Brunello Wine Tour and Montalcino from Florence. On this wonderful wine tour of Tuscany, we discover the outstanding Brunello di Montalcino, one of the most famous wines in the world.
We arrive in the land of Brunello by travelling along with one of the most panoramic routes of Tuscany, crossing the Chianti region and the Siena wine area.
You can expect a very private, non-touristic experience as we venture into the culture of the region to learn about winemaking directly from the farmers.
Departing from Florence with your professional and experienced guide by car or van, you will reach the famous town of Montalcino, a medieval village surrounded by beautiful hills, famous for Brunello and Rosso di Montalcino wine located in the heart of Val d’Orcia, in the southern part of Tuscany.
The first visit to the farm includes a tasting and a guided visit to a boutique winery, where you will learn about winemaking in the area as well as the specific processes involved in making Brunello wine. Also, enjoy a visit to the ancient underground cellars where all the traditional wooden barrels used to age the wines are kept.
You will then be escorted into town for a free visit to Montalcino and its charming and scenic streets and a wonderful view of the surrounding countryside hills.
The second part of the tour will take place in a Winery which has been run by the same family since 1865. Here we will enjoy a tour of the cellars guided by the owner and a multi-course Tuscan lunch with wine tasting, usually prepared with love by the “grandmother” of the family.
Experience the real Tuscany lifestyle!
