Dinner at a South Tuscan Winery

Hi all,

My family of 7 adults are looking for a dinner/tour at a winery. We found this one, but they cant fit us in for the dates we wanted in Sept. This is the one we found: http://www.fattoriadeibarbi.net/eng/vis.html
called An Evening at Barbi (2nd tour in link).
We'd like something in the same area...has anyone found anything like this?

Thanks so much!
Jamie

jami,

I suggest you look into Poggio Antico, very close to Barbi. I don't know if they do the same thing, but we did a tour and had lunch there a few months ago. They offer dinner as well.

Sorry you missed on Barbi---nice place.
You have 2 other good options at Poggio Antico and Castello Banfi--neither are inexpensive.

Avignonesi is among the most prestigious wine estates in Southern Tuscany. If you look at their website you can find some information about meals at Le Capezzine not far from Montepulciano.

Thanks so much for your help! I will check these out. I'm afraid they may be a bit pricey...the great thing about Barbi was the price

Thanks!

The Taverna at Castello Banfi has a 3-course tasting menu for 46 Euros. You might check that out. Also, we had a great time with a wine flight AND olive oil tasting at Enoteca Osteria Osticcio, on via Matteoti, 23, in Montalcino. The owner was very nice, and gave us much advice about the drive to Rome that we were to make the next day.
