The departure is at 9.30 a.m. from your hotel or villa in Siena and Province. We can also organize a day from Florence. We will take the south direction driving between clay rolling hills and vineyards; we will pass the Monte Amite, to stop then in Montenero. We will visit a very small extra virgin olive oil producer, where we will enjoy seeing how to make and to learn how to taste extra virgin olive oil, grasping every single perfume and aroma, sitting on a terrace overlooking one of the widest views of the Val d’Orcia area.
We will drive on among vineyards of those wineries where produce the most famous wines, the next stop is the medieval hilltop fortified town of Montalcino, here you can wander the streets and you will dine at a typical trattoria.
After lunch a short drive to one of the oldest and well known estates of the area, a vineyard and noble family that have been producing the Rosso and Brunello di Montalcino since a long time with passion. At the vineyard you will be given a tour of the cellars and of course we will taste the wines produced, picking the difference and discovering why. During the harvest, end of September, you can see the harvest and the farmers who pick the grapes by hand. The return to your hotel or villa is at around 5 p.m.
*The tour can be inverted and also customized if you prefer to visit a specific place or vineyard.
We would be glad to draft a customized itinerary for other tours in Tuscany for our customers.
