Avignonesi, Montepulciano

4.5
#1 of 22 in Wineries in Montepulciano
A vineyard dedicated to using as many local resources as possible, Avignonesi eschews herbicides, pesticides, and fertilizers on its vines. Instead, the winery promotes biodiversity by growing secondary crops between the vineyards. Soil enriched with herbal teas boost the vine's immune system. At midday and in the afternoon, you can tour the cellars in the Lodola Estate and the Vinsantaia, where the famed Vin Santo wine ages in oak casks. The midday tour is accompanied by a lunch that complements the vines. A tasting follows the afternoon tour. Tastings are always free with the purchase of a bottle of wine. You can take a cooking class to prepare meals that complement the wines. Plan to see Avignonesi and other attractions that appeal to you using our Montepulciano travel route planning app .

  • I visited Avignonesi last year and ate lunch with my family. I'm writing a review a year later because I honestly can't stop thinking about how amazing it was. The views from the dining area are drop dead gorgeous and the food is on par with the view. We made a last minute booking, the staff was very kind on the phone. They fit us in with a large group but they did not let us fall by the wayside. Even though they did not plan for us, the service and the food was spectacular. I suggest that you attempt to taste every wine and food pairing on the menu. It's easily done with three people; just pass the dishes and cups to your hearts desire then fight for you favorite! As far as the wine tour goes, it was not too long or complicated but you got to see some of the features that make the vineyard special like it's radial vineyard. Overall, an unforgettable experience.
  • Came here for wine tasting and tasting platter. Waitress was very helpful and friendly. Sat outside which was pleasant. Nice wine shop. No wine tours available on Sundays. Buildings were old and classic. Shop was modern
  • The best Vin Santo in the world. They are it ten years in the barrel until it's as thick as honey, and no less delicious.
  • Just returned from Avignonesi vineyard. We went based on Tripadviser reviews and we are really happy with our experience. We were not booked in for a tour but we were still able to have our own wine tasting- 3 wines for €10 per person. The €10 is deducted from bottles of wine you might purchase. Lunch is expensive but it was possible to order a selection of cheeses, meats, bruschetta etc for two people sharing for €30. The food was delicious and perfect for two people. Afterwards we were allowed to walk around the grounds despite not being on a tour.
  • Can't think of a better way to spend an afternoon in Tuscany. Did the vineyard tour with lunch. Great food and unsurprisingly great wine. Spent about 5 hours here from 1130-1630
