Our friends were celebrating their 25th anniversary and decided to arrange for a winery tour, tasting and lunch. The tour guide was friendly and fun. What she did not know about the vineyard and the production process was not worth knowing. The gourmet lunch was five star. Each wine was of course perfectly paired with each course. The Venezia served... More

My wife and I spend time in Tuscany but in the Chianti Classico wine district and wanted to try another area in Tuscany that still features the Sangiovese grape. The reviews on the wine tour and tasting combined with the lunch intrigued us and on a recent trip to Orvieto we stopped for a leisurely afternoon. The tour was very... More

If this is the only trip you make in Tuscany, you will not regret it. Do not be put off by the cost as it is worth every euro. The whole experience was delivered in a very professional, knowledgeable and yet friendly manner. Food and wine delicious. The wine tasting ran alongside the meal, and could not have been more...

If you get the chance, make sure you take the tour and enjoy the lunch with exceptional wine pairings including the amazing 50:50.

The common table lunch offering is well worth it -- SO GOOD !! You get to meet lots of other "wino's", and the wine and food pairings are to die for !!!

We had booked just the wine tour of Avignonesi but after reading the reviews we decided to change it to the Wine tasting luncheon. This was the best decision we made. The wine was fantastic and the farm fresh food was out of this world. Do not miss this.

The moment you enter this winery you absolutely know it's going to be fabulous. The tour guide was so knowledgeable and passionate about the Vinyard. Then the 4 course lunch and selection of wines, omg best value €100 each and worth every cent. Highly recommend this fantastic winery and it's excellent staff. Thanks Avignonesi!

This is not a cheap outing--95 euros for a tour, lunch and tasting 7 wines, but it was well worth it. The tour, about an hour long, provides a lot of interesting information about organic vineyards (and answered some questions we had had about why there were so many unused fields of flowers in Tuscany--take the tour for the answer)....

A bit hard to find, but well worth the effort. The staff was very knowledgable and friendly. We can hardly wait for our case of wine to arrive back in the states.

Very much enjoyed the winery tour followed by degustation lunch with matching wines. Though from our opinion it was really the food to match the wine they produce rather than the other way around. That said, both were delicious and refined...my wife and I shared all our dishes and there really wasn't one we didn't like. The vin santo dessert... More
