Montalcino in beautiful Southern Tuscany is the home of Brunello di Montalcino, one of Italy’s finest wines. Join Amelia Singer on our Summer wine tour to this historic hilltop fortress town for fine Tuscan food and wine in breathtaking surroundings. We will visit some of the finest Brunello producers, both large and small. Limited to a maximum of 10 guests!

Steeped in history, Montalcino, which means the “hill of oaks”, is perched atop a hill at 560m above sea level, with stunning views of the surrounding Tuscan countryside. We are delighted to announce that wine expert Amelia Singer will be joining us on this Brunello wine tour to beautiful Tuscany. Amelia is a wine consultant and educator who rose to worldwide fame over the last year while appearing in The Wine Show on television. In addition to her wine expertise, she is a really charming lady and makes the perfect travel companion.

This Brunello tour will totally capture your imagination and convert you to Brunello di Montalcino for a lifetime. The wineries we visit are all quite different, from the intimate organic winery of Cupano, to the vast estate of Banfi, but a common theme is the excellence of the fine Brunello & Super Tuscans that they all produce. I could tell you stories now about each and every one of these wineries but that would spoil the fun! I know you’ll enjoy every visit.

Our Brunello wine tour in September 2015 was very successful, and you can read an account by travel journalist and blogger English Mum here.

WINE TOUR ACCOMMODATION

When visiting Montalcino, most people wish to stay within the walls of this ancient medieval fortress town. For this reason we have chosen Il Giglio as our hotel for this Brunello wine tour, with its excellent menu and extensive wine cellar. Il Giglio is widely regarded as the best hotel within the town walls, and we love to stay there, right in the heart of things. If you would prefer to stay in one of the 5* resorts in the surrounding countryside, we can, of course, arrange this for you at extra cost. Please call or email for further details.
