We'll pick you up from your hotel in Florence at 9am, and drive through the scenic hills to Montalcino, home of the Brunello wine, prized for its full body. Our first stop is the Altesino winery, renowned for its quality, located on a beautiful country estate. After enjoying a visit and tasting of their best wines, it will be lunch time! (Not included) We'll visit the town of Montalcino, known for its imposing fortress, and you'll have plenty of time to explore the typical products’shops, cafes and wine bars. After lunch, we’ll regroup and visit the Abbey of Sant'Antimo, a magic place where monks continue the tradition of Gregorian chants. If we're lucky, we will be maybe able to hear them. Then the tour moves on to the cellars of Biondi Santi, birthplace of the Brunello di Montalcino wine. You'll enjoy a tasting and learn more about the history of this famous family and winery. Then, time permitting, we may visit another winery, or make our way back to Florence. The relaxing scenery will continue the day's experience, as you meditate on the uniqueness of Tuscany.
