Amazing way to learn about the history of Montepulciano and its wines. Our guide was excellent and the wine tastings were incredible. I highly recommend this experience.

I absolutely do not recommend you to book with getyourguide, pay to visit the wineries that normally have a free entrance, not to mention the tastings, the only positive note was the guide, very professional. I recommend that you contact the tourist office directly
