During the season, we have many guests visiting the Province of Siena and Florence, looking for a Day Wine tour, private tour or Small Group Tour, in the Brunello di Montalcino area, or Chianti Classico, or San Gimignano or Nobile di Montepulciano wine area.
I often ask my guests how they found my service, and some times, they tell me I was referred by a friend or often they say they found me online, searching for
“ The Best Wine Tour in Siena”.
The Brunello di Montalcino tour is the most common, everyone look for “Brunello di Montalcino” the “Best red wine in Siena and Tuscany”.
But what is the Best Wine Tour in Siena?
With my long Experience offering Wine Tours in Siena area, I realized that my guests need the Tuscan simplicity, human touch by a local, the tour does not have to be too technical but have to offer the all the informations in order to offer a full day wine Class and give them the chance to make them feel Tuscan for a day, friends giving them more then wine tour.
Great Tuscan Lunch, wine and top food, only organic, this will please our guests, sharing the experience with other guests from different nationalities, but normally Americans.
This is an example of “ the Best Wine Tour in Siena “.
The price of the Tour might be an issue, but considering the top quality of our lunch, the unlimited time and the quality of the service we think to be competitive.

Brunello Tour Detailed Program
Franco Fadda Wine Tours focus on the quality of the tour rather than the number of wineries. We prefer to offer you quality time at each winery, instead of rushing to the next appointment. This way you can experience the process of wine making, tasting and the essence of the winery.
In our experience with tours, the more wineries you have the more possibility for lesser quality, rushed feeling and miscommunications with our guests and their expectations.
When we arrive in the area of Montalcino, Franco is happy to stop at any place along the way that you request for taking pictures and/or asking about history of the area and stories about the area to enhance your experience.
The itinerary includes arriving at the first winery between 10:30 -11:00 am. Please note that this is an estimation, which depends on the number of guests and their promptness to the meeting place to the actual time of departure from Sienna. We encourage all guests to arrive early.
During the tour of each winery we are promised a complete visit of the wine cellar, and the opportunity to meet the wine producer (sometimes there may be a conflict due to wine producer’s work schedule). We will give you all the information about the winery
and are more than happy to answer all of your questions about the wine production, pruning, training the vines, harvesting, etc. Depending on the weather, this will include a walk through the vineyards.
The wineries include: Brunello di Montalcino normally produce 3/4 wines, IGT Tuscan Wine, Rosso di Montalcino D.O.C., Brunello di Montalcino D.O.C.G.. Also available to include in your tour is a stop at an olive grove where they produce the Extra Virgin
Olive Oil in the region.
Like all the red wines in Montalcino, based on the San Giovese grape, many wineries produce Honey and Rose Wine, which we provide more information on this wine in our tours.
After the first wine tasting we proceed to a local Osteria for a delightful and traditional Tuscan lunch. It is also possible to have lunch at the winery where they can also pair their wines with the food-often cooked by a member of the family. This lunch is always a favorite of our guests, as it gives a chance to take in the countryside, wine, flavors of the food and conversation-what Italians love to do! If you’d like to omit the lunch, we can head straight to the second winery for another magical and spectacular experience.
If you love the wine that you are tasting, you can purchase and ship it directly from the winery. They will provide private ensured shipping.
