We were 4 people and had wine tasting, without lunch and were disappointed. They have great wines (the 50/50 is really good but really expensive, starting at 99 E) and the tasting was only meant to sell their most expensive wines. They wrote on their brochure that we can have free tasting if we buy wine but the bad surprise... More

When you think of Tuscany, this vineyard is what I think of! So picturesque! Our guide was incredibly knowledgable and we all learned so much! Then after learning about all of their wines, we were treated to an exquisite lunch, with views of the vineyard what could be better?

Stefania our guide is great! Speaking like 5/6 languages and in a language that wine lovers can understand. Tasting of wine was also fantastic. For 15 euro we... More

Over the years we have visited several wineries in Tuscany. This one is set in a lovely location looking out towards Montepulciano. We took the wine tour and lunch option costing 95 Euro / person. The tour of the vineyard and cellars was very interesting and the guide presented their set-up and philosophy very well in excellent English. This is... More

We booked a tour and wine pairing lunch at Avignonesi, because we wanted something more than a 'typical' wine tour. And we got so much more than that. This vineyard is exceptional! It is owned by a Belgian woman who has turned it into a Biodynamic vineyard. Their philosophy is so wonderful, as is their sense of community. The tour... More

Beautiful spot near Montepulciano. Very interesting tour of the vineyards and their wine making process. Don't miss the opportunity to have lunch with wine paring.

We are interested in wine, enjoy a good lunch and are familiar with the Montepulciano area so having read the outstanding reviews for the Wine Lover's Tour and Lunch, we thought we should make a booking and give this experience a try. From the moment of arrival at the estate it is clear that everything at Avignonesi is done to... More

We went here with our family and I have to say it was one of my favorite parts of our trip. Our guide gave us a tour of the beautiful grounds (not too long, not too short) of the vineyards and cellars on the property. The biodynamic methods they use are rare among winemakers and my husband and I were... More

Our family of six spent several hours at Avignonesi last week. We were a little early for our lunch and tour and the host gave us a treat while we waited. The tour was great and the lunch was amazing! It's a great setting for an event as well! We loved all the wine pairings. It really was a special... More
