Begin your day trip with pickup in central Siena. Meet your guide and hop aboard your minivan, setting off toward Montalcino.

Travel into the Tuscan hills and stop first at a small winery for a walk among the vineyards. Swirl and sip the famous Brunello di Montalcino, and check out the cellars with your guide.

Next, arrive in the town of Montalcino, the region’s namesake. Soak up some free time to roam the area independently, enjoying the views of the valley below, perusing the shops or tasting more of the celebrated Brunello wines.

Afterward, journey to a family-run winery, where you’ll meet the winemakers. Delve into some of the region’s culinary favorites with a lunch of antipasti, pasta or risotto and dessert, complemented by delicious local wines.

Appetites sated, continue to the ancient Benedictine abbey of Sant'Antimo. Learn about the stunning structure’s history as you follow your guide inside. On occasion, visitors will hear the monks singing Gregorian chants while taking in the scenery.

Top off your trip with a visit to a third winery for a fascinating lesson on production, the aging process and more. Take a seat for a final tasting before returning to Siena.

Three Unique Vineyards/Wineries

We visited three unique vineyards that provided a great overview to the Montalcino region. The second vineyard is where we had lunch with the family running the vineyard. Really enjoyed getting to know the unique characteristics of Brunello!

We really enjoyed the tour. The guide was energetic, knowledgeable and a great driver. We felt very safe. The vineyard selection was super and the lunch at the winemakers home was an experience we will never forget...great food, wine and conversation. Thank you for a great experience.

Heavy of the sales pitch

This was supposed to be a 3 winery tasting/tour with lunch. The first winery had a great tasting and tour. The second was no winery tour, wine with lunch was poorly described by the 'host'- who was really there to push his business (not the winery), with short supply of wines. We were lectured at throughout lunch. Tasty and plentiful lunch, though. Third winery was very busy, so not much of a tasting, but really nice people and talk with the winemaker. Our driver was great, and knowledgeable, but I was expecting more wine tasting/winery tour and less lecture/sales.

Tour quality rivaled the beauty of the area!

This daytrip was a highlight of a wonderful 2-week trip with a group of friends. Our guide Giorgia was particularly helpful in accommodating us, showing the area and getting us into excellent experiences away from the throngs. We wanted to take her home with us. She arranged a lunch with a vintner and his wife that was positively spectacular. We could have spent 3 days in the area and not had as complete a visit as she provided in several hours. The area is stunningly beautiful, the wine delicious, and having a superb driver and guide was priceless.

William was exceptional. He made us feel welcome the minute we stepped aboard. Great knowledge of the area and his country’s history. His personality was exuberant and infectious. All of the vineyards had something different to offer. We highly recommend William and the wine tour he represents. Regards, The Chouinard Family - Goffstown, NH

A Fabulous Day

Of all that we saw and did in our 10-day trip to Tuscany, this was tops. We expected it to be interesting and fun, but it was also an adventure. Our driver, Amber, was terrific. She picked us up in the van and off we went into the countryside and up hills, deep into the wine-producing land and through villages. The ride is not for the infirm or faint of heart--the roads are rough and steep and you get rocked around in your seatbelt. There was an early change of plan because of a bicycle race in the area of our first vineyard stop; Amber and the other drivers punted and we were taken to a wonderful family vineyard and home for a tour and tasting on their lovely patio. Then on and up to a gorgeous hilltop vineyard for a sit-down lunch with the other van groups, 30 of us in all. Fine wines, wonderful food, amazing scenery. We were taken to yet another lovely winery and toured more of the area before being driven back into Siena. It was a long day, just great, well worth the price.

Our group of 5 friends and 2 honeymooners was the perfect size. No rushing just leisurely enjoying beautiful scenery, good food and plenty of wine to sample. A perfect day I would highly recommend!
