Fantastic day tasting Brunello wine
It was an amazing day in the Siena countryside. The scenery was fantastic and the three wineries we visited were very good. I had looked forward to this excursion for a long time and it was worth the wait.

San Gimignano, Chianti, and Montalcino Day Trip from Siena
Our all day tour was cancelled but we were offered a half day wine tasting as an alternative. Duccia was a knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide! We laughed and learned a lot. We visited two very memorable wineries that helped us understand the Brunello wine culture.

San Gimignano, Chianti, and Montalcino Day Trip from Siena
A really exciting excursion with two wine tastings. Including snack & wonderful insights into the landscape & villages of Tuscany! Really to be recommended! We met exciting people from all over the world at the tastings. Duration (11 hours) was perfect. We were even picked up at the hotel. :)

Half-Day Brunello di Montalcino Wine Tour from Siena
Carlo was very informative, the only thing I might change would be add some time in the town of Montalchino. But, I do understand it’s just a half day tour. The wineries were great with so much information and history! Loved it.

Small-Group Brunello di Montalcino Wine-Tasting Trip from Siena
Must do it! One can not say that you were in La Toscana if you don’t do this day trip I. The world of wines and food! Daniel was the best guide we could asked for! The love and passion for the land made the experience incredible! We had the most happy day, drinking wine and understanding the meaning of slow food and a how life is wonderful! I most warned you, after you have this tasting ordering wine in a restaurant will never be the same! ;)

Small-Group Brunello di Montalcino Wine-Tasting Trip from Siena
We've had a fantastic tourguide; Daniele. He had a great story about everything you want to know, was very social and had great humor. He made sure everybody felt comfortable all the time and you could sense that he loves the job. He talked very passionate about it. We've had a delicious lunch at a small vineyard, also with the best wines.

San Gimignano, Chianti, and Montalcino Day Trip from Siena
It is a nice tour. But it was not a 11 hrs trip. If it is 11, we could have spend more hours in the town of Montalcino for example(to enjoy the stunning view). But it was a nice trip. We visited the places indicated. Alex, our driver as well, was so kind. He discussed briefly about the place before we walk around the towns. Too bad, we only have 1 hr on each towns. And mostly we spend the trip on the van. But I think it is worth it! You can try it if you do not have a car.

One of highlights of our trip

Small-Group Brunello di Montalcino Wine-Tasting Trip from Siena
This was probably one of the highlights of our two weeks in Italy. We wanted to do this tour, not just for wine, but also to see the Montalcino area without having to drive. There were 4 of us total in tour so very personal and small, which is always nice. It lasted about 9 hours so its definitely an all day tour. We went to three wineries, all different from each other so that made it interesting. We also went to an Abby and to the town of Montalcino so we could walk around. We had an amazing lunch with the most gracious host in one of the wineries in their house. It was so amazing. Our tour guy Daniele was so nice and informative and we really just had the best time. Highly recommend if you have the time.

We visited three unique vineyards that provided a great overview to the Montalcino region. The second vineyard is where we had lunch with the family running the vineyard. Really enjoyed getting to know the unique characteristics of Brunello!

We really enjoyed the tour. The guide was energetic, knowledgeable and a great driver. We felt very safe. The vineyard selection was super and the lunch at the winemakers home was an experience we will never forget...great food, wine and conversation. Thank you for a great experience.
