The whole world feels laid out in front of you on a drive through the Sienese Clay Hills; a photograph in every eyeful, a delight to behold around every turn in the road.

Enjoy typical Tuscan cuisine in a countryside setting, toasting with a glass of Brunello di Montalcino!

Meander through Pienza, a lovely, picturesque Renaissance town, whose narrow streets and local Pecorino cheese entice and delight; the latter an outstanding cheese made with sheep's milk.

Experience Montalcino, home to world renowned Brunello wine. Explore the body, color, extract, texture, depth embodied in this Tuscan jewel. Taste, drink, savor, study, buy, ship this prestigious Sangiovese nectar with the aid of your knowledgable guide, on a visit to a local cellar.

A Recent Review of this tour

Roberto C picked us up at our villa in the hills around Siena and drove us in his 7 person Mercedes van through the magnificent hills of Tuscany. He could not have been more accommodating and gracious to our 5 person group. We tasted wine, visited a stunning abbey, and had lunch on a hilltop farm patio that provided a quintessential Tuscan experience. All in all a memorial experience for us all.
