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

Visit September 2014. Stephania is without a doubt the best guide I’ve had visiting a winery. She was excellent at explaining procedures, methods and other difficult things in a very simple and interesting way. We got to see the wine fields, the drying room, the cellar with oak barrels and the attic with the famous Vin Santo in barrels. After... More

We got a little lost reaching the winery, but at the end I am just so glad we went to Avignonesi. Book the winelovers lunch and get a meal you would only see in movies. The gorgeous view, the delicious pairings of great food and world class wines, the friendly staff, the "omg" vin santo. So perfect! I could not... More

Highly recommend the tour around the vineyard and lunch at Avignonese. We had a great tour guide, Letizia, who was very informative and friendly while showing us the vines, drying room and ageing cellar. Lunch was spectacular- delicious food, great wines and impeccable service in a beautiful setting overlooking the Tuscan countryside.

We found this by googling "winetasting Montepulciano", and judging by the reviews in TA, we thought we would splurge on the tour/lunch experience. And were we amply rewarded with one of the highlights of our 2 weeks in Italy! Limited to 20, it was intimate without being uncomfortable. The tour in the vineyard and cave was fun, as good as...
