Fantastic Brunellos!
Nov 2019 • Couples
Wonderful modern tasting room with multiple tasting selections. We selected the 4 tastings which included Brunellos and Super Tuscans which were exceptional. Melinda was fabulous. They will arrange to ship items back to the US. They have a beautiful outdoor space with excellent views.

Superb Wine
Sep 2019
Most people will visit Banfi and Poggio Antico is just down the road and is, in my opinion, a much better stop. I work at a winery and drink a lot of different wines and these are definitely top shelf. They are not inexpensive nor should they be; having said that, their Madre wine is very reasonable and will drink well with any number of main courses or appetizers. This was three weeks ago but I think the bottle was around 25euro.
I noticed a few negative reviews and these were mostly a few years ago regarding the tasting room/facilities. The tasting area is nice, fresh and new. Poggio Antico was bought a couple of years ago and it is very evident the new ownership is very aware of negative reviews and is working hard to make visitor's enjoyable experiences a priority.
Nicolette was our server and she is very knowledgeable and speaks very good English. I did not order a case of wine at that time (9/8/19) but I am in the process of doing so at this time. I wait until I visited several wineries before I decide on which wines to buy. As others have mentioned, the grounds and view are really nice.
Highly recommended.

Excellent wine tour
Sep 2019 • Couples
The grounds are absolutely beautiful, situated up in the hills near Montalcino. Our guide was extremely knowledgable, informative and very passionate about the wines on offer. The tour itself was interesting and clearly explained and we opted for a 5 wine tasting at the end, which we were allowed to share between two people. We sampled classic Brunello wine and even a Riserva, making this tour great value when compared to some other wineries in the area. We loved the wine so much we decided to buy a couple of bottles to take home with us!

Somewhat expensive. Even if you buy a bottle of wine, they charge you for the tastings. Each tasting of a single wine can range from 5-8 euros. The Brunello Riserva is excellent. We bought 1 bottle. They are unforgiving on their prices.

Beautiful vineyards with an excellent tour
Jul 2019 • Friends
I visited Poggio Antico with friends for a tour and tasting and we were very happy with our experience! The tour itself is free although I assume you’re expected to partake in a tasting afterwards. There is the option to taste 3-6 different wines and they allow you to share the tastings. Therefore, splitting a 6-wine tasting between two is probably better than 2 3-wine tastings as you’ll get to sample a wide range of wines. Our guide was very knowledgeable and allowed us to try the wines at our own pace! The wine itself is not too bad itself either..! Highly recommended!

Excellent wine tour and tasting
Jul 2019 • Family
Fascinating wine tour, fabulous wines. Our group ranged from infrequent/casual wine drinkers to a chef/wine-lover, and we all enjoyed the tour. I learned so much about how wines are made. Thanks to Nicoleta for being such an excellent tour guide and wine tasting host!

Great experience and amazing wine!
Oct 2018 • Couples
The winery property is beautiful. We had a great experience with the tasting and tour, which was in English. Our guide was knowledgeable and we learned a lot about the production of brunello. I would highly recommend making a reservation in advance. You can also order wine and ship it back to the US and many other countries!

Gastronomic and Oenologic Symphony
Oct 2018 • Couples
I reserved the €20/each wine tasting and cellar tour, followed by dinner, for my wife’s and my 10 year wedding anniversary. I could not have chosen a better event or place for this special occasion.

There were only three other couples in our group so we got very personal service. Our cellar tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and able to answer every question about the estate, the wines and the wine production. PA is a very modern winery compared to some in the Montalcino area.

After the tour, we were all ushered into the special tasting room that was only big enough for the 8 of us. It was a very intimate space designed to enhance the wine tasting experience. Inside that small space, in addition to the wines, was an incredible historical retrospective of the attention to detail imposed by the owners on the viticultural and oenological processes to bring world-renowned Brunello di Montalcino to market. Simply being in the room enhances your senses in preparation for the experience to come. We tasted some incredible wines but the best was yet to come.

The tour was followed by a private dinner of unimaginable gastronomic hedonism. There were only three couples at dinner so again the service was almost like having your own personal chef and wait staff. Every course was prepared impeccably and presented with panache. My wife and I were so impressed we asked the chef to sign one of the menus to frame and put on our dining room wall back home, with may others that already adorn the wall.

Whether you're there for a special occasion or traditional visit, nothing is ordinary about Poggio Antico. They will ensure that you are treated like a celebrity and leave with fond memories. I highly recommend PA if you are within a two hour drive of Montalcino. Buon Appetito!
