The wines we tasted were delicious we bought 4 bottles to ship back to USA. The cheeses and salamis you taste one the tour are worth the trip alone. We... More

My better half, myself and two friends we were traveling with, along with four other very nice people, made up our group for the Brunello Del Montalcino tour. Franco picked us up at the door of our B&B in Siena in the morning and we went off in his like new, air conditioned van during a very hot spell in... More

We had only a couple of days in Tuscany and wanted to make the most of it, so we decided to go on a Brunello di Montalcino tour with Franco. Absolutely the best decision of our trip! It is easy to communicate with Franco via e-mail, and he promptly answered all of our logistical questions. On the day of the... More

This was one of the highlights of our trip. Franco made us feel as though we were friends visiting him and that he was showing us around town. The first vineyard was very quaint and special. Gabriella was a very gracious and sincere host and we thoroughly enjoyed the tour. The wine was delicious as well. The tasting was accompanied... More

Ah, Franco. What a character, and I mean that in a positive way. If you tend to be a little uptight and cut-to-the-chase (be honest), you may want to consider another way to spend a day in Tuscany. But if you are willing to surrender to a long day of wine, wine education, food, driving through gorgeous hill country and... More

My wife and I just today enjoyed a truly amazing day with Franco. We booked the shared Brunello tour and ended up having it be just the two of us, giving us a highly personal experience. Franco arrived exactly on time at our hotel in Siena (which, by the way, is unexpectedly my favorite city in Italy so far; I... More

My mother and I booked the full day Brunello di Montalcino tour while in Florence. We took an early bus to Siena where Franco prompt met us. We traveled with three others who were delightful. Franco spared nothing to provide us all with a truly unforgettable memory. His passion for and expertise of the local area, history, people and wine... More

Franco picked us up at our hotel for a small group tour and a fantastic lunch. We had the opportunity to learn about the Tuscan region, see beautiful hills, towns, and people. He took us to two winery's, a local deli, and a local restaurant. Our day was full of exploring and interacting while visiting two well respected winery's. We... More

We booked an afternoon half day wine trip with Franco, and as we were the only people on the tour, it made for a very personal experience. Despite the terrible weather we really enjoyed the trip around Montalcino, and both of the wineries we visited were excellent. Franco was knowledgeable and friendly throughout the day.
