Full description
Brunello, considered the best wine in the world, has its ancestral roots in the passion of the inhabitants of Montalcino and in the ancient winemaking tradition, handed down from one generation to the next. The town of Montalcino, with its Sangiovese grapes the wine is produced from, stands on a charming hill that lets you relish its natural wholesomeness. The town, its ancient fortress, and some of the best wineries in the world are the focus of this specialized tour. The winemaking process which includes a long maturation in casks made from valuable wood, make Brunello the “Italian ambassador in the world of our winemaking reality.” Taste prestigious wines from some of the finest wineries in Montalcino and enjoy the wonderful surrounding area.

Our guide met us on time in an easy and convenient location. From start to finish, we thoroughly enjoyed this trip. Our driver was great and provided plenty of information and history. My only suggestion, is that the driver use a microphone. The roads are bumpy and the van, although very comfortable, was noisy and it was hard to hear sitting in the back with the AC going. So, unfortunately, we missed quite a lot of what was said. The scenery was beautiful. Our driver kindly stopped at a huge field of sunflowers for a quick photo op before we stopped at the first winery. We highly recommend this trip.

Great experience. Very well organized both as regards the transfer and as regards the visits to the two wineries. Of the two I must say that I appreciated the first much more (Abbadia Ardenga) Great passion, cordiality and hospitality. He welcomed us with great humility and took us on a journey retracing the history of his company, also explaining the techniques and tools useful in wine production. When it was time for the tasting he made us sit in a room bringing us local products including cheeses and cold cuts accompanied by excellent bread. Visit highly recommended

Great experience - could have been longer

Overall a great trip! However, had booked with pickup from our accommodation. We were only informed a few hours before picking up that this was not possible. After a phone call to Get your Guide, an alternative pick-up could be arranged. The driver was very nice and told a lot of interesting information during the drive!
