu.

This was absolutely by far the best day we spent in all of Tuscany! Our guide Danielle was amazing! He was so passionate about the entire process of wine making that his enthusiasm was transferred to our group of 4 that were in his van! We visited 3 different wineries. They were all very unique with various specialties. Before each arrival, Danielle gave us background that was excellent to prepare us for the upcoming experience .I might add that he was quick to take my husband by van as close as possible to the area we would gather since my husband has a knee problem. At the second winery, we had a home cooked Tuscan lunch that I enjoyed as much as anything I had in my entire trip! It is possible to purchase wine if you wish...and of course, we did! The Tuscan countryside that we saw along the way was unbelievably beautiful and golden....just what I expected. For those of you wondering about bathroom stops, the first leg of the trip was about 40 minutes and then we stopped at an Abbey that had bathroom facilities. The wineries were only 20 minutes apart and bathrooms were available at those, also...so not a problem! I can't recommend this tour highly enough! Danielle was absolutely the best guide ever!

We just recently took this trip and everyone in my party thought it was excellent! David was wonderful and the wineries were great. We learned a lot about the wines on this tour and had an incredible lunch. The countryside is beautiful and can't wait to go back. I would highly recommend this trip. It gives you the opportunity to learn about wines, oils and see the countryside!

This was easily one of the best tours of my entire two-week trip in Italy. A lovely drive though the tuscan countryside to visit three top-notch vineyards and to taste Brunello di Montalcino wine. What could be better, except perhaps a home-cooked meal at one of the stops - a feature that was ALSO provided for. Couldn't ask for a better wine-tasting trip. It even included a few brief stops to see a couple of non-wine related sights and to let us stretch our legs.
