Hello Rhonda

Thank you so very much for writing us.

My small group tours have to start from Siena, wich is easily reachable by bus from Florence.

I offer small group tours from Siena for a reasonable price because we like giving the chance to more guests to join us for the day.

I give all the informations to my guests coming from Florance to reach us, so I will personally be waiting for you st the bus stop and driving you back at the bus on the way back from the tour.

I send you the program and prices for the tour we suggest you to choose coming from Florence.

Please write me back to my email address

The prices of the small group tours are 160 Euros per person, as long as we have at least 3 guests for the day

If the tour ends up starting with one couple the price would be 190 per person, however it will really be like a private tour and as always the price includes:

- personal pick up at your hotel or near by some streets in Siena are closed also to the taxis

- transportation in a modern and comfortable van

- explanation of the area, my vans are all provided with a microphone, so every guest would easily listen to my explanation during the drive

- Visit of the wineries and tastings 

- Food pairing during the wine  

   Tastings 

- Special lunch, at the winery or  at

   best Trattoria or Osteria in the

      area

Brunello di Montalcino Tour Program

Franco Fadda Wine Tours focus on the quality of the tour rather than the number of wineries.   We prefer to offer you quality time at each winery, instead of rushing to the next appointment.  This way you can experience the process of wine making, tasting and the essence of the winery.

In our experience with tours, the more wineries you have the more possibility for lesser quality, rushed feeling and miscommunications with our guests and their expectations.  

When we arrive in the area of Montalcino, Franco is happy to stop at any place along the way that you request for taking pictures and/or asking about history of the area and stories about the area to enhance your experience.

The itinerary includes arriving at the first winery between 10:30 -11:00 am.  Please note that this is an estimation, which depends on the number of guests and their promptness to the meeting place to the actual time of departure from Sienna.  We encourage all guests to arrive early.

During the tour of each winery we are promised a complete visit of the wine cellar, and the opportunity to meet the wine producer (sometimes there may be a conflict due to wine producer’s work schedule).  We will give you all the information about the winery

and are more than happy to answer all of your questions about the wine production, pruning, training the vines, harvesting, etc.  Depending on the weather, this will include a walk through the vineyards.

The wineries include: Brunello di Montalcino normally produce 3/4 wines, IGT Tuscan Wine, Rosso di Montalcino D.O.C., Brunello di Montalcino D.O.C.G..  Also available to include in your tour is a stop at an olive grove where they produce the Extra Virgin

Olive Oil in the region.

Like all the red wines in Montalcino, based on the San Giovese grape, many wineries produce Honey and Rose Wine, which we provide more information on this wine in our tours.

After the first wine tasting we proceed to a local Osteria for a delightful and traditional Tuscan lunch. It is also possible to have lunch at the winery where they can also pair their wines with the food-often cooked by a member of the family.  This lunch is always a favorite of our guests, as it gives a chance to take in the countryside, wine, flavors of the food and conversation-what Italians love to do!  If you’d like to omit the lunch, we can head straight to the second winery for another magical and spectacular experience.

If you love the wine that you are tasting, you can purchase and ship it directly from the winery.  They will provide private ensured shipping.  

Thank you again

Please let me know if you have more questions

My Kind Regards

Cordially 

Franco
