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.

Beautiful tour inside this historic cellar located in the heart of Montepulciano. Ron gave a nice, engaging tour, and made us discover the history of this beautiful (and small) winery. We continued with tastings of 6 wines and a platter. Experience absolutely to be recommended for those who pass through these areas.
