My wife and I were priviledged to have been able to spent 3 days with Donatella touring the Tuscany region. Her associate picked us up in Rome and we met her in Orvetio, where we had an amazing lunch and walk. We then were off to Civita di Bagnoregio and then to Cortona. DAY 2 a walk in Montepulcinao, tasting on an Organic cheese farm in Pienza with a breath taking panorama, two Brunello wineries for tastings of wine and olive oils (1 organic), An amazing meal on an organic farm in Montalcino, Abbazia di Sant'Antimoino, and a drop off in Siena, Day 3, 2 wine tastings in chianti, a lunch on an organic farm ( as spectacular as the day before), San Gimignano, a walk in Certaldo and a drop off in Florence, as well as a few other stops I may have missed.
She is as knowledgable as she is wonderful. She never tired of our questions and was a fabulous host and and very proud Tuscany native. Donatella treated us like family and made our trip better than we could have ever asked for.

Donatello was fantastic. Her knowledge of the wine regions of Tuscany, contacts with over 100 vintners, ability to access small production brunello and other top regional producers, customer service, humor, and demeanor made our trip. This was one of the top days we spent in Tuscany with nearly 8 bottles of terrific wine for the four of us on the tour and a fantastic home cooked Italian meal at a winery. It could not have been any better unless we were able to spend more than a day with Donatello. Bravo.

We enjoyed a great day with Donatella touring 3 vineyards and having a very enjoyable lunch with italian friends. It was a very special day and we would strongly recommend Donatella to anybody wanting a very experienced guide for Siena.

I would highly recommend "Wine Tour in Tuscany" led by an Italian sommelier, Donatella, as your wine guide in the Tuscany region. She took us through the San Gimignano and Chianti wine regions to small private vineyards/agriturismos with great wine, food, people, and best of all views of the rolling Tuscan hills. She had a vast knowledge of the \areas we were visiting and we best of all we didn't have to worry about the logistics of touring (i.e. transportation, making appointments, shipping the wine). I would highly recommend this tour and would definitely contact Donatella again for future visits.

6 of us booked this tour after reading all the reviews on tripadvisor and was not disappointed.

We were heading to Florence from Rome and wanted a wine tour on the way.
We were picked up in Rome at our apartment and drove to Sienna with one stop. Thru out the drive we were given all kinds of fabulous information regarding Rome/Italy/Sienna/wine and cheese. Donatella is extremely informative re wine -at the expert and novice level.

We toured Siena (which is a must see) and then went for lunch at her friends home for some of the best food we had in Italy. A wondferful couple/family hosted our meal and kept us entertained with information re thier life in Tuscany.

From there we went to an Organic winery for some of the best wine I have had.
Then off to Florence.
Thank you Donatella for a memerable experience and one of the best days we spent in Italy
