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 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.

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.

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.
