This place is as spectacular and more as all of these 5 star ratings say. When you first arrive, the grounds themselves are well maintained. There were 10 of us and we booked the tour, lunch and tasting. We were happily greeted with a wonderful glass of procecco. A few minutes later, we were greeted by our tour guide, Valentina,... More

After reading the recommendations on trip advisor for Avignonesi we asked our Accommodation manager his thoughts. His honest answer was, it is a beautiful location with fantastic wines and a great chef but expensive. With expectations set very high, Avignonesi delivered in every aspect. If you want to spoil yourself, this is the place to do it.

Thanks to Tamara who squeezed us in on our last day in fabulous Montepulciano. We found the wine tour one of the best we have ever attended. Stefanie (forgive if incorrect spelling) is interesting, knowledgeable and passionate about the company, their wines and how they produce them. She held the group's attention for a little more than an hour. Then... More

After much research and reading, this was one of 5 wineries we chose to visit on our 4 day trip across Tuscany. It was highly rated almost every place we read about it. And it absolutely lived up to its reputation. The wine tasting with lunch was incredible... an amazing four+ courses that paired wonderfully with the wines of the... More

Avignonesi works on every level: it's a stunningly beautiful wine estate with excellent views over the surrounding country; the guided tour was superb, our guide was a brilliant young woman who conveyed massive enthusiasm for, and a deep knowledge of, the wine making craft employed on the estate; the wine itself is excellent; but pride of place goes to the...

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.
