Small group Brunello di Montalcino wine tour from Siena
Visit three Brunello wineries, the hamlet of Montalcino and the Abbey of Sant'Antimo

Brunello di Montalcino is a collectors’ favorite! Visit the cellars where they are aged, meet and have lunch with the producers and learn about the production processes and passions behind these wines. But there's more, you'll explore the the hill town of Montalcino and admire the Abbey of Sant'Antimo.

You'll meet your guide in front of the church of San Domenico in Siena at 9:30am, easy to find even if you are arriving from out of town with your own car, as there is a parking nearby.

You'll travel south along the Roman Cassia ancient road to reach the famous wine hill of Montalcino. Enjoy a first stop at a small winery, walk along the rows of vines, explore the cellars and learn about the different barrels that can be used to make their 5-year old, prestigious wine. Get ready to enjoy an introductory tasting of the famous Rosso and Brunello di Montalcino wine and then visit the hill town of Montalcino, marveling at the fortress walls where the brave soldiers of the Republic of Siena made their last stand against Florence. Spend some time in the hamlet visiting stores and enjoying the incredible views overlooking the valleys.

Later on, you'll be welcomed into a family-run winery. Meet its owners, winemakers or workers and take a visit around the farm before sitting down to enjoy a traditional Tuscan meal accompanied by the farm's delicious wines.

After lunch, enjoy a brief visit to the mystical Abbey of Sant'Antimo, a church that was once part of a large Benedictine monastery. Enjoy a walk around immersed in peace and tranquility. Then you can visit to a third winery, where we'll deepen our knowledge of the wine making processes. Explore the different aging barrels always made of oak, where the Brunello wine must age in.

Finally, sit down for another tasting of this famous wine to enjoy its persistent flavors.
