Good wine, good food, good company !
Sep 2021 • Couples
Excellent to discover the wonderful wines of Montalcino, from the Rosso to the famous Brunello, and also the more recent Rosés. The winemakers were all very eager to share they knowledge and their love for their craft. Interestingly two of the winemakers me met that day were following the principles of Biodynamics. They were all very generous with the amount of wine served during the tasting.

The lunch was pleasant, and relaxing in the shade of oak trees in the garden of that old Tuscan farm with a view of the surrounding fields was immensely enjoyable.

Davide, our guide and driver, was a lot of fun, and was very informative about the land we were in and the wines we were about to discover.

And to top it off, it was an excellent way to socialize with the other members of the group, so I highly recommend it for solo travelers looking to meet new people !

An absolutely perfect day tour!
Aug 2021
I highly recommend this day tour for anyone looking to sample some fantastic wines, enjoy the breathtaking views of Tuscany, and/or feel the true hospitality of Italian culture. Our guide, Daniele, was fantastic. He is so knowledgeable and adapted the tour to our interests and requests. The tour lasted just over 9 hours from pick up to drop off and we visited 3 wineries, the town of Montapulcino, and a beautiful abbey. Each winery offered a different atmosphere and history, which I felt really enriched our experience. Our lunch with Simone and Lucia at the second winery was fantastic and so delicious. I have done other wine tours around Siena and this one was definitely the best -- I would do it again or recommend to friends in a heartbeat.

Perfect wine tour
Aug 2021
Highly recommend this lovely day tour! Our guide Daniele was very knowledgeable and passionate and made us discover three handpicked wineries. Each of them was different so that we were able to get insights into different approaches and philosophies. The absolute highlight for me was the homemade lunch with local specialities and the accompanying wines at a small family run winery. The hosts made us feel at home and the food was amazing. Furthermore, I also liked the pace of the tour. We were never rushed and were given as much time as we needed at each stop. This tour was definitely a highlight of my stay in Siena.

Fantastic Experience!!
Jul 2021 • Friends
I cannot accurately state how incredible this tour was. Giorgia our guide provided outstanding information. She was beyond knowledgeable, not only about the locations we visited, but also about wine, wine making, and the local customs. All three wineries we toured we beautiful, the wine was exceptional, and we were served a delicious homemade lunch in the home of Simone and his wife Lucia at Cava D’Onice. We were happy to be able to buy wine to our heart’s content, and can’t wait to get our shipments to share our finds with all our friends at home. On a scale of 1-10 I rate this tour a 30.

Best way to visit vineyards in Tuscany
Jun 2021 • Couples
The tour lasted 1 full day and during which we visited 3 different vineyards, each one with its own peculiarities, the driver was very passionate and informative and his personal relationship with thinner of the 3 vineyards made the experience even more enjoyable. We had lunch with one of the wine producing families and that was amazing! We tasted 4 types of wine in each property and there is the chance to buy or get bottles shipped everywhere with very advantageous prices compared to the normal distribution. Everybody was very happy and the group of 5 people was just the perfect size. Expect amazing landscapes, perfect wine and incredible people!!!
