A beautiful private excursion driving through the sweet rolling hills of Val d’Orcia arriving in Montalcino where one of the most famous Italian wine, Brunello, is produced. Your guide is Alessandro, a native of Montalcino, whose family is involved in wine business: they own an Enoteca Italian name for a wine shop downtown Montalcino.
He will pick you up at 10.00 am at your accommodation and transfer to the first winery.
During the day you will visit at least three wineries, taste red wines and Brunello di Montalcino of various vintages, taste dessert wines and have light lunch in a cellar.
Our favourite wineries are: Stella di Campalto, Mastrojanni, Le Ragnaie, Fuligni, Poggio di Sotto, Corte Pavone, Castello di Argiano, Ciacci Piccolomini, Poggio Antico, Castello Banfi, Cupano, Biondi Santi – the brunello inventor. Some of them produce top quality brunello and rosso in organic way and also biodynamic wine.
You will have time for sightsee: historical centre is dominated by a medieval fortress “la Rocca”, from its walls you can admire the nature and landscape of the Val d’Orcia area, the Crete Senesi and the hills of Maremma, and not-to-be-missed Sant’ Antimo Abbey outside the town.
You will finish the day at Enoteca in town with 400 different labels, mostly Tuscan wines. Learn about the most famous Supertuscan wines! Alessandro will make you taste some more Brunello di Montalcino.
