“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)
