Let me first start off by saying that we were a little skeptical spending 95 euro per person on the tour, tasting, and lunch...but at the end of our near 4 hour visit it was worth every penny spent. The moment you walked on to the grounds you felt welcomed. First impressions are everything as Tamara (the patient and lovely... More

The vineyard is beautiful and set up nice and high however a few things you should know before... This is not in Montepulciano. It is about 25 minutes outside of the Centre....The drive is beautiful but just further then I thought. You must have a reservation for lunch and it is at 12:00. It also includes a tour. Lunch is...

Our first winery visit, but it was good. Relaxed, clever girl told us about a serious wineproducer doing it the ecological way. Very Nice atmosphere, calm, quiet, well sorted and prepared. Saw the experimental vineyard and the impressive small winecellar, before a relaxed and nice winetasting. We really enjoyed this and would recommend it to anyone who are uncertain if... More

We enjoyed a tour and full lunch at this winery. The tour was unique, as it included explanations on how unique their processes are in so many ways, as well as explanation about the process of creating Vin Santo. We have been to many wineries and enjoyed the fact that new innovations to the science of winemaking were explained. Though... More

we were received by Valentina, a young pretty nice italian girl. She definitely likes what she does, cause she can make you feel in love with the farm too, explaining tiny details.

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.
