“Brunello Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

I can strongly recommend Donatello's tour. We took our son and daughter-in-law as a birthday gift. Even with a mostly rainy day we still had a wonderful time. The food was outstanding. The vineyards staff were very informative, and wines were glorious.

“Very personal tour of Tuscany”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

We chose Donatella from reviews I had read here, Everything was as described. Donatella is very enthususiastic about the region and the wines.

My wife and I travelled with another couple. We were greeted in Florence in the morning. It took
about an hour to get into the tour area. This time was used as an introduction to the region we were about to tour. We also got to know Donatella, and she learned about us.

When we got to the wine country we got to meet winemakers, and walk in the vineyards. We had
4 wineries and each was a little different. The wines and homemade appetizers were delicious.

I think this tour is so unique that I could go again and have another spectacular experperience.

“Brunello Region Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

We had a great experience on the Brunello Region Tour. There was a total of 11 people including the three adults in our family. This tour included a visit to a organic farm, an organic winery, lunch, followed up by another winery. We especially enjoyed the organic and local aspect or the tour. At the farm where we enjoyed site produced organic Pecorino and goat cheeses, as well as the local and very personal lunch prepared just for us at another farm. Both Brunello wineries had lovely wines. Very friendly and knowledgeable service by Donatella and her second van driver E.

“"The perfect day"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

My husband and I went on the Chianti Region Wine Tour with Donatella as our guide. She went out of her way to pick us up in Florence and greeted us with a genuine smile. Donatella took us to 4 vineyards with olive oil production at all of them. Each winery was unique and different from one other. We had the pleasure of one on one personal contact with each, and they all provided us with wine and appetizers, we even ended the day with a memorable lunch at a beautiful Tuscany home with friends of Donatella. We were provided with great information about the Chianti Classico and the Tuscany region. Donatella is the kind of person that makes you feel like you've made a new friend by the end of the day. The price of the tour is worth every penny, don't miss out on this experience.

“A Tuscan Flavors Adventure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

If you are interested in a day of organically produced artisanal cheeses, tasting the fabulous wines of Tuscany (Brunello anyone?), and enjoying traditional dishes prepared by local farm residents, then contact Donatella and get ready for a memorable adventure! As the tour begins, you will be provided with a fun and informative background on the region, its foods and wines. All of a sudden you turn off the local main road and are traveling down a picturesque gravel road wondering where you are and what lies ahead. The destinations do not disappoint! You will meet local artisans of cheeses, vintners of organic wines and a country meal freshly prepared. The owners at each of Donatella's stops are friendly and very knowledgable of their crafts. A guaranteed enjoyable day.
