The food is excellent--refined and gourmet. We booked the vineyard tour, wine tasting and lunch outside, that included linen tablecloths, amazing service and spectacular views of Montepulciano in the distance. I love that the vineyard is organic! I cannot wait to return to Avignonesi in southern Tuscany.

We had a wine tour and the wine tasting luncheon offered by this winery. It could not have been better! The food is the very best we have ever eaten. The Chef came to each table for conversation and he was not only talented but a delightful host. The tour was very educational and well delivered in English by a... More

As I researched what to do in Montepulciano, I came across the Avignonesi Vineyard website. I looked through some of their tours and booked the Tour & Winelover's Lunch which includes a tour of the winery, wine tasting (7 wines) and lunch (4-course), all for €95. The booking process was a breeze with Paola, who greeted me at the Cellar... More

If you are planning a wine tasting trip in Montepulciano, you must go to Avignonesi. Having lived in the Bay Area for a couple years, I've been on a ton of winery tours and thought I'd learned everything. However, Avignonesi has so many unique aspects, in winemaking, farming, etc. We learned a lot of interesting information and had a beautiful... More

This is one of the best experiences when traveling in Tuscany. We booked the lunch paired with the wine tasting, and it was wonderful. First we toured the cellars with our guide Valentina, she is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The lunch was fabulous, as were the wines we tasted. The staff is very professional. We walked the grounds after lunch,... More

This winery is outside of Montepulciano and we at first ended up at the vineyards where they pick the grapes as we were a bit lost. The workers there seemed used to this and gladly told us where we needed to go, but we took a few pictures first. We didn't have reservations and the only thing available when we... More

Visiting Avignonesi: You are in Tuscany. We drove up the cypress lined road leading to the estate. The tour is very personal. The cellars are really beautiful. We started with winemaker Ashleigh Seymour. She spent plenty of time explaining the great care and dedication taken at this winery. Next was the tour of the beautiful vineyard and wine cellars. We...

I visited Avignonesi with my husband during our honeymoon in Italy. I had booked to spend the whole day there and was slightly apprehensive as it was quite expensive. Having now completed the day I would say it was worth every penny. Immensely good value. We started with pastries for breakfast and a delicious coffee. This was followed by a... More

We reserved in advance an afternoon tour and wine tasting and it was fabulous, fascinating, informative and fun. Our guide was Valentina, who was friendly, charming and attentive. The five wines tasted were delicious, especially the Grifi, Grandi Annate Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, and 50&50. The vineyard itself, and its variously purposed structures were gorgeously maintained; the views were completely... More
