“Montalcino Wine Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

I can't say enough great things about Giovanni and his ability to make time spent in Tuscany an extraordinary experience. His insight into the wine culture of the region, his restaurant recommendations and his overall knowledge of Montalcino made out trip beyond memorable. When my wife and I parted from Giovanni in Rome, we parted as new friends. We look forward to seeing him again soon.

What to say?.. Thanks a lot!
We love Montalcino, Tuscany and this job we created even because guests sometimes become friends and because staying here, for us, is like a travel without moving: the world comes to us!
A presto, ciao!

“Giovanni is the best !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

A friend and I went on a wine tour with Giovanni at the end of April. I was so impressed. The wineries he chose were spectacular, and the conversation inviting. He is very passionate and knowledgable about the area. I will be sure to book another excursion with him on my next trip.

“A very personalized, finely tailored experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

I spent two days with Montalcino Wine Tours' Giovanni Paris. He took me around some very nice boutique wineries, a pecorino cheese maker and some lovely hilltowns in the surrounding area.

Giovanni speaks excellent English and I find him very passionate about food, wine and everything that makes this area special. We purposely avoided the big commercial wineries and Giovanni and his partner introduced me to several small but excellent wine producers. Each has their own story and you can see they do what they do for the love of it. Giovanni also knows a few cooking schools run by local Italian women who will even take you to the local markets or forage in the countryside for wild herbs.

I enjoy it so much that I am going with him for another day tour to explore more food and wine. Very good experience!
