Your host Sylvia
The wine world is all about passion, history, culture and food. As a sommelier it gives me pleasure to be able to share my knowledge of wine with other people.
I speak Italian, English, German and Dutch fluently. Furthermore I am personable, full of information and truly want everyone to have a great experience.
Welcome in Montepulciano
The wine and food experience in Montepulciano is a unique and unforgettable experience. In this tour we meet a historical family winery where we taste five quality wines paired with local food.
First we meet at the Piazza Grande where I start telling you about the story of the wine Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. Meanwhile I show you some of the symbols of Florence’s authority through art and architecture.
After our conversation and short introduction we walk to the winery.
Today the historical winery is beautifully renovated. It has direct view of the Tuscan landscape and San Biagio church.
This beautiful wine cellar is found under a church which belonged to a 12th century monastery “Convento dei Padri Serviti”.
The wine cellar is filled with Slavonian oak barrels where the wine ages up to two years. The temperature is stable and the humidity is optimal. It is a perfect location for storage and aging of wine.
By walking through the wine cave we discover a wonderful treasure of an ancient Etruscan Tomb dating back to the 6th century BC.
At the end of the tour in the wine cellar we taste the fabulous wines and food at the restaurant.
A selection of local wines with different styles: Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Riserva; Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Rosso di Montepulciano, Vernaccia di San Gimignano and a sweet dessert wine.
