Avignonesi, Montepulciano
(4.7/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
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. By using our Montepulciano vacation builder, you can arrange your visit to Avignonesi and other attractions in Montepulciano.

  • Abstract: it was the birthday present that I did this year; expectations have been repaid in full. I booked the tour and lunch (obligatory condition and do for time, looked at the influx of foreign tourists). The company is located between Montepulciano and the beautiful road to Lake Trasimeno, along country scenarios and Hill very relaxing. We were greeted immediately with a glass of bubbles that we tasted sat outdoors, then began a visit to the vineyards, especially the circular-shaped; the Guide informed us with competence on the cultivation and varieties of vines present as well as the techniques of production methods and ageing of wines in the cellar, which we found to be of great impact. After the interesting visits to wineries, followed lunch served in a veranda to stationary step of a Fox in the front! Lunch was really good; articulated from appetizer to dessert, with dishes made with care and with the matching wines for almost the entire production, including the legendary bird's eye. A particularly appreciated the offer of the bis of wines and dishes on the menu. Sommelier and dining staff impeccable. In short, a beautiful day.

If we will happen again around back ...

  • Sensational day, a winery, for their fantastic wines, for visiting and tasting, an absolutely beautiful place, with climate (April), pleasant, reception and treatment absolutely sweet and kind, hospitable, seem to have a passion for Brazilians. Then we went to lunch that was included in this option visit reserve with "a lot of" advance (don't even think about going without reserve). You're going to pay an honest and fair value for such quality, cooking, simply one of the best I've experienced, a sequence of tastings, with starters, first and second dishes, desserts with all of Earth turned with mastery in mental via oral caress. Ah ... the wine of equal amplitude. but ... the most intriguing and overwhelmed everyone and everything ... the "Avignonesi, Occhio di Pernice" Occhio of Perniche, most Holy wine of that region, the region most highly regarded in wine production. This whole story could fill a chapter of book if it was crushing. Put this on your calendar whoever you are who read here ... Do not allow your soul to separate your body, without living this experience. When one day happen, of the soul the body leave and if we meet, you're going to even think about thanking me.

  • 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
  • The wine from this vineyard are delicious! And the fact that they are produced on an organic, biodynamic farm is an added bonus!
  • My wife and I stumbled upon this gem while on our honeymoon. Great wine, food and views. Very nice staff as well.
  • Great wine
  • The food, service and wine are all fabulous. I had an amazing time here and can't say enough good things about it. The tour guide was so knowledgeable and all the waiting staff were so professional and kind. The food and wine are to die for.
