We had a wonderful day on our wine tour with Nadia. We wanted to experience a variety of the wine Italy has to offer so we went to both Montepulciano and Monticchiello wineries, and we stopped for a nice lunch along the way. Nadia is very knowledgeable about the wines in this region. And she shipped the wine we collected throughout the day back home for us! If I were to change anything, I may instead do two half day wine tours…8-9 of wine is a lot!

Thank you so much for the nice words. It was a pleasure for me to spend a day together discovering our great wines: Brunello di Montalcino and Nobile di Montepulciano. I hope to see you again soon and if you still want to remember the flavors of our land you can buy directly from producers on our Montalcino Official Store

We heard about this tour from our hotel Di Capitani. When we contacted Artemisia in Montalcino, they were fantastic, explaining and recommending. Great people!

Based on their recommendation, we picked the Thursday tour:

We started early in the morning at 9.00am and visited the Villa I Cipressi (9.04am): besides producing wines, the estate does also have their own beehives from which they gain not only excellent honey but also other products, for example cosmetics. It was a very pleasant experience and the son of the owner presented the vinery and the products - the Brunello had got 95 points in Winespectator. We ended the visit with complementary half a bottle of Brunello on the terrasse, waiting for the bus to come.

We boarded back on the coach at 11.05am and dropped off at Castello Banfi (11.44am), one of the most renowned wineries of this area, where you have the special entrance with the Brunello Wine Bus ticket at the Glass Museum and at the balsamic vinegar cellars - eventually you can decide to stay here also for lunch, as they have an excellent restaurant called Taverna. This is a large producer, and as we were spoiled by the personal service at Villa Cipressi, we felt a bit lost among large groups of visitors.

We boarded back on the bus after an hour and went off at Querce Bettina (1.05pm): we were really enchanted arriving there.. you pass from a wooden dirt road which suddenly opens up on this estate where the owners are sooo friendly that you will like to spend your whole day there! They do also include a tasting of the grapes jam they produce and besides using their pool you can also ask them to prepare a light lunch with typical products, which they can do very well and at very affordable rates! We went for the lunch with own produced olive oil, jam and of course wine. Roberto showed us the winery and told us the story of this rather "young" vineyard. This is absolutely worth a visit!

Finally, a bit exhausted, we boarded back on the bus at 3.34pm. We considered to return back to Montalcino, but decided for the last winery; Marchesato degli Aleramici. And what a treat! Emile and Emma welcomed us and we got a tour. Then we were showed the special selection of wines in their private wine cellar. Sitting in the cellar, surounded by the winecasks and the old bottles, we tasted the various wines the produce. A fantastic experience and wonderful wines (we bought too many to bring on the plane, but enjoyed them during the rest of the Italy trip :). We ended the day at their pool before returning back with the bus.

This was a fantastic experience and we will do it again!

I booked the 1/2 day tour with the optional farmhouse lunch via email with Nadia. I was concerned about including my credit card information in an email so we agreed that we would do a combination of fax and email. In the end it all worked out, but it would be better to be able to book these tours on a secured website.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. We did not stay within the distance to be picked up so we drove to the meeting spot in montalcino. Only issue we had was not having small denomination of euros for the parking meter. My husband had to go find the post office.

We went to 2 vineyards for tours. The first one was a very basic tour with little commentation by the young woman giving the tour. She also didn't tell us very much about the wines we were tasting. We didn't buy any wine here. The next vineyard was fantastic! The tour was given by the winemaker who was also a sommelier. He was very knowledgable about every aspect of the process. We tasted a couple of wines which were rosso di montalcino and brunellos. He went through each wine with us and we discussed the taste. We had a mixed case shipped to our home in the U.S. thoroughly enjoyed that tour and the wine.

My husband and I added the optional lunch at the farmhouse. We were the only two (out of our tour of four people) who did this. It was a bit awkward being the only 2 being served in someone's house, but they really served us and left us alone. The food was delicious and they also served a rosso and a brunello with the different courses.

Highly recommend this tour and add the lunch!

This was the third time we enjoyed this Day tour. This time we visited 4 new and different wineries around in Montalcino. We have now visited more than 10 vineyards over the years, and each has a different story to tell. You meet the people behind the dream and the very hard work. You see their pride, you hear their stories and you get the respect for what is behind the good wine from Montalcino.

Every time is a new experience, every time you understand a little bit more and every time the respect for this craftsmanship increases.

Every time I enjoy a Brunello I think of the people behind it.

We will be back - keep up this wonderful offering!

We did this tour again this year, excited as we were last year (see review below). This year it was a more set route - we visited 2 vineyards before lunch and 2 vineyards after lunch. Surprisingly, we were only 4 people on the tour this day, but that meant that we got to know each other and had a good time together.

Because of vacation period, the two vineyards before lunch were substituted with 2 others - fortunately for us since we had visited these two last year and got the chance to meet the people at these farms again.

After lunch we visited two new vineyards - both very nice.

The good things with the BWB (Brunello Wine Bus) is that you get a chance to meet the people behind the fantastic Brunello produce. You hear the story, see the passion, learn the "secrets" of good wine making.

We will be back next year!
