Best experience in Italy. Our guide Ralph was really helpful and kind, he gave a good insightful information about Tuscan wines which was amazing. The first winery was Casa Emma, and this was my favourite. The view was amazing the wines were really good along with cheese and cold cuts. We also toured the wine cellar in the second winery (Fattoria Montecchio), although the view of the vineyard was not as nice as Casa Emma. In total, we had 8 glasses of wine with bites, REALLY WORTH IT!!!

The most beautiful drive through Tuscany and the most beautiful vineyards! This was such a relaxing and fun way to spend the day! The wines, olive oils, and balsamic vinegar were so delicious. Everyone at the vineyards were so accommodating. One of our friends on the trip has a gluten allergy and they made sure she had gluten free bread and could enjoy the tastings as well. Jason our tour guide was wonderful and Patrick our driver was great!

Gorgeous country side. Very professionally run, fun, and of course, tasty. I enjoyed just driving through Florence on the way, seeing some of the major sites you might miss in your stay. The wine is excellent and there is plenty of it.
