Other Tours in Tuscany
Considered to be amongst some of the very best wine in all of Italy, no trip to Tuscany is really complete without taking at least a handful of Montalcino winery tours and getting the opportunity to enjoy these amazing vintages firsthand.
It would be an almost unforgivable mistake to take advantage of tracker tours and not try one of the very best types of wine made in the Tuscan region, the Brunello di Montalcino wine.
All of the wine that you are going to encounter on these Montalcino winery tours are going to have been aged at least 2 years, and are created entirely out of the Sangiovese grape – a grape responsible for producing some of the boldest, richest, and most elegant red wines produced in this part of the world.
Make sure that you take time to speak to as many of the independent proprietors that run the vineyards and wineries that are stops along your Montalcino winery tours, and expect to make lifelong contacts and close friends with those that you share this kind of experience with you.
We leave from the meeting point in Montalcino at 10am ( or if you prefer, we can pick you up at your accommodation! )
We can start with the visit of an historic wine cellar , from the oldest and famous of the Brunello area, where a wine expert will flourish you with details on the production and aging process of the Montalcino wines giving you a chance to interact and ask any questions along the way.
Al lunchtime we are going to visit a second cellar, where tasting with 4-5 or more different wines paring these wines with
a perfect light lunch ( note .. the concept of “light lunch” in Tuscany is not clear … Canapes, cosd cuts, “bruschettas” , and many other local dish like Ribollita and Pasta with wild boar ragu ).
In the early afternoon we can visit the town of Montalcino having a little shopping time and why not a good “gelato”.
In the afternoon, visit of a third wine cellar, this time it will be a small family run winery, so you can see the difference between a famous ad established brand winery and a little one where you can meet the producers in person. Again you will have a tour of the winery and sample
4-5 or more different wines.
