Here is what's in store for you

This private wine tour will allow you to discover Montalcino, a small village famous for producing Brunello wine, one of the most prestigious red wines in Tuscany.

Departing from Florence, you will drive through the stunning Tuscan countryside of South Siena for a splendid day of sightseeing and wine tasting.
Admire the breathtaking scenery while you reach Montalcino – cypress trees, fields, and livestock with extraordinary combinations of green, grey, and brown. The famous Brunello wine is produced here with the local Sangiovese grapes. Every activity in the town revolves around wine production.

Walk in Piazza del Popolo in the town center and Palazzo dei Priori nearby, a building from the 1300s. Three churches here worth a visit, built between the 13th and 15th centuries: Sant’Agostino, Sant’Egidio, and the Cathedral. From the towers of Montalcino’s large fortress, there is a splendid view of the surrounding Orcia and Arbia valleys. Beyond southern Tuscany, catch a glimpse of the beginning of the region of Latium.

Brunello wine is one of the finest and most prestigious wines produced in the whole world. Your second stop will be a typical Brunello winery, where you'll learn all about the ancient roots of the winery. Discover the history and origins of Brunello and other wines produced by the estate. Walk through vineyards and cellars. Finally, end your visit with a tasting of 2/3 wines and learn how to enjoy and appreciate excellence.

Montalcino also offers many options to taste a selection of local, traditional recipes. Delicious fresh pasta with savory sauces, wild mushrooms soup, pici pasta with meat sauce, ravioli stuffed with ricotta cheese, roasted meats, wild boar in a casserole, fresh vegetables…the list goes on!

In the solitary Valle d’Orcia is located the Abbey of Sant’Antimo, one of Italy's most beautiful Romanesque monastic monuments. Legend has it that Emperor Charlemagne founded it in 781. It is said that on their way back from Rome along the ancient road Via Francigena, most of the Emperor’s army came down with the plague. When the Emperor’s prayers were answered and the pestilence ceased, he founded the Abbey.

If desired and time allows it, after your visit to Sant’Antimo your driver can bring you to another winery for a second wine tasting paired with local products famous all over the world (An additional 40€ for a tasting of 2/3 wines).
