My daughter and I spent a day with Select Wine Tasting and could not have had a more enjoyable experience. We learned a great deal, tasted wonderful wines, and felt welcomed at each vineyard and tasting room. It was the highlight of an extraordinary visit to both Tuscany and Rome. I fully intend to reach out to Alexandra again when next we visit as I know there is so much more to explore.

Our experience with Select Wine Tasting and Alexandra was absolutely amazing. Every detail was well planned from the transportation, to the wine tours themselves, to the delicious farm to table lunch we had. Alexandra is an expert in Tuscan wines and we learned so much from both her and the owners of the wineries we visited. She curated a nice range of wineries from small to large for our visits and each place was unique with wonderful wines. I highly recommend a Select Wind Tasting tour on your next trip to Tuscany!

We had a superb full day tour with Alexandra. She selected three family-run wineries spanning many generations enabling us to explore Montalcino wine and understand the differences in the aroma/taste due to the varying terrain (the terroir), microclimate and winemakers own style. It was a unique experience to meet with each of the owners and to see their passion for winemaking. I felt a particular collection with the final winery of the day “Pombaia”. Francesco’s passion for the earth and wine was evident and it will always be something I remember. Our day included a delicious lunch during which Alexandra guided us on how to pair wine effectively with food. We came away both enlightened and excited to develop our appreciation of wine. I have been lucky to go on a number of wine tours which I have always enjoyed but our day with Alexandra has given us so much more knowledge that we can take with us. Whilst some reviews reference the cost I feel this was great value for an investment in myself benefitting both my heart and mind!

As the first reviewer to not give a five star rating I feel I must justify my decision by agreeing that this is certainly a full day spent listening to Alexandra and learning about the serious subjects of wine making and pairing but at €800 for a group of four it was an expensive experience. By the third winery it was apparent that my group was struggling to be enthusiastic about any of the wines and we were surprised to be left sitting rather uncomfortably in Alexandra’s car while she conversed at length with the wine maker elsewhere. I have perhaps been spoilt by earlier excellent wine tours with Viaggi dAmbra in Chianti - sampling DOC and DOCG wines during a fun and informative day whilst enjoying first class food in beautiful surroundings for half the price.

Had a really fantastic day out with Alexandra visiting Podere Le Ripi and Castello Tricerchi, the choice of which was excellent. I was thoroughly impressed by her knowledge and passion as a sommelier. We learned a lot during the day while it was fun, authentic and balanced. It is hard to imagine a better tour guide and collaborative teacher, personally, I would not look elsewhere on my next trip. And so I look forward to my next wine tasting tour supported by kind and friendly Alexandra.
