What people are saying about Montepulciano

Piaggio (sorry for spelling your name wrongly) was a great driver and Luciano was a wonderful guide who explained everything very clearly and was very patient with questions. The wine stop was very good and there is a long history attached to it. We had just enough time in Pienza and Montepulciano and the bus was very comfortable. Highly recommended.

We enjoyed a delicious lunch and wine tasting thanks to the lovely host. The wines were incredible and the lunch very yummy. The tour was short and sweet, consisting of a short journey into the wine cellar. Most of the experience is based around the lunch and wine tasting. Overall, super lovely and would recommend to those visiting Montepulciano.

Excellent English speaking guide who valued the ancient history of the newly founded (7 years) winery De’ Ricci. The wine was fantastic and served “ gluten free” ( only for me) antipasto

We had an incredible day visiting tree gorgeous towns. Serena the guide was very patience and lovable, explained very well and and also Mario the driver was very nice.

Fantastic trip! Beautiful location, great wine, and a fantastic tour guide, Claudia. Highly recommend.
