The facilities and winery are beautiful, but it comes with a price. We felt the wines and tasting were overpriced. The wines were fine, but nothing exceptional. They offered us another glass of wine on top of the tasting, and we accepted, thinking it was free. We were surprised to see that they charged €10 for each glass. We’d been to numerous other vineyards and preferred the less touristy ones with a more intimate feel and reasonable pricing.

Before arriving to Avignonesi I had no idea how amazing our tour and tasting would be. We were greeted with amazing views for our tour. Our guide was so informative and a delight! Then we were given a private tasting with a complement of a variety of meats and cheeses. Not only did we walk away with several bottles of wine to enjoy later but we are looking forward to our shipment that will arrive soon.

Our culinary group arrived at Avignonesi and was warmly greeted by the manager and our tour guide, Oscar. The history and mission of the winery was explained to us! Everyone was impressed by their commitment to the environment, sustainability, concern for their workers, and of course the satisfaction of the consumer. Then Oscar took us on a complete tour of the facilities, including the wine cellars, production facilities, kitchen where fresh duck was roasting on a one of a kind spit, and so much more! Following this wonderfully informative tour by Oscar, who completely answered all of our questions we sat down for what arguably was the most enjoyable lunch of our two weeks in Tuscany!
Chef Luca Biancucci's commitment to seasonal organic and locally sourced ingredients is not unusual in Tuscany but the perfect portioning, elegant presentations, splendid cuisine paired with Avignonesi's finest wines was just "out of this world" as Constant Companion wrote in her journal! Our menu included: Maltagliati pasta handmade in house from their own spelt flour accompanied by wlld boar ragu cooked in white wine and black olives. This was paired with tastings of Avignonesi's Marzocco Chardonnay Toscana IGT and La Tonda Sangiovese Toscana IGT. The secondo was the spit roasted duck seasoned with wild fennel, pan seared roasted potatoes and salad from their own garden accompanied by Avignonesi's 50 & 50 Toscana IGT. The dolce was a trio of bigne(hazelnut, pistachio, and lemongrass) along with Occhio di Pernice Vin Santo di Montelpulciano DOC. Needless to say, this was heavenly and afterward many of us visited their shop to send home some of the above wines which are not available in the states!

Today we visited Avignonesi and as every year we bought vine for 600 Euro. We were told we should pay for 2 tastings. It was very disappointing not to get a small present (bottle of vine or an apron for example or something else like the years before). As customers for many years this is very disappointing

We booked a wine tasting at Avignonesi since we had tasted this wine before and enjoyed it. We tasted 4 wines (20 €) among which an interesting rosé and two red wines. Very friendly athmosphere. It is worth it if you enjoy wines.

My wife and I spent one week in Tuscany in September and visited Avignonesi for their Grand Experience. The young lady who guided our tour was very informative and the tour just the right length. Lunch was wonderful in a beautiful setting. Not inexpensive but worth it. This is a classy organization.

As a side note, as Americans we were warmly welcomed throughout our visit in Italy. It is a great time to visit!

Beautiful winery, with an amazing lunch and tasting. Wonderful to hear all they are doing to produce their wines in a sustainable manner. We did The Grand Experience, 5 courses with pairing. Education tour and fabulous, relaxing lunch.

Visited for a wine tour and tasting. It was wonderful experience. The lady who took our tour was clearly passionate about the wine, techniques and history and was very knowledgeable. We enjoyed the wine and the olive oil. They also give an option for lunch which we did not take. And you can also buy wines and olive oil.

Over the years we have visited several wineries in Tuscany. This one is set in a lovely location looking out towards Montepulciano. We took the wine tour and lunch option costing 95 Euro / person.
The tour of the vineyard and cellars was very interesting and the guide presented their set-up and philosophy very well in excellent English.
This is a relatively small organic and biodynamic vineyard. As such it focuses on environment and quality of the product. The tour lasted 1 hour and then we were taken to a lovely terrace looking out over the valley where we had a 4 course lunch accompanied by a selection of their wines.
The staff are very friendly and the standard of service is very good, however we have eaten better quality local dishes at restaurants of a similar standing for much lower prices. The wine is very good but again in our opinion based on other vineyard tasting tours not warranting the high price tag. We found one of the wines, Avignonesi Vino Nobile Di Montepulciano 2012, offered cheaper in the Coop supermercato which is unacceptable given we would expect discount prices direct from the producer.
All in all a pleasant afternoon but for 190 Euros for 2 people this is an expensive lunch out. As comparison we ate a fantastic lunch with wine at a quality restaurant in Orvieto for 65 Euros (see review of Al Pozzo Etrusco).
