I am not an experienced Wine Taster but the visit of the winery was amazing... the wine is excellent and the visit is really interesting since their production is based on a biodynamic agriculture. I would definitely recommend it.

We visited the winery and stayed for lunch in August, 2013. It was an amazing experience and one I recommend without hesitation. It started with the tour which was lead by a delightful local guide who was very personable and knowledgeable. The winery itself is interesting for it's biodynamic approach to growing the grapes and it's variety of wines, including... More

This was one of our highlights on our trip to Italy! Even though it was raining and our 9-month old baby had vomited all over us upon stepping foot in one of the cellars, it was absolutely fantastic! The staff was so knowledgeable and their service was unparalleled. The views were captivating, especially from the restaurant patio, where you could... More

Avignonesi Winery was recommended as a must see winery to visit. We were traveling with friends on a 2 week vacation to Italy and had already visited a number of other small wineries in Marche, Umbria, and Tuscany. Our visit was "off-season" (early November), so there was not the usual crush of visitors earlier in the year. We had made... More

As part of our honeymoon to Italy, we made a 5 night stop in Tuscany. It turns out one of the key highlights of our trip was a improvised visit to the Avignonesi Winery, near Montepulciano. The winery is situated in typical Tuscan rolling hills surrounded by beautiful organically grown vineyards. Upon our arrival, we were greeted with a nice... More

This place was recommended to us by a colleague who is a huge Italophile / food and wine lover. It did not disappoint - we probably had the best meal of our lives here. After eating, we toured the vineyard and drove on to Montalcino and Montalpulciano. Worth noting: it gets booked up pretty far in advance to get a... More

What a fantastic day we enjoyed at Avignonesi. We did the grounds tour and lunch, which was held outdoors in a greenhouse type setting. The service was attentive and the food was Tuscan, with an adventurous flair. The grounds are great to walk around, have a glass of wine and explore on your own. A tip for those of you... More

A highlight of our trip to Tuscany was a visit to the Avignonesi Winery outside of Montepulciano. The setting for this winery is just magnificent – on rolling hills surrounded by carefully manicured vineyards and tall cypress trees. The main buildings on the estate were classic Tuscan, and surrounded by beautiful gardens. We had reservations for a tour, tasting and... More

I visited Avignonesi with my girlfriend and her parents. The view was breathtaking and the facility was the perfect combination of old and new. Our tour guide Laura, was extremely informative and entertaining. The wine is some of the very best in the area, but with all of these wonderful things the staff is the highlight. From the winemaker, to... More

We had a great lunch and tour! It was a fantabulous experience of Tuscany food and wine! Eur 75 for wine pairing lunch (4 courses + coffee) and tour. Be sure to try to Vin Santo. Special mention to Klajdi who was so passionate about the food and wine and really made our lunch a truly enjoyable one.
