Brunello di Montalcino is one of the most famous and evocative names for wine collectors, and this Tuscan village itself is a sheer delight to visit.

Your private chauffeur and luxurious Mercedes will collect you at your hotel in Florence or Siena in the morning. You will transfer through the stunning Tuscan countryside, enjoying the idyllic rolling hills, medieval towns, and cypress-lined roads.
First up is a private and exceptional visit to a top winery in Montalcino, such as the mythical Casato Prime Donne estate. Your hosts will greet you warmly, and you will visit the beautiful cellar, enjoy the fabulous views, and of course, taste a range of their best wines, from Rosso di Montalcino to the high-end Brunellos.
Follow a delightful visit with an intimate lunch with an outstanding panorama of Montalcino countryside and Crete Senesi. The dining experience is five-star, the food is traditional home cooked, and the experience is one to remember.
After your relaxed lunch with your charming hosts, you will take in a second private visit to a top estate in Montalcino, to a prestigious Brunello producer like Argiano, Col d’Orcia, or Mastrojanni. Taste a wide range of wines, including Riservas and noteworthy vintages, all on a private tour.
After a hard day’s wine tasting, we’ll change the pace and get a spot of culture! Visit the gorgeous Abbazia di Sant’Antimo, one of the oldest Abbeys in Italy and one shrouded in mystery.
There is a legend involving Charlemagne, the Holy Roman Emperor “Carlo Magno,” who, back in the year 800, decided to set up camp on the location where we now have the Abbey. After curing his soldiers of the plague with holy wine, he declared that an abbey is built right on that spot to glorify the miracle. Brunello producers’ propaganda? Who knows, but the Abbey is just gorgeous, and you can take in a nice digestive walk after your gourmet food and wine experience today.
Transfer back to Siena or Florence, which will conclude your day excursion of Montalcino with Cellar Tours.
