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.

Who loves Italian, he is well aware that wine here, though not cheap at all, but some of the best. We therefore gladly replenished their stock of wines. And you also recommend

  • I am glad we stopped on our visit to Montepulciano - it is just really a beautiful place. We found the wine needed to be aged longer. It will be awesome in a couple of years as it develops but I am no...  more »

  • 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.
