Arranging Wine Tastings in Tuscany

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be spending 3 nights in Siena as part of a 2 1/2 week trip this May. We are fans of wine and wineries and have been to the Napa/Sonoma Valleys several times. On our last trip to Italy we tried the same tactic that we normally do in California: find a list of wineries and show up. This didn't seem to work as well in Italy. Everyone was very friendly but we felt like uninvited relatives that you have to be polite to!

We have heard from friends that it is possible to book ahead and reserve a tour/tasting at some of the wineries that we would love to see. Has anyone done this before and do you have any recommendations?

Or perhaps we just chose inappropriate places to just drop in - has anyone had wonderful experiences that they would like to share?

Thank you very much!
