Itinerary
Begin your day trip with pickup in central Siena. Meet your guide and hop aboard your minivan, setting off toward Montalcino.

Travel into the Tuscan hills and stop first at a small winery for a walk among the vineyards. Swirl and sip the famous Brunello di Montalcino, and check out the cellars with your guide.

Next, arrive in the town of Montalcino, the region’s namesake. Soak up some free time to roam the area independently, enjoying the views of the valley below, perusing the shops or tasting more of the celebrated Brunello wines.

Afterward, journey to a family-run winery, where you’ll meet the winemakers. Delve into some of the region’s culinary favorites with a lunch of antipasti, pasta or risotto and dessert, complemented by delicious local wines.

Appetites sated, continue to the ancient Benedictine abbey of Sant'Antimo. Learn about the stunning structure’s history as you follow your guide inside. On occasion, visitors will hear the monks singing Gregorian chants while taking in the scenery.

Top off your trip with a visit to a third winery for a fascinating lesson on production, the aging process and more. Take a seat for a final tasting before returning to Siena.

Most amazing tour we have ever taken

Daniele was the best wine tour guide we have ever experienced. He was knowledgeable and outgoing. The wine at both stops was so good we bought cases to ship home. I would recommend this wine tour to anyone who loves Brunello wine. Nancy

Great day

We normally do private tours for our small group but decided to try the small group experience and had a great time. The other 2 couples were fun and our guide, Mare, was very informative. The vineyards were all great, especially Podere el Ripi.
