Franco was a pleasure to spend the day with Stephanie and me. We visited two wineries ( Boscarelli/ Massimo Romeo) and had a wonderful lunch in the city center. We stopped frequently for photographs and we could tell Franco not only loved his job, but this region. He very knowledgeable about the area and the wines in the area. A... More

My husband and I were celebrating my 40th Bday in Italy for the past 2 weeks. We went on a the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano wine tour with Franco and was truly pleased. Franco's experience and true love for wine and this region shines through in so many ways throughout the tour. We went off the beaten path to small... More

We started the day with a trip to a local bakery near the wine fields for breakfast and coffees, all paid for. The first wine stop we were given a history lesson on the wine and the finding family's of the property we were on. Then we tasted 4 different wines they offered there. We then went for lunch to...

We recently booked the Brunello wine tour with Franco and had a great time. We had a very interesting international group of 8 to travel with and learned a lot about this type of wine and the region. The tastings were generous, and the meal more than sufficient at the second winery. Generous portions of both food and wine with... More

My wife and I recently spent a day touring Montalcino with Franco. We were staying a bit away from Siena (where the tour originates) so we made plans to meet up at a hotel near Siena. All went smoothly and we met Franco at 8:30am. We picked up 4 others in Siena and headed towards Montalcino. We stopped at a... More

We booked this tour based on the experiences on Tripadvisor. Everything said is true. My wife and I and our two sons had a perfect day together with our american traveller. The wine was excellent, the food was outstanding and the company of Franco made it perfect. Next time we visit we will certainly book another tour with Franco. Fam.... More

I saw the Tripadvisor reviews and ratings for Franco Fadda and questioned how anyone can have such a high review rating. The best way to answer that is- GO wine tasting with Franco and you will agree it is a 5 on a scale of 5. Franco is a Wine mentor, teacher and great person to spend a day with.... More

My husband and I recently took a Brunello wine tour with Franco. It was fantastic! We visited two wineries and had a fabulous lunch at a trattoria. The wine was delicious and Franco was so knowledgeable about the wine, food and history of Tuscany. It was a true highlight of our time in Italy.

Franco was incredibly hospitable and made us feel right at home in the many places he took us to. He was not only very knowledgable of the area, but also seemed very well connected with the wineries we visited, which made it even more of a special experience. There were several delights outside of the wineries, including visiting sunflower farms,... More
