Avignonesi, Montepulciano

Categories: Wineries & Vineyards, Food & Drink
Inspirock Rating:
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.

We did the tour representing the least. I'm not going back and don't buy these wines because I know the best companies.

  • Unlike other wineries, the instructor had perfect knowledge of what he talked about with pre-prepared lesson that enabled everyone to have interest in knowing more. The lunch nicely arranged, with perfect harmonization between wines and menu. Fantastic, worth all the price charged.

  • My wife and I stumbled upon this gem while on our honeymoon. Great wine, food and views. Very nice staff as well.
  • Great wine
  • If you are a winelover and you are in the area, you must absolutely go and have lunch in Avignonesi. The food is great, the view is marvelous and you have the opportunity to taste all the wines of avignonesi. When you have tasted all the wines, it gives you a good idea of the potential of Tuscan wines. Don't miss
  • 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.
