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.

We thoroughly enjoyed our small wine tour - just four couples. We went to three wonderful wineries, that all poured at least 4 wines. Our lunch stop was wonderful. Just wish we had more time in the town of Montalcino.

This was an extraordinary tour and our guide, Stefano, went above and beyond. He was very knowledgeable about the wine-making process as well as Montalcino. We made an unscheduled stop at a wonderful very old abbey, as well as an extra wine tasting stop at a winery that also had 50 year old balsamic vinegar to taste. The highlight for us was the lunch that was served by the owner of the second winery we stopped at. Molto buono!!

This trip is organized by a man who went to college to learn about wine, grape growing, etc. He lived in multiple countries to learn about different areas of red wine. We went to three wineries in Montalcino. They were smaller family owned. The wines were amazing!! We just received our shipment of wine. Definitely ship wine back to the US. We ordered red wine in this region that was less expensive, has no bad chemicals and taste amazing than bad wine in the US. We want to bring our college age children to Siena and book with excursion with them.

I signed up for the tour as I really wanted to get to the vineyards and enjoy the amazing panaromas of the region. Stafano, our guide, brought us to Montalcino. He gave us insights into the wine making and shared his knowledge with us. It was a small group that day and we all blended well. The stop at Montalcino itself was short, but it was super hot that day, I guess we disndi mind returning to the air-conditioned van. 3 very different vineyards, each unique in their own ways. I didn't feel we were rushed or hurried. But have enough time to ask questions, chill and take in the scenery. It was great!

Our guide,Georgia, was amazing. She was knowledgeable and friendly. She made the trip more like seeing family than only wine tasting.
