We start by taking the ancient Roman road Cassia towards the famous wine hill of Montalcino. The first stop is at a small and particular winery where we can walk among the vineyards, explore the cellars and enjoy an introductory tasting of the famous Brunello wine.

We later arrive to Montalcino, the hill-town that gives its name to the region and its wines. Here you have the opportunity of climbing the walls of the fortress where the brave soldiers of the Republic of Siena made its last stand to Florence and the Medici. Spend time visiting the towns stores, tasting the Brunello wines in the many wine bars or simply wander around the city walls and enjoying the incredible views overlooking the valleys and vineyards below.

After our visit to the town of Montalcino, stop to visit the stunning ancient mystical Benedictine abbey of Sant'Antimo, a special place set in fabulous landscapes, which permeate peace and tranquility, truly one of the main wonders of Tuscany. Whenever possible you can witness the monks sing in Gregorian and enjoy the nature surrounding this abbey.

Arrive to a family run winery where we are introduced to the owners and winemakers, we visit the farm before sitting down to enjoy a traditional Tuscan meal accompanied by the delicious wines produced here. It could occur that the farm for some reason is unavailable on the day. In this case we will enjoy our traditional Tuscan meal in a characteristic and good trattoria.

In the afternoon we visit a third winery where we get a detailed description of the wine making processes, learn about the tools used, the way the vines are cared for and about the aging in oak barrels that this wine must have by law for many years. After visiting the cellars and getting to know the winemakers we sit down for a last tasting of this nectar of the gods.

“We had the most fantastic trip on our brunello wine tour. It was the best tour on our whole Italian trip. Daniel our expert guide was so funny, passionate and informative about the full processes of wine making from start to finish. He was also fantastic at answering any questions and a tour guide of the areas we were traveling through. He even stopped at the hilltop town of montalcino and a beautiful hidden Abbey. We visited three separate Vinyards all fantastic however the Vinyard where we had the most outstanding lunch was the highlight. We both thought it was the best lunch of our whole trip, Grazie Laura. We wouldn't hesitate to go in this tour again if we return to Tuscany, if you get Daniel he totally makes your trip. Thank you for a great day.”
