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.

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.

Our driver William, made the trip pleasurable. He gave us key information about the area while driving along with some things about the vineyards. However, he didn't want to give us too much information so we wouldn't hear it again at the winery. He was a very safe driver always taking the traffic /passengers into consideration. We were so impressed of the hospitality of wineries to open up their homes to us & share their life ambition. Their wines were memorable enough that we ordered from all to go back to the states where we will share with other wine drinkers Thankyou for making this tour memorable & worthwhile one !!!!!

Great experience in Montalcino

We really liked the quaintness of the lunch and wine tasting, very tasty and personable. The 3 vineyards we visited were all unique with their own spin on how to create a memorable product. The wines we tasted were wonderful and varied for the regions the vines came from to give a good sense of the product of the region. Great experience that was limited to small group of 8.

Georgia was an outstanding guide! She provided wine expertise, cultural insight, and historical perspective to the group, tailoring her message to match her audience, after inquiring about the background of all travelers. She was a joy to be with for the entire trip!

Mattias was very knowledgeable since he was previously a winemaker. The vineyards visited gave us a well rounded view of brunello wines. We were able to stop 3 times in various towns to explore on our own as well.

The informative and passionate wine story telling by tour guide Danielle. Just brilliant. He kept us entertained for the whole journey especially at lunch with the other tour guide where they made comedy at each other’s expense. It was lovely.

Mira was an excellent guide and the wineries we toured were top notch. The tour and lunch at Cava d'Onice was one of the most memorable parts of our trip. This tour is well worth the money and time.

It was the best day would 100% recommend! Our guide (Amberia) was great! She had a fun attitude and was very knowledgeable about the wineries and regions we visited. We visited three different wineries which provided a great mix but the highlight was homemade at the family-run winery in their beautiful Tuscan villa. We had a great group and enjoyed the wine, and the company alike. Was a highlight for sure!

Had such a great time wine tasting. Fun group that we spent the day with. Our guide, Mattea, was very knowledgeable, having been a wine maker himself in the past - and he just made the day so much fun and very interesting. So nice to just relax and let someone else take control of the agenda. Great way to spend the day!!

We had an amazing time on this tour. We learned about Brunello di Montalcino and drank some great wines. Our tour guide Mare was friendly and knowledgeable. She made time for stops along the way to each of the wineries to give us a flavor of all that Tuscany has to offer. If you are looking for a relaxed but educational tour this is a great choice.

What a fantastic day with our guide Guglielmo! He was the perfect guide. Not only did he bring us to fabulous wineries, he was able to provide a ton of historical info about the area. Which we loved. Lunch was perfect, paired with great wine. All the wineries were scenic and provided a great opportunity to meet winemakers who are passionate about their vineyards and their region. I don't even like red wine and I would do this again!

Daniel was a wonderful tour guide, as he had so much insight over many years of experience in the area. The tour felt very natural, and it felt like we were able to learn from Daniel’s interest in the subject. He was fun to talk to, and had great answers to any questions as it seems he enjoys what he does. The experience was great, and definitely helps us appreciate the work going into the varieties of wine in the region.

Highly recommend this tour. Our guide was knowledgeable and passionate about wine and winemakers. The sites we visited were memorable with postcard views of the Tuscan countryside. Each of the wineries had its own character, and the wines were superb.

Great day out with knowledgeable guide
Jeremy_G

Really enjoyable day. Daniele, our guide was extremely knowledgeable about wine and the history of vine growing at Montalcino. The trip includes wine tasting at 3 wineries, all quite different on scale and we got to try 3 different wines at each winery - a rosso di Montalcino, a brunello, and at 2 of the places, a rose. Highlights were a wonderful lunch with the 3 wines at the second winery, and a visit to Abbazia di Sant'Antimo, an ancient monastery outside Montalcino. Would definitely recommend.
