FAQ – Montalcino Wine Tours

Is Montalcino worth a visit?

Montalcino is a great choice to visit for every nature and wine lover! Perched on a hill in Val d'Orcia part of Tuscany, it's full of natural scenic beauty, historic architecture, and delicious wines! You can visit Montalcino on a full-day tour or stay for a couple of days, enjoy a wine-tasting tour, discover its rich history, and take advantage of a peaceful getaway.

What season is best for wine tours?

Autumn is considered the best season for wine tours. During this time, you can witness the grape harvest and learn Brunello di Montalcino's winemaking process in action. Make sure to book your accommodation in advance as it can get busy during this period. However, doing a wine tour is a fantastic experience regardless of the season, so it really depends on your preferences. If you're looking for nice weather and blooming fields, spring is the season for you. Just keep in mind that the weather can be unpredictable. Summer is great for outdoor activities, but be prepared for high temperatures and crowds. In contrast, if you're looking for a quieter and more intimate experience, visit Montalcino during the wintertime. Keep in mind to check the winery's opening hours as they may be reduced during the off-season time.

Do I have to be a wine expert for a tour?

Of course you don't have to be a wine expert to enjoy a wine-tasting experience. All you need to know is — to drink wine. Our wine experts are here to provide information about the wines you're tasting and teach you about the winemaking process and the winery's history. They will guide you through the wine-tasting process and provide insights about the aromas and notes dominating that particular wine. If you have some wine knowledge, this experience will enhance your appreciation of the tour and the wines. If not, guided wine tasting is the best way to enter and enjoy the world of wine!

What other wine tours should I do while in Tuscany?

Your Tuscany journey is only complete with a Chianti wine tour, as that's the most famous wine in Italy! Enjoy a wine tasting, lunch, and beautiful scenery with a San Gimignano wine tour, and continue your exploration of the less-known wines with a Lucca wine tour. Try typical Bolgeri blends with a Bolgheri wine tour! For a unique experience, take part in the Truffle hunting Tuscany!

Fantastic time!

This Brunello winery is incredible! From the entrance to the vineyard, we were left speechless! Our guide explained the harvest and winemaking in detail and answered all of our questions regarding the wine-producing process as we needed to get more familiar with it. We had some great wine in the tasting room paired with the best food I've ever tasted! I highly recommend it!

Excellent!

Our family had an amazing time on the Montalcino wine tour! There were only six of us at the end, so we felt as if it was a private tour! We've enjoyed the stunning countryside and the winery without feeling rushed. We had both Signature and Brunello wine-tasting options, so we tasted them all and had some shipped home! 10/10 experience!
