The tour lasted 1 full day and during which we visited 3 different vineyards, each one with its own peculiarities, the driver was very passionate and informative and his personal relationship with thinner of the 3 vineyards made the experience even more enjoyable. We had lunch with one of the wine producing families and that was amazing! We tasted 4 types of wine in each property and there is the chance to buy or get bottles shipped everywhere with very advantageous prices compared to the normal distribution. Everybody was very happy and the group of 5 people was just the perfect size. Expect amazing landscapes, perfect wine and incredible people!!!

This was one of the best regional tours we’ve ever been on. The tour was very well organized and our guide Daniele has a background in wine, so he knows the subject matter and is extremely passionate about. We went to 3 small wineries two of which were biodynamic. They wines were delicious, and the explanations at the wineries of their processes in the vineyard and cellar very detailed. We had lunch at the 2nd winery which consisted of a starter of cold cuts, cheese and a bruschetta as well, followed by pasta with a ragu which was delicious and the desert as well. You can also buy wines and they pricing was very reasonable — they had basic wines from around 15 - 20 euros and on up for the finer wines, but all budgets were covered. It was a full day affair, but between the guide, good company and good wines, one of the best days of our trip.

Wonderful full-day tour from Siena to Montalcino, including visits to the village, a nearby abbey, and three very different wineries. We received an extremely informative, hands-on tour of a very small winery (Giacomo was fantastic), enjoyed a fantastic lunch at a second, and visited a new multi-million dollar wine cellar at a third, and we enjoyed tastings of Brunella di Montalcino and Rosso di Montalcino (among our nine total tastings) at each of the three wineries. Best of all was our guide Daniele. Not only is he very knowledgeable of the region and its wines, but he demonstrated an excellent rapport with the hosts at each of our stops and he was a most pleasant person with whom to spend the day. There were a total of five guests on our tour, and I felt comfortable relative to sanitary/safety protocols.

This was a fabulous day out in the Tuscan countryside. Our guide Guglielmo was fantastic. Not only did he bring us to 3 great wineries but he had tons of historical info about the region and the Italian/Tuscan people. We had a brilliant lunch outside in the sun with perfectly paired wine. We also made a brief stop at a quaint old town, Montalcino and a historic Abbey. Would highly recommend!

Excellent to discover the wonderful wines of Montalcino, from the Rosso to the famous Brunello, and also the more recent Rosés. The winemakers were all very eager to share they knowledge and their love for their craft. Interestingly two of the winemakers me met that day were following the principles of Biodynamics. They were all very generous with the amount of wine served during the tasting.

The lunch was pleasant, and relaxing in the shade of oak trees in the garden of that old Tuscan farm with a view of the surrounding fields was immensely enjoyable.

Davide, our guide and driver, was a lot of fun, and was very informative about the land we were in and the wines we were about to discover.

And to top it off, it was an excellent way to socialize with the other members of the group, so I highly recommend it for solo travelers looking to meet new people !

I highly recommend this day tour for anyone looking to sample some fantastic wines, enjoy the breathtaking views of Tuscany, and/or feel the true hospitality of Italian culture. Our guide, Daniele, was fantastic. He is so knowledgeable and adapted the tour to our interests and requests. The tour lasted just over 9 hours from pick up to drop off and we visited 3 wineries, the town of Montapulcino, and a beautiful abbey. Each winery offered a different atmosphere and history, which I felt really enriched our experience. Our lunch with Simone and Lucia at the second winery was fantastic and so delicious. I have done other wine tours around Siena and this one was definitely the best -- I would do it again or recommend to friends in a heartbeat.

The experience was as advertised, intimate, insightful and tasteful. We saw three small wineries and an Abby while Daniele passionately shared his knowledge. Our three course lunch was delightful, overlooking the Montalcino countryside. We also saw fist hand efforts to harvest the grapes at day’s end. Overall, this was a wonderful way to experience Tuscany. Highly recommend!

We had a terrific time on our tour and Danny was an amazing guide - full of information about the region and the wineries. We all appreciated going to the smaller boutique wineries. We loved the lunch that was prepared for us at our 2nd stop as well as the time we had to explore Montalcino and the monastery.

Highly recommend this lovely day tour! Our guide Daniele was very knowledgeable and passionate and made us discover three handpicked wineries. Each of them was different so that we were able to get insights into different approaches and philosophies. The absolute highlight for me was the homemade lunch with local specialities and the accompanying wines at a small family run winery. The hosts made us feel at home and the food was amazing. Furthermore, I also liked the pace of the tour. We were never rushed and were given as much time as we needed at each stop. This tour was definitely a highlight of my stay in Siena.
