We chose this tour because we wanted to focus on Brunello di Montalcino wines, and it was fantastic! We learned so much from the winemakers about their biodynamic winemaking processes and the wines themselves. Our hosts at each winery were warm, welcoming and generous with their time, and it was fascinating to talk to them and hear about their experiences. The wine and food all tasted great, and Montalcino and the Tuscan landscape provided the perfect environment.

I can’t say enough good things about our guide, Tommaso – an outstanding guide with extensive knowledge that he was happy to share with us. He is obviously passionate about his work, about Tuscany, and about promoting the region's small wineries. During the beautiful drive from Florence through the Tuscan countryside (and also as we wandered through the center of Montalcino), he told us about the area and provided explanations about what we were seeing along the way and what we would see at each winery. It was also a great opportunity to ask questions and have interesting discussions about a wide variety of topics. We enjoyed his company tremendously! I can’t say enough good things about this tour or about Tommaso – it was definitely a highlight of our time in Tuscany! I recommend this tour to anyone looking to spend the day immersed in Montalcino wine culture with an exceptional tour guide who feels like a friend by the end of the day.

We had a great experience with Gilberto (fabulous driver & guide) and De Gustibus. We visited 2 wonderful wineries, walked around Montalcino for a bit (satisfying my husband's desire to see a medieval town), and just had great wine, conversation and food. Both wineries were small and felt very intimate and personalized. We stopped and got to do the view over Piazzale Michelangelo on our way back into town. Very easy communicating with them to get it set up, picked us up at a location closer to our hotel and ended up just being the 5 of us so felt like a private tour. I highly recommend reaching out to De Gustibus and doing a tour with them. You won't regret it!

I took a tour with Tommaso and Simone a few days ago to discover the Brunello di Montalcino, it was highly higher than my expectations. The winery owners are very kind, have delicious wines and cook very well.
They made me discover the different wines of the region and I even had the chance to have a bonus stop to discover a new winery that was on our road. I can ensure that you'll have a great experience!
2020 may be the best year to do this tour because you'll taste he millésime from 2015.
Thanks again Tommaso and Simone.

Highly recommend this wine tour in Montalcino! Gilberto, our tour guide was wildly enthusiastic as well as an excellent guide. He was even able to book us dinner reservations post tour at a local restaurant. Mamma mia! We would recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in learning more about local wines without the crowds!

Had a wonderful tour with Gilberto to Montalcino for a winery tour. We were lucky enough to witness the bottling process prior to starting the tour of the castle and cellars. Lunch was outstanding and afterwards we drove to the Fortezza for additional wine sampling. Lovely day, lovely tour.

My wife and I booked the Brunello di Montalcino tour as the last hurrah of our vacation in Firenze. We had an amazing time touring two different small and off the beaten path producers of amazing Brunello. At the second vineyard, after a very informative tour of the production process, we had lunch prepared by the grandmother of one of the ladies working at the vineyard. The food and hospitality was just amazing.

Gilberto was our driver and tour guide. He was very friendly as well as knowledgeable about wine production in Tuscany. De Gustibus Tours was easy to work with and very reliable and trustworthy. I would 10/10 recommend this experience to any wine lover or anyone looking for something fun and unique to do in the beautiful Tuscan countryside.

We had the most perfect trip out to Montalcino from Florence. Gilberto was an excellent host! The wineries we visited were lovely, family-run wineries with high quality, small batch brunello production. We would absolutely recommend others to try this tour (especially if Brunellos are one of your faves).

Gilberto of De Gustibus Tours was our guide for this amazing tour into the Tuscany wine country. We were met at 9:00 in Fiesole, then to Florence to pick up the other guests, and off to wine country! It is quite a drive from Florence and Gilberto provided us with some very interesting history as we made our way. Our first visit was Monteriggioni, a medieval fortress village where we wandered briefly and had a coffee. We then visited Tornesi, a very small family winery where we toured their facilities, and where they also make olive oil. We met an additional group of guests here that joined our tour. It was a very interesting and enjoyable mix of people. We were served fabulous wines and a very special 5 course lunch. It was such a beautiful day and we were so satisfied, no one in our party wanted to budge! But we had more to see... Our next stop was Cuccio Rubino, another very small winery, where we toured their facilities and tasted their beautiful sparkling Rose and Brunellos. We eventually wound our way home and it was an 11 hour trek in all.
Gilberto was wonderful, we enjoyed him and everything he provided for us, and thank him for making our day so memorable.
