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!
Great trip. Saw three very different wineries with excellent tours. Learned something different about winemaking at each venue. Had a superb lunch at one winery. Tour driver David was very friendly and professional and patient with our group of six. Highly recommend. Don't have to worry about drinking and driving and many of these wineries would be very hard to find without knowing the area.
Very well organized and great value for money. Mateo was a knowledgeable host - he could drive a little slower for our taste, but an engaging young man. We loved taling to Jackie after lunch, the lunch was great too. Now I feel like I know a lot more about Sangiovese.
This tour was absolutely the highlight of our two week holiday in Italy. Our guide was friendly, witty and extremely knowledgeable about Tuscany and the wineries as well as other locations in Italy. The van was comfortable and air conditioned which made for pleasant traveling. The wineries were excellent and lunch was superb in the midst of a vineyard. I would definitely recommend this tour!
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
