Full description
Embark on a fascinating journey through the wine making traditions of Tuscany on a guided cellar tour in the medieval village of Montepulciano. Famous for its noble red wines, the wine region is also notable for the use of quality wood to age the wine.

Marvel at the rows of enormous oak barrels from Slavonia, where refined Nobile di Montepulciano wines are stored alongside barrels made from quality French wood. Hear about the sandy tufa soil of the area, where fossils have been found to provide evidence of ancient origins.

Pair your wines with a selection of cheeses and cold cuts of meat, along with fresh bread and oils.

We had one guide to the pair of us which was fantastic - and he had a great knowledge of both the wine making process & the Ricci family which was fabulous. Substantial selection of meat & cheese after the tour, and the staff were very generous with the top ups. Would definitely recommend.
