“A truly personalized wine tour”

Above 90 Brunello Wine Tour
Ranked #103 of 148 Food & Drink in Florence
Attraction details
Reviewed March 24, 2013

While not wine novices, our knowledge of Italian reds was minimal. With very little advance notice, Silvio put together a wonderful day blending regional history, personal insights, and visits to 4 small to moderate sized vineyards.
The vineyard owners were so warm and accommodating this will likely be the highlight of our time in the region.
No pressure to buy (but we certainly did!)...
If you want to taste a range of highly rated Brunello and break bread with the owners, Silvio will set you up and take care of you!
Thank you Silvio!

My friend and I booked a tour with Above 90 about a month before our trip to Italy. It was going to be our most expensive tour of the trip (a "splurge" if you will!) and we were very much looking forward to it. Silvio was great with his email communications and was very accommodating to make a tour that would meet our expectations.

The morning before our tasting, Silvio emailed us to confirm and we quickly responded with our confirmation. When we returned to our hotel from a day of sightseeing and checked our email to find that our tour had been cancelled. Silvio cited car troubles.

While I totally understand that the unexpected can happen, I was very disappointed that we got such short notice for our cancellation. We asked if he could rent a car or suggest other options. He gave a few suggestions but it was too late to book them.
It was very disappointing to leave Tuscany with no wine tasting experience.

I've heard nothing but good things about his tours so I still encourage you to book but I also encourage you to plan a backup option!

We spent about 10 hours with Silvio on August 27, 2009. He provided us with a personal exploration through central Tuscany that was unforgettable and incredibly memorable. Silvio is a warm, endearing, and congenial host. We explored Montalcino and enjoyed a private tour and tasting at Il Paradiso di Frassina winery followed by a private gourmet lunch in a gorgeous villa perched on a hillside. It was the highlight of our 2-week trip to Italy and we not only highly recommend Above90 but can't wait to take another journey with Silvio next time we are in Italy.
