    Wine Tour in Italy

date

If I wish to buy wine, will the wineries accept credit cards?
Yes all the wineries get credit cards. Be sure to notify your credit card company when traveling abroad as they sometimes block cards when charges are made from other countries.
Can I pay at the time of the tour?
A credit card is always required to confirm your tour, and cash payment in Euro (not US Dollars) may only be made by prior arrangement before the tour begins. If you are interested in paying cash, please let us know.
I am wondering if you know any wineries where I can taste and purchase wine where they will send it back to US for me. I would like to pick up a case or two and not have to worry about carrying the wine to and from the airport.
You will find some wineries that are well organized to do that service, but the big problem is the cost of shipping and the custom fee you are subject to pay in USA. Unless you are not going to buy a very expensive wine, I don't think it is convenient! Chianti Express is a good shipping company that give this service all over Tuscany. Here you can download their form to ship wine.
I am interested in a Brunello di Montalcino wine tour, however, there is only two of us. Is there any interest among other visitors to combine a tour with us to reduce the cost?
Of course, if you wish to make more affordable your wine experience you should take my Montalcino shared wine tour which starts from Florence at 9.00 a.m. and Siena at 10:10 a.m every Tuesdays.
What should we bring with us?
Bring heavy training shoes to be comfortable during the winery and vineyard visit.
How long is the drive?
For the Chianti wine tour is about 45 min. For the Montalcino wine tour is nearly 2 hours.
Where do we meet?
For "shared tours" our meeting point is at Piazza Cavalleggeri in front of the National Library, Florence. We pick you up with one of our mini-vans, (8 people max). For "private tours" we can arrange to pick you up at your hotel or private apartment.
There's only two of us, are you going to put us in a car with other people?
If you decide to book a wine private tour, you will have your own private car or minivan, and I will plan a day tour according your specific request. Otherwise you can decide to share the tour with other wine lovers (max 8 participants). These are my shared wine tours.
