What people are saying about Montalcino

This entire experience was amazing. Starting off, they pick you up at your hotel. They went out of their way to accommodate my group as we bought our tickets only a few hours before. We did the brunello tour. It was a 10/10 experience. The vineyards were stunning, the wine was delicious, and the organization of the whole tour was outstanding. You absolutely MUST do this tour if you can. It was one of the most memorable days of my life.

The visit of the small castle was nice although it would have been more complete with a small tour of the vineyard. The lunch at the end of the visit is not to be missed for the quality and genuineness of the local dishes offered. To report the courtesy and availability of our local guide. Excellent wine tasting.

Nicolò was an outstanding guide. He was punctual and spent a lot of time helping us understand Toscana and all it has to offer. We went to 2 very good wineries in Montalcino and another in Montepulciano before stopping in Pienza for a short while to enjoy great gelato. Highly recommend!

Unique and particular experience, an expert guide and a magnificent place, not to mention the fine wines that you go to taste! Super recommended :)

Great tour by Tomasso! Beautiful castle, beautiful vineyard and of course a great meal with awesome wine!
