Half day immersive Brunello di Montalcino wine tour: discover the entire production protocol from the fields to the cellar
Our private Half-Day Brunello Wine Tour includes visiting 2 different wineries in a row in the area of Montalcino focusing just on wine. If you are tempted to learn more about this famous Italian wine, this tour will give you the basic tools to approach it.
You can schedule this tour on the day of your arrival in or departure from Montalcino as we are able to reserve just half day: the morning or the afternoon for you.
We will start for the Half Day Brunello Wine Tour in the morning around 10 am or, if you prefer, in the early afternoon at 2 pm. Our English-speaking driver guide will pick you up directly at your accommodation in a luxury and very comfortable Mercedes Benz vehicle. On board, free water and wi-fi internet connection will always be available.
During the drive to the first vineyard, your guide will introduce you to the territory, its history, and its winemaking tradition.
At the first winery, you will have a private tour where you will meet the owner or one of the staff, a wine expert who will guide you throughout the property: vineyards, facilities, aging cellar. At the end of the tour, we will have our own area reserved for the tasting, usually with a view.
Here you will taste 2-5 wines (it also depends on the size of the estate) guided by the owner or by an expert like the sommelier who will tell the story of these wines, their characteristics, and best pairings. If necessary, your guide will also briefly introduce you to the correct way to taste wines and explain how the Italian system of denominations works.
Later, we will tour another great Brunello producer where we will have the possibility to visit the olive grove and taste his extra virgin olive oil in addition to his wines.
On the tour, you will have the possibility to buy wine directly at the estates at the most reasonable price. We also provide the service to ship the bottles directly to your home. We will take care of your wine by storing it in a refrigerated depository until you are back at home to receive it.
At the end of the tour we will transfer you back to your accommodation around lunch time.
