Guided Tour in English

Full-Day Brunello di Montalcino Wine Tour

Brunello di Montalcino is arguably one of the most esteemed wines in all of Italy.  Aged for at least five years and made entirely of the Sangiovese grape. This elegant red wine will be enjoyed most by those who appreciate wines that are bold in flavor and rich in aroma.


Highlights
  • Full-day tour with max 8 people guided by an English speaking wine expert.
  • Visit two family-run-wineries in the Montalcino wine region.
  • Lunch with Tuscan food and wine at a family-owned winery. 
  • A quick stop at the village of Montalcino.

Tour Description

Your Brunello Wine Tour begins at the central Florentine square where you will meet your English-speaking tour guide. During the trip, you will be introduced to the territory, the history, and the winemaking style of Brunello di Montalcino.
Your first stop will be in a small family-owned cellar where you will taste delicious Brunello and Rosso di Montalcino as well.
The experience starts with a walk in the vineyard accompanied by the owner who will be explaining all the secrets of Brunello viticulture.
Then is time for tasting wines, different types, and stile commented by the owner or by an expert, such as sommelier, who will help you to discover the Brunello di Montalcino red wine.
At the end of the experience, you will sit down at the small dining room to enjoy a traditional Tuscan meal accompanied by the delicious wines produced there.
An afternoon visit to another top-rated Brunello winery will complete the tour. Usually, we combine a small family-owned business winery with a larger one, just to give you a broader view of what Montalcino and its wines have to offer.

Stop at the historic village of Montalcino

Before driving back to Florence the minivan stops at the main square of Montalcino's town. Now you could enjoy a bit of free time to stroll along the narrow streets of this typical Tuscan hill-top town. Here you may take some nice shots of a medieval fortress or you might decide to stop at the local wine shop, Enoteca Della Fortezza, in case you were looking for some special Brunello's labels.

Brunello Wine Tasting

Throughout this trip, you will have ample opportunity to enjoy the Brunello di Montalcino DOCG and Rosso di Montalcino DOC wines while also being treated to a memorable Tuscan lunch.

Recommended for...

Brunello di Montalcino is a full-body wine and produced using only Sangiovese Grosso grape. This elegant red wine will be enjoyed mostly by those who love wines that are bold in flavor and rich in aroma. The wine tour departs from a central square of Florence's city and will take about 2 hours long to get to the Montalcino wine region so we recommend having a good breakfast in the morning.
