aWine tour Tuscany Countryside - Full day tour (9 Hrs)

The tour has been designed for guests who have already seen the famous attractions and beauties of Florence and Pisa and are looking for a truly wonderful and exceptional excursion, wanting to know information about viticulture and the wine making process, or the novice wanting to learn how to taste and appreciate quality wines.

We will provide a tour which will be entertaining, informative and funny.


The stops are:
Montalcino, Montepulciano and Siena.

Montepulciano was a central part of the history of this region from the Middle Ages through the Renaissance, when it was once a major trade center. Today it is famous throughout the world for its red wine (Vino Nobile).

From Montepulciano, the tour proceeds towards the splendid
town of Montalcino, owes its name to the Holm-oaks (ilex in Latin), which surrounds this hilly area. The stronghold of Montalcino has always been of capital importance due to the town’s strategic position on top of a hill. Wine characterised Montalcino’s culture and history, which actually is the country of Brunello.

The country exclusively produces this wine from
Sangiovese Grosso vines (100%). The average production, depending on the season, reaches almost 8.000.000 bottles yearly. A ruby color, a typical scent, a dry, lightly tannic taste stand as its major, successful features.

Then we will drive you to
Siena, medieval architecture and towers that still mark out time. In this city the vicissitudes of fearless knights can be relived: you seem to catch a glimpse of them in the characteristic alleyways that give Siena its proud and elegant aspect.

The shell-shaped
Piazza del Campo, where the historical Palio is held, involving all of the cities districts, is one of the most important Italian Medieval stages. Its nine grey stone sectors are a melody of volumes and spaces, armonised in the fifteenth century by the Fonte Gaia: a rectangular fountain basin made by Jacopo della Quercia and.....
