My husband and I participated in several wine tasting, pairing, blind tasting and vineyard tours through the Tuscan Wine School and Tuscan Escapes. What an amazing group of dedicated, experienced, knowledgeable and fun people! They have a true passion for wi e, sharing their knowledge so that we actually earned how to describe what we like (& don't like), how to enjoy wine with and without food, the process to make/export/distribute wine and so much more. Our tours (Brunello and Monteriggioni hike) were among the best we have ever done! We love Georgia! She is a walking encyclopedia of all things Siena history/culture and an ability to really teach about wine. She will answer any question,, find a solution to every problem, challenge you to learn, and make sure you enjoying! She is a pleasure! We could listen to Daniele talk about all things wine all day long! He knows everything from the agriculture of each variety to how to describe to what makes a wine exceptional in a relatable but passion-filled way, & can drive a van to the most beautiful places you will ever see. Mauritsio shared wine in a small tasting room in Monteriggioni and paired it with so many wonderful flavors, we loved every minute. He recommended the place next door for lunch and joined us to drink more wine and made an unforgettable day!

We learned a lot about the different wines from an expert and got to taste not just amazing wine but also delicious food.

We spontaneously booked the Savor Siena tour (which was no problem, they where really helpful eventhough we booked last minute) and it was a great tour. We started with a wine tasting together with some cold cuts and cheeses. After that we went out on a tour of the town where Giorgia told us about the exciting history of Siena. After the tour we ended with some sweets and a great sweet wine. We can highly recommend this tour, everything about it was great and we also learned a lot. Giorgia was a great tour guide and you could really tell she has a lot of knowledge about the history of Siena and about the local wines, her passion was really inspiring and we loved her!

As this is a wine bar and not a restaurant - as the owner made very clear to us - we sat down at one of the available tables outside. As no one was around to take any order, I went inside and found the owner behind her computer. She looked at me quizzically and I the told her we would like to order some wine and a little bite. Her reaction amazed me: she told me that maybe where I am from this is a habit, but in Italy you first come in to ask if there is a table available. Even if this were the case, I was flabbergasted by this demeaning and unpleasant attitude. While I am fluent in Italian the owner kept talking to me in English. My husband and I sat next to each other, which evoked another reprimand: this way we were occupying two tables. As the place was almost closing, this was not a problem at all, but apparently she had to make her point. After we finished our cheese and wine, the owner sat down having a coffee with one of her neighbors. There were no more tables occupied at that time. Eventually she cleared our table. The wine the owner recommended was nice, but she was very unwelcoming and unpleasant, without any good reason. We won't ever go back here.

Am I am back in my home office after a wonderful long weekend in the heart Tuscany, Siena. Last Friday (02/07), by luck, call it being in the right place at the right time with a helping of spontaneity, I joined the "Brunello Wine Tour" offered by the Tuscan Wine School. Already the drive down from Siena to Montalcino was a great learning experience, as our guide, Giorgia, was a fountain of knowledge about the wine and the history of the region. After a short stop and espresso in Montalcino, the capital of the "Brunello"-wine, we were taken to taste the wines of three different vineyards. The first bio-dynamic, with a specialty of bonsai-vines, to achieve faster, deeper roots. The second organic, where were invited into the winemakers home for lunch enjoying his great wines with Pici (typical regional pasta) and Panna Cota. The third, a larger vineyard with a novelty for me: Rossato, which I had never tasted before in Tuscany. We started at 9:30am in the morning and arrived back in Siena at around 6:30pm, happy, more knowledgable about and respect for the winemaking process in challenging terrain, which makes the wine all the better. For someone who has done wine tours in the past, this was ***** cinque stelle (five stars) and I can recommend to everyone who loves wine (and everyone who wants to learn). PS: And the joy of that day will continue, because I ordered some wines from two of the three cellars which should arrive in the next couple of weeks.
