Avignonesi, Montepulciano

4.5
#1 of 19 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. By using our Montepulciano vacation builder, you can arrange your visit to Avignonesi and other attractions in Montepulciano.

    Tour of the winery and vineyards with family and friends, accompanied by Simon we saw some spectacular places! We then stopped in for lunch, according to all of us was the best restaurant we ate in the 10 we have experienced these days. The wines are amazing, made with care and respecting nature! Highly recommended!

    Excellent hotel breathes history, tradition and passion. Avignonesi wine we knew 'em and we switched to understand a bit more about the origins of these wonderful products. Here not only is there a tradition but a new focus on healthy and organic. We ate at the restaurant on the estate, all homemade or from organic farms, the chicken on the spit a show! Great wines, we started from Cantaloro white, Marzocco, Rosso di Montepulciano, great vintages, Griffi, Desire, 50 & 50, Vin Santo. Which products! Accompanied by Mr. Falls Sales Manager, extremely nice and helpful person, wine connoisseur and history of Avignonesi we did visit the old Winery, the vinegar factory and the production of Vin Santo that to be ready for more than 15 years in the barrel rests. But first a vineyard where he told us a few details and little details that make world class product product Avignonesi. Thanks to Simone Falls and Avignonesi, you are amazing!!

    We stopped at this wonderful property for a tasting. We opted for the one that provides the taste of a white wine and two red and costs €10 per person. The wines included in the tasting are all relatively "young" ... the chardonnay (only white of their production) very lovable. The two red equally deserving. The staff is very friendly and competent. We will definitely be back!

  • 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!
  • Visited a few years ago with friends who getting married in the area. Brought home several bottles from thus vineyard.
  • My wife and I stumbled upon this gem while on our honeymoon. Great wine, food and views. Very nice staff as well.
  • 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.
