Any winery tours recommended in Italy?

I would like to tour a winery in Tuscany in about a month. Does anyone have any suggestions for nice winery tours?

Troubadour, Your best bet is to do a search on winery tours. If you had a question about a specific winery you are more likely to get a response.

Try doing your search first, I did a quick one and several came up. There are many different tours too, some with a private driver, etc.

Hi Troubadour, last year we took a winery tour with Christina from Christina's Tour (www.christinastour.com) through the Chianti aera. Don't know if she's still in business. It was very interesting and we took the opportunity to buy some Chianti wine to bring back home.

Drove to Dievole Winery last June. Very nice tour lots of tasting/eating. Sales pitch at the end but very nice wine, shipped some home (my husband is still hoarding it). Small winery that does very informative small tour.

We visited Altessino in Montalcino (known for brunello) and Avignonesi in Montepulciano (known for vino nobile) last summer. Both were enjoyable. However, you need to call in advance and arrange for a tour (usually private) before you visit. Unlike the wineries in California, you can't just drop in! We called both wineries the morning of our visit and made arrangements for later in the deal. The guides were very good and knowledgeable about the wine and the wine making process at both wineries. In addition to the brunello and the vino nobile, there were other types of wine available for tasting as well. The prices were good, too.
