What To Expect

Begin your day trip with pickup in central Siena. Meet your guide and hop aboard your minivan, setting off toward Montalcino.

Travel into the Tuscan hills and stop first at a small winery for a walk among the vineyards. Swirl and sip the famous Brunello di Montalcino, and check out the cellars with your guide.

Next, arrive in the town of Montalcino, the region’s namesake. Soak up some free time to roam the area independently, enjoying the views of the valley below, perusing the shops or tasting more of the celebrated Brunello wines.

Afterward, journey to a family-run winery, where you’ll meet the winemakers. Delve into some of the region’s culinary favorites with a lunch of antipasti, pasta or risotto and dessert, complemented by delicious local wines.

Appetites sated, continue to the ancient Benedictine abbey of Sant'Antimo. Learn about the stunning structure’s history as you follow your guide inside. On occasion, visitors will hear the monks singing Gregorian chants while taking in the scenery.

Top off your trip with a visit to a third winery for a fascinating lesson on production, the aging process and more. Take a seat for a final tasting before returning to Siena.

Perfect day in Montalcino!
Lisa_R, May 2023
What a wonderful day this was. Our tour guide Daniele was incredibly knowledgeable about wine, wine production, and the vineyards in the area. It was an absolute delight to learn from him and to visit three wineries while taking in the Tuscan landscape and stopping at Montalcino and Sant'Antimo. Lunch was included at Villa a Tolli, and it was terrific. All in all it was really a perfect day.
Excellent must do if you are looking to taste excellent wine

Excellent day with great tasting and the food at the second vineyard was excellent. Day perhaps prolonged by visit to the abbey which was good but made the final vineyard a bit of a haze. The day was nearly a calamity with a mix up over the pick-up but overall a great day. Thanks to Juliana.

Wine Tour of Montalcino
Brad_C, May 2023
The tour was fantastic, do not be dissuaded by the length. The time flew by, as our guide, Mattio, kept us entertained with knowledge of the area and the wine making process. The scenery was great, but the highlight of the trip was the snacks in the morning, the lunch and of course the great wine!
The best experience possible!

Full day of enjoyable experience
Bea_A, May 2023
Really nice pace, the stop in town was too short. Last winery felt rushed and didn’t hear more about the wines.
Beautiful day!
Linda_R, May 2023
We had an amazing time on our small group tour with Mattia! He was extremely knowledgeable, polite, engaging, welcoming and fun. He worked hard to pull the group together while we explored the region. And an excellent driver too! The wineries we visited were fantastic and overall it was a great day. We’d recommend this experience!
Amazing experience!
TERESA_W, May 2023
Be sure to book this tour! Amazing experience! Juliana was a kind and informative guide. She explained the regions & the wines we would be tasting as well as describing the vineyards we were attending. Best part was the incredible views, wines, food & new friends!
An experience you will not forget
scaputo3030, May 2023
This is an absolute must. Our guide was excellent and knowledgeable on wines too. We started at a larger Producer, then to a mid size and lastly a small Producer. The experience and information on wine making was excellent. Especially the smallest winemaker who was so passionate about her wine. We had a lunch that melted in your mouth. Authentic Tuscana made by the owners mom in the kitchen. We had her come out to meet us so we could thank her. We also had a great group of people we became friends with!
Fantastic day with with incredible wines!
William_A, May 2023
This was an amazing day trip which included two wine tastings, lunch at a third winery, a visit to a beautiful Romanesque abbey and 30 minutes to visit Montalcino. The Brunellos were world class, our hosts wonderful, and guide Georgia very knowledgeable and informative. Highly recommended as a day trip out of Siena!
Guide great, wine great. Abbey - been there done that
Steve_H, May 2023
The wine was excellent and our guide was very informative. Could have skipped the Abbey. Lunch was excellent. The choice of vineyards was well done
Fantastic tour!
Sara_Z, May 2023
Excellent tour! The wineries we visited were great (some better than others but all were a great experience). The views were incredible- unlike anything we’ve experienced before. We also had a wonderful lunch at one of the wineries in the winemaker’s home. Declious! And the best part was our amazing guide - Mattia. He is a former winemaker himself (one with great accolades) and was so educated on the winemaking process! We learned so much from him. We were so glad we booked this. We will always remember this tour!
Do not miss this wonderful opportunity to see gorgeous Tuscany And taste some delicious wines!
azheartnurse, Apr 2023
Danieli was a most knowledgeable and personable tour guide. This experience was the highlight of our three week Italian adventure! All three wineries we visited were exceptional and the hosts were most gracious. Loved the small feel of these three distinct wineries. Lunch prepared by Susana, one of the owners, was delicious! We bought several wines from each site, they were all so delicious. This is a must do experience, well worth the money. It is an all day adventure into the beautiful Tuscan countryside; we left at 9:30 am and returned to siena after 6. Loved every minute!
Discovering one of my new favorite wines, Brunello di Montalcino
James_C, Apr 2023
The in depth tours at each of the three wineries we visited and the lunch that was provided was superb. Our tour guide Keke was outstanding. His knowledge of the region, the wines and the process was incredible as well as the ancient history of this beautiful Region.
