Our group of 8, spent 18 days in Italy in October, 2019. In the beginning of our adventure, we stayed 6 nights in the San Gimignano area and experienced many day trips to Florence, Pisa, Siena, San Gimignano and "My Tuscan Wine and Tours". Afterwords, we went on to Rome, the Amalfi Coast and Sicily. It was a wonderful trip, but the day I spent with Marialuisa in the Tuscan countryside with my daughter and 2 other members of our group, was one of my favorites. The 3 wineries we visited (including Marialuisa's family winery) were excellent. We tasted many spectacular wines with suggested wine pairings, toured 2 wineries and enjoyed an amazing lunch. Not only was Marialuisa extremely knowledgeable, she was an absolute joy to spend the day with. She also arranged affordable shipping of the wines we purchased from her family's Cesani Winery...eccellente! When I return to Italy, I will take the time to experience another wonderful day with "My Tuscan Wine and Tours." Marialuisa, thanks again for an amazing memory that I will cherish forever! Fino alla prossima volta!

Marialuisa was absolutely wonderful! In January some of the wineries are closed due to the holidays and winter weather. She put together a tour of food and wine of the region that was the most memorable part of our 10 day trip!
Fom 9:30 am to 6:00 pm she educated and engaged us in the Italian culture and traditions. We enjoyed a cooking class with Fulvio and tasted cheeses, pastries, meats, wine, breads and olive oil throughout the countryside outside of San Gimignano. We traveled with our 20 year old daughter and she loved it too. I can not recommend Marialuisa enough! Worth every penny in experience and memories!

Dear Nancy, what a great day we spent together! The company was great and Tuscan wine and food was an excellent pairing. I hope to meet you soon for another Tuscan wine experience! A presto! Marialuisa

We did a wine tour with Marialuisa with our good friends who recently moved to Italy. She was a very good translator (spoke excellent English), she took us to wonderful Montalcino wineries including a fantastic lunch. We highly recommend her for private tours. She is personable and very knowledgeable of the wineries in all regions of Tuscany. She's the best!

We (two couples traveling together) chose the small group three quarter day Chianti tour. Marialuisa met us on time at the appointed spot in Sienna, an easy five minute walk from our hotel. She is an excellent guide and knows the people and the area. We toured and tasted at two family owned wineries (Tenuta Mocenni and Fattoria Lornano), both accompanied with light snacks of meats and cheeses. Both hostesses were knowledgeable and very welcoming. Marialuisa also offered to ship wines we bought that day back to US (EU60 for six bottles), and yes we bought wines at both. Highly recommend her.

It is no coincidence that, in common with previous reviewers, this tour was an absolute highlight of our holiday. Marialuisa collected us from our hotel and proved to be the perfect host - her attention to detail in arranging the tour is very much appreciated. We had selected the 3/4 San Gimignano tour which comprised a party of 8. This proved to be an ideal number and our group could not have been more perfect company. Marialuisa initially took us to another local vineyard where the knowledgeable host patiently explained the whole process of wine making, followed by the opportunity to sample and be educated in respect of 4 of their wines, accompanied by a plate of tasty Tuscan food. We then moved on to Marialuisa's own lovely family vineyard, surrounded by wonderful views, were we sampled 4 of the Cesani wines, again accompanied by some more Tuscan fare. To any one who is considering booking this tour in future, our advice is don't hesitate - you won't regret it!

Our tour started with Marialouisa picking my husband and I and our travel friends, Carol and Dan, up right from our hotel in San Gimignano in a very new van! She is a very warm and wonderful tour guide. Marialouisa is very knowledgeable on the wineries and wine making in the region as she is from this area and her family has a winery. There were eight of us on the tour and I must say that as wonderful as the tour was, it was enhanced by the company. Shout out to our American friends Ally and Marlin and our British friends Susie and Peter. Marialouisa felt strongly that we should not go wine-tasting on an empty stomach, so she surprised us by first taking us to a wonderful butcher shop owned by her boyfriend. We were treated to an assortment of salamis and bread and of course a little wine. Once our bellies were prepped for wine tasting, we were taken to a mid size winery and had a tour of the premises. We learned a lot about Barolo wine and all the love, history and strict rules that goes into making a bottle of this incredible wine, and of course had an amazing wine tasting! Next Marialouisa took us for a proper Italian lunch which woke up every taste bud in my mouth! Truly one the best meals we had the entire 3 weeks in Italy ( my husband is Italian, so we KNOW good Italian food!). Next we were taken to another smaller winery and met Fabio, which I must say was really easy on the eyes! Had another amazing wine-tasting. We were then driven through the beautiful Tuscan countryside back home to San Gimignano. We would highly recommend this tour and all the positive comments are absolutely true!
Grazie Marialouisa! Sally and Marco

We visited the Tuscan hills for 4 days and Amalfi Coast for 5 and Marialuisa's tour was number one for us! There were only 6 of us on the tour which was wonderful and she picked us up right at our place, that was not easy to locate in Poggibonsi. The tour was such a great experience and so much fun. The weather that day was off an on rain and we did not even notice! We did the 2/3 day wine tour in San Gimignano and the Chianti region, but we all were asking so may questions that we really spent 2 more hours than planned and she was more than happy to accommodate. Marialuisa's passion shines through as well as her knowledge. She was so organized and everything was planned perfect. She lives and breathes wine. Her enthusiasm is just wonderful and we also learned so much about Chianti wine. We had the opportunity to visit two vineyards, one was Marialuisia's vineyard, where we tasted delicious wine and perfect assortment of meats and cheeses. She took us to a friend's restaurant and the meal was a feast! One of the best meals we had and everyone was so welcoming and friendly. There was never anyone rushing us onto the next stop. So relaxing. We hope one day to come back to Italy and bring others on this tour or try one of her other tours. Thank you so much Marialuisa! We miss you and glad we got to spend such a wonderful day with you! We look forward to the 9 bottles we had shipped home and you will be in our thoughts during every sip! :)

Four of us just spent the most fabulous week with MariaLuisa. She drove and guided us around Montepulciano, Montalcino ,Chianti and San Gimignano.

She was both a remarkable driver and guide, and her knowledge of wines, the wine making-process and Tuscan history is extensive.

We also meet some great local characters and Artisans which we would not have found without her introduction.

I 120% recommend you get in touch with MariaLuisa and go on a tour. And yes her English is excellent and she has a wonderful personality as well.

Ten stars out of five

My husband and myself took this wine tour in September on our honeymoon and we had so much fun. Marialuisa was an amazing guide. We visited three wineries in the Chianti region, and she picked us up right down the road from our B&B. We had a delicious lunch at one of the wineries, and it definitely kept us full for the day. All of the wineries were beautiful, and learning so much from Marialuisa truly made me appreciate the art of wine making. We had the best day!! Book this tour!!
