A wonderful tour and lunch with in house chef, very talented, thoroughly organized and planned. The wine is excellent! If you like what you were drinking they left the bottle. A great example of you get what you pay for. My criteria for travel is to seek out the best experiences and price is secondary and as always, when you... More

As I have been on a few other wine tours before, I have seen both ends of the spectrum and know what to expect. Avignonesi has beautiful grounds and facilities. The service and the tour itself were both well-run. The only focus of the tour though was Vin Santo and just about nothing on the other wines they produce so... More

If you pop in for a tasting, the experience is just ok. Which I can understand since we did not make any reservations but, the wine list available for tasting is small and the wines were really again... just ok. The Vin Santo is nice but overpriced.

Had a scheduled tour here recently and we were very pleased. The vineyard tour was quite educational and the tour of the Vin Santo production was worth the entire tasting fee. Liked the wines although we felt they were a bit overpriced. Loved the Vin Santo. You will not believe what it is like!

Had a reservation for a tasting menu, cooking class and tour of the vineyard. Great experience. The food was excellent and the view from the restaurant impressive. Bought 6 bottles of their best wines and had them shipped to New York. It is really worth doing this to enjoy the Italian wine scenery.

Our tour guide was articulate and provided excellent information regarding the winery's products. All staff were gracious and knowledgeable. Food and wine were delicious and the service impeccable. It was one of the highlights of our trip to the region.

We spent a delightful time visiting Avivgonesi touring the vineyards, cask storage facilities and tasting room. Enjoyed a tasting of their Vino Nobile. Rosso, Vin Santo and surprisingly, Chardonnay, which was superb & crisper than our California Chardonnays. Enjoyed a pleasant antipasto and bruschetta on their lovely outdoor terrace. Views were classic those of classic Tuscany. ...

We stopped by here for a vineyard tour and lunch and not only was the wine amazing, especially their very special vin santo, but the food was spectacular. Much of the produce was grown in their garden right outside the dining room.

The tour was somewhat informative and Interesting but would have been even better if the Swiss couple didn't bring their unwieldy youngsters with them. Lunch was delightful. Food was quite good, especially the pici. My wife's rabbit was quite nice, the beef was ok. Very much liked the Chard. Very different from oaky Californian chard - this was bright and... More

Highly recommended wine tour and tasting with lunch, at 95 euros. Worth the money you spend. Starts with visiting the vineyard with Prosecco wine, then the grape drying area then the bio dynamic process. The whole experience is capped off with a 4-course lunch and wine tasting in their guest house with glass walls and doors to have a complete... More
