The Avignonesi wine tour was great. This is a fully organic and bio dynamic winery. Having been on many wine tours this was really the first one that spent time really explaining the growing process and the consant experimentation that they do to make the perfect wine.

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and the grounds were absolutely beautiful and so was the reception building. After the cellar tour we had an amazing lunch paired... More

Our group stopped here for a fantastic tour with a beautiful wine tasting. Nice grounds and very knowledgable staff. Leave room to pick up some bottles at the shop for later - you will be glad you did.

We were 2 couples that booked a wine tour and luncheon tasting. The morning consisted of a group tour with about 20 people followed by a luncheon. The 4 of us had our own table and were given choices of dishes and wines. The wines were all excellent but what really surprised us was their VinSanto. They refer to it... More

This winery is absolutely stunning. We did a full day here including a cooking class and a winery tour. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. Davide, our chef, is very talented, very patient, and taught us how to make terrific food. The grounds are astounding and full of history. If thinking about doing a wine tour, definitely visit Avignonesi!

We did a tour with lunch & wine tasting. The tour is really interesting and the restaurant has the most beautiful view! During the lunch you will be able to taste 4 different wines during a 4 course menu. The wines are great and the food is good!
