Small-Group Brunello di Montalcino Wine-Tasting Trip from Siena
From US$161.36
Overview
Spend a day sipping one of Italy’s top wines, Brunello di Montalcino, on this unique trip from Siena. Led by an expert guide, travel to the cellars to learn about the production process and meet the locals behind the delicious red wine. Then, pause at a family-run winery for an authentic Tuscan lunch before exploring the village of Montalcino and the abbey of Sant'Antimo. Stop for additional tastings along the way and conclude with transportation back to Siena. Group size is reserved to eight people for a more intimate experience.
What to Expect
Begin your day trip with pickup in central Siena. Meet your guide and hop aboard your minivan, setting off toward Montalcino.
Travel into the Tuscan hills and stop first at a small winery for a walk among the vineyards. Swirl and sip the famous Brunello di Montalcino, and check out the cellars with your guide.
Next, arrive in the town of Montalcino, the region’s namesake. Soak up some free time to roam the area independently, enjoying the views of the valley below, perusing the shops or tasting more of the celebrated Brunello wines.
Afterward, journey to a family-run winery, where you’ll meet the winemakers. Delve into some of the region’s culinary favorites with a lunch of antipasti, pasta or risotto and dessert, complemented by delicious local wines.
Appetites sated, continue to the ancient Benedictine abbey of Sant'Antimo. Learn about the stunning structure’s history as you follow your guide inside. On occasion, visitors will hear the monks singing Gregorian chants while taking in the scenery.
Top off your trip with a visit to a third winery for a fascinating lesson on production, the aging process and more. Take a seat for a final tasting before returning to Siena.
