The winery sits on a beautiful hillside and the tour culminates in a delicious lunch and wine pairing. But, the setting is what makes this extraordinary. The outdoor, but enclosed, seating is lovely and the view is simply breath taking.

We booked ahead for our vineyard tour followed by four course lunch and wine tasting at Avignonesi - on the border of Tuscany and Umbria, Montepulciano and Cortona. Very organised set up and extremely knowledgeable tour and explanation of the bio dynamic and organic vineyard. Delicious lunch accompanied by tasting with each course. Very much enjoyed our day and glad... More

We spent a lovely afternoon at Avignonesi for the winery tour, wine tasting and lunch! It was a true delight starting with a glass of Prosecco upon our arrival. Alaria - our guide for the tour - was delightful, warm, and welcoming and shared her knowledge about the winery and grape growing. All of the wines we tried, including their... More

We went to experience the wine tour. We got a very detailed introduction to the art of making wine, as well as a wine tasting session. We ended up buying wine, and were very nicely welcomed to the vineyards. The surroundings are fantastic and the experience lovely. The only reason I'm would give slightly less than five stars is that,... More

We were so happy we took the time to visit Avignonesi....we took a tour (about 10 people, very small and intimate) through the vineyards and also into the cellars. Our guide was wonderful and it was really amazing to learn the history and the background of the (organic) winery. Afterward we sat outside on a lovely terrace with incredible views... More

We enjoyed a perfect day of food and wine at Avignonesi. One of our most memorable afternoons were spent here. We enjoyed the luncheon with wine paring. The winery is in a beautiful location, the setting was spectacular and the food and wine perfect. Must book ahead, reservations a must. Our friends ordered 3 cases of wine to be shipped... More

We wanted a true Italian winery experience and Avignonesi did not disappoint. We mentioned we we were heading to this winery to a somalier in Florance. She couldn't have been more excited for us and said it was her favorite place. The location is absolutely gorgeous. Vineyards as far as the eye can see. We started with a tour that... More

We had a very fun, informative and delicious time at Avignonesi Wineary. We we were advised to go by the Doug Levy, owner chef at Feast in Tucson Arizona. We were delighted with our experience. Their wine operations are state of the art - keeping the best of traditional ways and modern science. Our meal and accompanied wines were special... More

As all the other reviews say...it's brilliant here. Lovely staff, great tour and 4 course lunch trying 7 wines. Decent glasses too. Tried a 1999 vin santo :) Great views. Stayed at borgo tre rose about 10min drive up the road if anyone is looking to stay nearby.

If you love wine & good Italian food do not miss the tour & lunch at this incredible place. You first visit the beautiful grounds and caves with a knowledgeable guide. Then you proceed to the beautiful patio for lunch. This is a long lunch with many courses and plenty of wine. Their olive oil is also fabulous. Allow a... More
