3rd year in a row. Excellent food, outstanding wines. The 50/59 is exceptional, and really enjoyed the Occhio this year.

We had a fabulous experience at Avignonesi immensely enjoying the wine tour and ensuing lunch. The tour was great- informative and short enough to hold our attention spans (some tours last waaaaaaay too long). Valentina's English was excellent as was her explanation of the growing and ageing process, especially of the wines we were to taste with our lunch. She... More

We had a tour of the vineyard and a spectacular lunch with wine pairings. The food was outstanding and the wine never stopped flowing. They give you their higher priced wines with the meal and they don't hesitate to refill your glass. It was a great way to taste a cross section of their wines. We ate on the patio... More

We went there on a Friday to visit the wine domain and had reserved 3 weeks in advance the lunch that can be included in the program. This place is rather unique by its age and the way they produce wine. The lunch was excellent with a magnificent view on a Tuscan countryside. Their wines are excellent, including the Vino... More

The vineyard tour was wonderful. Usually you just tour the cellars but this tour took you out into the vineyard and explained their growing process which was fascinating and then we toured the cellars and had a wine tasting lunch. A wonderful afternoon in a beautiful setting.

We recently did the tour of this vineyard and participated in their lunch offering. The tour was very interesting. The winery is new age in it's organic approach and farming style. The lunch facility, service and cuisine was excellent but it is not inexpensive. The wine tasting was fun although we were not impressed but the vineyard best marque. We... More

We started doing a tour and visited the premises and our tour guide Letitia did an perfect job in explain the... More

We opted for the afternoon tour that started at 4pm. The tour lasted about an hour and 45 minutes. The tour ended with a tasting of four different wines. The entire experience was very informative and interesting. We had a lot of fun and would reccomend this tour.

I reserved this Wine Tour and Lunch at Avignonesi in Montepulciano before leaving for Italy, based on reviews on Tripadvisor. I'm very glad I did, since it was a highlight of my trip and the lunch one of the best meals I ate. It began at noon, but we arrived early, so walked around the grounds, checked in and offered...

The tour at this winery is different than other winery tours that I've been on because the methods used here are different. The English-speaking tour guide, Valentina, explained the experimental growing methods and the reasoning behind the methods. The fermentation methods were slightly different than I'd seen prior to this tour. The old buildings and architecture were just as interesting... More
