“The best wine tour for Piedmont and Tuscany”
Review of Wine Link Italy

Attraction details
Reviewed July 23, 2013

I just returned from a dream wine tour in Piedmont. Barbara D'Agapiti the founder/owner of WinelinkItaly worked with me to put together an itinerary to visit my favorite producers. Sottimano, Produttori in Barbaresco and G Rinaldi and G Mascarello in Barolo to name a few. The attention to detail, the ability to actually get access to these amazing producers, and the professionalism was outstanding. The visit to Rinaldi lasted three hours instead of one and Barbara realizing how fortunate we were to be getting such as detailed and personal tour by one of the true masters of wine, managed to anticipate the delay and still keep our remaining appointments. Early this year, I also went on a short Chianti Classico tour with Winelinkitaly at the recommendation of my travel agent. The tour started out at Montevertine that has since become my favorite Chianti producer. Needless to say the positive experience in Tuscany was followed by another superb trip to Piedmont. I would recommend Winelinkitaly to wine lovers at all levels and hope to use them again on a future wine for regions I have yet to visit.

We recently used Barbara D'Agapiti of WineLinkItaly for a tour of wineries in Umbria. Barbara was outstanding, providing a very personable and professional service. We had to make some last minute changes because of the weather and she did so seamlessly. Every winery we visited was very intimate which frequently involved sitting down with the owner to discuss their philosophies regarding wine and food. The lunch we had while on the tour was by far the best lunch of the trip and one of the best meals overall. Barbara went over and above when after the tour we needed reservations at a local restaurant. When we return to Italy she will be definitely be in our plans. www.winelinkitaly.it

We had the very good fortune of being referred to Barbara D'Agapiti, Owner/Operator of winelinkitaly, during our stay in Spoleto. We arranged in advance via email to spend an entire day with Barbara as our guide/sommelier/driver. This was one of the best decisions of our entire Italy vacation. Barbara was not only charming and knowledgeable, but she put together a diverse and fascinating winery tour day for us. She provided the transportation with a roomy van and picked us up promptly. We didn't have to worry about driving the hilly and winding roads and didn't have to chose a designated driver, everyone was able to drink and enjoy the day. We started with a very large winery in Montefalco. Moved on to a very small, exclusive winery in Bevagna. Stopped for a sumptuous lunch in Bevegna and then stopped at a mid-sized winery in Montefalco before being driven back to our villa. Barbara guided when needed but was unobtrusive when appropriate. She was our tour leader, but by the end of the day, she was our friend! Truly cannot recommend highly enough. www.winelinkitaly.it
