What people are saying about Montepulciano

The wine tour was one of the best we have had in a trip full of great experiences. Our Sommelier, Nicola was wonderful, extremely knowledgeable and really took his time giving us a deeper understanding and appreciation of the wines. We could not have enjoyed it more. The wine cellar was spectacular some of which dates to antiquity. The wines we fabulous. I would highly recommend this tour.

This wine tour was very fun and educational. We did not have a car so booked a driver with the tour. He was very good. We visited both Bindella Winery and Manvi Winery. They are very different but both so fun to tour. The views of the vineyards and Tuscan scenery are beautiful beyond words. I would recommend this tour to all wine drinkers at any level of experience with wines.

We enjoyed a delicious lunch and wine tasting thanks to the lovely host. The wines were incredible and the lunch very yummy. The tour was short and sweet, consisting of a short journey into the wine cellar. Most of the experience is based around the lunch and wine tasting. Overall, super lovely and would recommend to those visiting Montepulciano.
