We went here with our family and I have to say it was one of my favorite parts of our trip. Our guide gave us a tour of the beautiful grounds (not too long, not too short) of the vineyards and cellars on the property. The biodynamic methods they use are rare among winemakers and my husband and I were... More

Our family of six spent several hours at Avignonesi last week. We were a little early for our lunch and tour and the host gave us a treat while we waited. The tour was great and the lunch was amazing! It's a great setting for an event as well! We loved all the wine pairings. It really was a special... More

We unfortunately did not have the required time to do the Wine Tasting Lunch so we opted for a private tour and tasting. We enjoyed tasting their various Sangiovese vintages and learning more about their famous Vin Santo desert wines. We would highly recommend stopping here as not only are the wines delicious, but the tour was informative and the... More

Free parking and very professional. Can / should prebook tours. Expensive tour and tasting but top products and service and knowledge of staff was really good. May cost you though. This is not low price wines. They ship all over the world.

We missed the tour so just tasted, bought and wandered about. Lovely lady very helpful. Explained about the special wines and the special techniques used at this winery. Great free shipping policy if you buy nicer wines.

We had the wine tasting, excluding lunch and were slightly disappointed. The walk to the vineyard was nice, while also our guide explained things in a professional way. The tasting however was only meant to sell most expensive wines. If I remember well the cheapest one was 30 euro stepping up to 50 and 99 euro, not really something to... More

We were a bit late for the tour of the vineyard and winery but we're thrilled to enjoy the amazing, fresh and artisanal lunch at Avignonesi. The staff were wonderfully attentive and generous with the wine tasting. Oh yes, the wine was terrific with a full scale of range and types. Loved it and would have hated to miss it.... More

We were staying in Chianti so it was an hour and a half drive to get to Montepulciano and I wondered if it was going to be worth the drive. It turned out to be an amazing experience. The tour was really fun and informative and I got to learn quite a bit about the wine making process. Their restaurant... More

Beautiful setting. We came here for wine tasting, which was absolutely fantastic, especially the 50-50. The host, Leticia, was super friendly. We enjoy having a conversation with her.
