Very nice experience with an excellent tour guide, Paolo. You get to see the scenery of beautiful mountainous and greenery outskirts of Rome, while Paolo narrates a brief history of Italy and its wines in an eloquent yet entertaining manner. It’s quite Romantic and light. An exquisite escape from the busy city.

So much fun!

This was one of my favorite tours during my time in Italy! It was a nice drive out of the city to the countryside; it was just great to get out of the heavy traffic and out to vineyards. I've had the tour guide, Rebecca twice, and she has to be my favorite I've had. The bus was almost an hour late, and she was very apologetic and spent time walking around getting to know the people on the tour. She is also very knowledgeable on Italy and the wine-tasting experience that day. The estate is absolutely beautiful. You get to see the wine barrels and cellars. After, a sommelier will walk you through a four-glass wine tasting. I knew nothing about wine-tasting, and I learned a lot about wine-making and how to taste wine. There is a chance to buy wine and their amazing olive oil as well at the end. Well worth the time and price!

An experience we are glad we didn’t miss.

Anna was our guide. Michelle was our sommelier. Both ladies were excellent. Anna told us all about the areas we travelled through and the wine making process. Michelle taught us how to look at wine and gain different knowledge about the one we were drinking. Antonio was the driver of our coach and we had a lovely air conditioned full sized coach so there was enough room for us to cool down on a hot day. We felt we were in very safe hands. We would recommend this tour.
