Posted By : admin/ 114 0

Full day Brunello Wine Tour with De Gustibus tours, the best way to meet small high quality wine makers form Montalcino area.

This culinary thpour begins with a drive along one of the most beautiful and ancient roads of Tuscan
y, bypassing the city of Siena and its enchanting hills. On arrival we will get to a thermal bath, where the waters that flow naturally into this place were used since the Roman period for thermal purposes. Since the Etruscans and Romans – as evidenced by the numerous archaeological finds – thermal baths in this area were frequented by famous people such as Pope Pio II, Catherine of Siena, Lorenzo de ‘Medici and many artists who had elected the village as a place of recreation (free entrance to the site… or 15 euros entrance fee to access the swimming-pool).

After that we will have a guided tour and wine tasting at a Brunello producer.

We will visit the cellars and will learn something about the origin and production of this world-renowned wine. We will taste the wine in evolution straight from the barrel, and during the typical Tuscan lunch you will try DOCG Brunello and Rosso di Montalcino DOC. On request, we can visit the vineyards and enjoy the anecdotes and “stories” on viticulture and production narrated by the wine maker.

After lunch we will visit a Mediaval village close by and on the way back we could make an additional stop (if we have time) at a wine producer for an organic wine tasting.
