Wine Tour Description

Brunello di Montalcino is arguably one of the most esteemed wines in all of Italy. Aged for at least five years and made entirely of the Sangiovese grape, this elegant red wine is enjoyed most by those who appreciate reds with bold flavors and rich aromas.

Your tour will begin with a drive through the picturesque hills of Tuscany to the small region of Montalcino just south of Siena. Here, you will visit two of our favorite wineries and have the opportunity to meet the proprietor and explore the cellars while provides you with a comprehensive look at the wines and the winemaking process. In addition, our knowledgeable guides will give you a history of the region and pointers on how to best taste the wines during the tasting.
