This amazing wine and food tour begins with a drive along one of the most beautiful and ancient roads of Tuscany, around the city of Siena with its rolling and enchanting hills.

On arrival we will visit the historical village of Montalcino, and continue with the visit of Abbey of Sant’Antimo, one of the most significant architectural remains of the Romanesque period. The abbey was built between the eleventh and twelfth centuries, whose magnificence is enhanced by the surrounding landscape. According to the legend, the Abbey was erected by order of Charlemagne in 781 AC.

We will continue with a guided tour of a small producer of Brunello .

We will visit the cellars and learn something about the origin and production of this world-renowned wine. We will taste the wine straight from the barrel during his evolution (DOCG Brunello and Rosso di Montalcino DOC ) accompanied by a generous typical Tuscan lunch. We can visit the vineyards and enjoy the anecdotes and ” stories ” on viticulture and production narrated by the winemaker. On our way back we will make an additional stop (if we have time) at a wine producer for an organic wine tasting.

With us you will not live an ordinary tour, we’re going to share with you a human experience and life and to “explore” the lifestyle of our country listening to those who live it. You can establish a personal relationship with the farmers and not only taste technically their products …

Visits to farms will not be just a quick stop for a glass of wine, but a real “intercultural experience“
