We had a great experience exploring Brunello di Montalcino wineries with Franco. He is very passionate about his Italian culture, food, and the wine, and the people in his life. We had a wonderful lunch at Cafe Sant ' Angelo, the best restaurant in Montalcino and enjoyable afternoon of wine tasting.

We spent a day taking in the wonderful sights, food, drink, slow pace and hospitality of Tuscany. We visited a small rustic winery in Montalcino in the morning to taste a few vintages of the Brunello. Then we moved on to an excellent slow 4-course meal plus either a caffe corretto or grappa. The pace for the daily activities set... More

This is just not a wine tour; it's a tour through Franco's life as a passionate Tuscan!! Yes, we enjoyed wine tastings, but it was so much more. Franco truly loves his country and heritage and is happy to share it with everyone who travels with him. Incredible scenery, remarkable Tuscan lunch cooked by the sweetest couple on earth and...

We recently went on Franco's Brunello Di Montalcino tour and could not have had a better experience. Franco has lived in the area his entire life, knows an incredible amount about the Tuscan region, and it really shows on the tour. We started by grabbing some local meats and cheeses at a roadside stand for the wine tastings. Next, we... More

We had the best day with Franco. From local delicatessen and coffee stops to get us going in the morning to the knowledge of the area to the patient answering our myriad of questions, he was great. We toured two wineries, three towns, had an AMAZING lunch and discovered some shops in Montalpuciano. Can't say enough. We were two couples... More

Franco made the day an unforgettable experience, a highlight of our week in Tuscany. Although the weather wasn't great, Franco brought some real warmth to the day with his passion for the wine & food of Tuscany. We were a group of 8 from UK, USA, Ireland, all staying in Siena & picked up from our individual hotels in his... More

As I look back on our 3 weeks in Italy, it's impossible to imagine a better way to spend our last day exploring the vast Italian countryside. To say that Franco's full day (10 hour) Brunello di Montalcino wine tour was "worth it," is a vast understatement...he exceeded our expectations and treated us to an unforgettable experience. As many of... More

Franco was such a gracious host for our all-day Brunello tour! This was more than a wine tour as he shared his knowledge about the local region, life growing up there, the history, and how the region gained its reputation for such amazing wines! We had a fabulous Italian lunch served from farm to table with local wines paired. The... More

Franco showed us the most beautiful Tuscan countryside, brought us to experience the brunello di montalcino at two different wine makers and we had the best Tuscan food for lunch! We even had the chance to sample very nice olive oil and grappa! It was a wonderful day spent in conversations with Franco and another 2 Canadian travellers! We had... More
