Great and interesting wine tour, fabulous lunch and wine pairing. We have done many wine tours and almost did not do this one. Glad we did it as it was very interesting! Can't wait to get the wine we ordered.

A great wine tour, so informative and provided a great introduction to the wine tasting lunch. We were extremely impressed by the lunch. The food was delicious, the portions a great size and the wine tasting servings were very generous. We tried many wines all paired with great food. My favourite was the desert paired with Vin santo... Heaven!!! Great service with a smile and all very affordable!! Book a table on the terrace for an extra special view.

Do not miss this! The tour is fascinating and the wine tasting lunch is worth every Euro. Our tour guide was delightful and informative. As an amateur gardner, I loved hearing about the organic farming practices used in the vineyards. My husband, two young adult sons and I were served a 4 course meal by articulate and educated waiters. The wine pairings were varied and our waiters made sure we understood the different options. The olive oil is as delicious as the food and wine. It was a damp, chilly spring day so our table in front of the well-tended fire was perfect. On our trip home we all agreed that this was our favorite day in Tuscany.

In March, 2013 I returned to Avignonesi for the fourth time. Even after listening to 4 different tour guides, I learned something new each time. Each guide had their own special and interesting way of presenting the information. Twice I have eaten lunch there and both times it was amazing. I can still smell the fresh bread just out of the oven. The wine is excellent and the entire winery is innovative and a place of high integrity in the way they produce the wine and care for the land. The staff is friendly, informative and clearly very proud of their products. They have a very modern gift shop and welcoming center, beautiful spaces for wine tastings and lunch and ...fabulously clean toilettes! Since I am in charge of groups ranging in size from 6-18, this is very important! I am in Italy once or twice a year and Avignonesi is always on the itinerary.

We spent a wonderful afternoon at Avignonesi where we booked a food and wine tasting. We started with a tour of the vineyard and learned lots about the wine-making process and the history of the vineyard. Then we had a delicious three-course vegetarian lunch with wine pairing over looking the rolling hillside and the vineyards own organic herb garden.
