It wil be highly appreciated!
Sylvia was a great host and tour guide. We learned a lot, not only about the wine in the region, but some history of Montepulciano. The meal was delicious and we luckily got to meet the winemaker as well! Highly recommend this experience when in Montepulciano.
It was a real taste of Italian food and wine experience. Great food, perfect Montepulciano wine and fanstastic host – Sylvia – 100% dedicated to her role. It was a real pleasure to spend this time with Sylvia to know a little bit a about the history of Montepulciano, wine production and Italian culture. I strongly recommend!
We loved our tour with Sylvia! The wines were excellent and the food was superb. We were treated so well by the winery and by Sylvia! Highly recommend!

This was one of the best experiences we have ever had! Sylvia was SO passionate and knowledgeable and we were treated like royalty and felt so special. She went over and beyond to make this experience fantastic. I can not recommend this experience enough. We were spoiled with fantastic wine and extraordinary food from the highest quality. If you are in Montepulciano this the the one experience that is a MUST DO!
It was a pleasure to meet Sylvia and learn more about the wine from Montepulciano. We felt that Sylvia is passionate about her work and her country of adoption. We went to the winery and had the chance to meet a part of the family owning it, all were very welcoming ! My partner and I are very grateful to Sylvia for that experience and the time she spent with us, she was the perfect guide.
If you love Italian food, wine and culture, you should definitely go on this experience with Sylvia. This very friendly Dutch-Italian lady knows a lot about Montepulciano and maybe even more about its wonderful wine: Vino Nobile di Montelpulciano. We enjoyed half a day with Sylvia at the welcoming Gattavecchi wine family and their restaurant + wine cellar. We tasted a generous(!) amount of their wines, accompanied with delicious cold cuts, cheese and pasta. We would highly recommend this experience.
Sylvia has a great passion for Italy and its wine. She takes you through a well balanced mixture of sightseeing, food and wine tasting. You start in one of the most amazing squares in the world (sunny in our case), you will descend in a deep and cool Etruscan tomb. And finally you will taste delicious Tuscan food in a former monastery of XIII century. Of course the highlight is the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano.
A wonderful experience learning about the area and the wines. It was interesting to try the local Montepulciano wines and area cuisine. I especially enjoyed meeting the fellow travelers and sharing stories. Thank you, Sylvia. You are a charming and knowledgeable host!
An amazing experience that I can’t recommend enough. Whether you enjoy wine, history or just spending time with great people, this experience has it all. Sylvia’s beauty and charm is only surpassed by her love and knowledge of wine and the gifted way in which she shares it. She delighted us with tales of local history and made us feel welcome. More like spending time with a lost family member than meeting her for the first time. The wine was superb, the pasta and cheese excellent, everyone should experience this if they visit Montepulciano…you won’t regret it.
