Welcome in Montalcino
The Brunello Wine and Food tour with a sommelier is an enjoyable and informative tour and one of the most personalized wine and food experiences in Tuscany!
“After a wonderful wine and food experience in Montepulciano, Sylvia arranged a second excursion to a magnificent winery in Montalcino, land of the mighty Brunello wines. We had a thorough guided tour of the property and then of the wines themselves, experiencing them from terrain to tongue. Sylvia then took us to the winery’s restaurant and wine shop in town, where we got to sample more wines from the region and shared an especially delicious meal. The winery owners even dropped in to warmly greet us and chat, making the experience just that much more personal and welcoming. It was the perfect finish to a long weekend in Tuscany, and we couldn’t be happier with Sylvia and the experiences she arranged for us!” David and Amy (Virginia, USA)
The Brunello Wine and Food tour is suitable for all wine-lovers, beginners or connoisseurs. Our guests will be guided by a wine expert on the wine estate of Le Potazzine.
Le Potazzine is a family-run winery situated 4 km southwest of Montalcino. The estate consists of 5 hectares of vineyards lying between 300 – 500 meters above sea level.
We will start by showing you the amazing vineyards and the breathtaking view over the hilly landscape of the Val d’Orcia area. After a short walk the tour will be followed by a visit to the wine cellar.
In the wine cellar the guide explains you the winemaking process from vine to bottle and you will see many bottles and medium Slavonian oak barrels for the aging of both Brunello and Rosso di Montalcino.
We finish the tour in the tasting room where you can enjoy three excellent local wines.
