Enjoy some nature and sunshine as you expand your wine palette, with this full-day wine-tasting tour from Cortona.
Your local guide will meet you in Cortona and bring you to a small family vineyard facing the Chiana Valley, where you’ll taste a range of their Nobile Montepulciano wines and discover the traditional methods of barreling and aging the grapes.
After our tour and tasting in this scenic vineyard, we’ll head to the medieval town of Montepulciano, where we’ll stop in a historic enoteca where they age their wines in ancient tunnels underneath the city streets.
Explore these underground tunnels and indulge in a gourmet lunch featuring their own production of olive oil and truffles (season permitting), along with their neighbors’ pecorino cheeses, salamis, and honey… all paired with wines from the owners’ family vineyard.
Then we’ll head back toward Cortona, a small hilltop town overlooking the sparkling lake Trasimeno, stopping in a nearby Cortonese vineyard for our final tasting. The hills around Cortona have unique microclimates that give the signature DOC wines of the area their unmistakable tasting notes. Taste these Cortona wines and train your palette as you learn how to distinguish them from those of Montepulciano.

Fantastic service by Nicolo. Easy to communicate with, always on time and very knowledgeable. Had a great few days around Buonconvento and Montalcino. Definitely look these guys up when you're in the area
I can highly recommend Nicolo and team. Great service, always on time, and very knowledgable of the area.
The wine tour with Niccolo was one of the highlights of our Tuscan holiday. Very well planned by Niccolo, who picked us up and took us to Fattoria dei Barbi, one of the oldest vineyards in the region, 5 out of 5. Thanks Niccolo, we'll be back!
