The rave reviews others on this site have given Donatella are well deserved. I reached out to her ahead of our group's (there were 22 of us) cruise in the Mediterranean to coordinate a tour in the Tuscan wine country. She responded promptly and professionally, tying up all of the tour details very quickly. The tour itself was fabulous, the highlight of our time off the boat through the Mediterranean. The owners of the family owned wineries we visited were waiting at each stop ready to share their wines and stories with us as if we were part of their family. The tour alone would have been well worth the money we spent, but Donatella's energetic personality and passion for wine and Tuscany made the day all the more fun and memorable. She fit in very easily with everyone in our large group that spanned three generations. Believe me, you can't go wrong booking a tour with her.

Had a fabulous day with Donatella and the rest of our group. All the wineries (4) were great and the people so generous with their time, knowledge and hospitality. Having lunch at a family home was the icing on the cake and such a memorable experience. The Tuscan landscape was also beautiful as we drove between wineries. I would highly recommend this tour for the fun, intimate experience and Donatella's lovely bubbly personality. She really looked after us on the tour and nothing was too much trouble.

We took your WONDERFUL tour last September in your "baby",
the black van. When it was over you gave us a "Wine Tour"
cork as a souvenir. I am writing to say that this evening
we came home from church and we are now drinking our last
bottle of Chianti Classico along with some Spanish
Manchecho cheese. It was a cause for celebration of our
good times in Italy, the highlight of which was our
day-long tour with you, the highlight of which was our
long, but enjoyable day with you and your friends in the
wine business. I am a vegetarian, but I ate that
delicious lasagna meal with relish. That family was so
gracious to us, as were all your other hosts and
hostesses.

This is just a note to say how much we enjoyed ourselves
that day and hope to be able to come back some day in the
future. By the way, I use my special "Wine Tour" cork at
every opportunity.

Thanks again for such a wonderful experience and a most
memorable fun-filled day!

Went with a group of friends (4 of us in total). Donatella was a brilliant host: energetic, chatty and friendly and most of all made the tour feel very personal. Her passion for wine and her local area is really clear. She took us to some great small wineries and was fascinating hearing all the stories from the winemakers and trying their wines. We also stopped at a few villages and heard a bit about the history of the area. We ate and drank so much amazing food and wine. Whilst it's not the cheapest tour you can do, it was a fantastic day out and would highly recommend it to anyone else.

My 3 children and I were fortunate to have been able to book a Brunello Wine Tour with Donatella along with 2 other couples. She is what her glowing reviews say and more....a vivacious, energetic, knowledgeable and dynamic lady who had an amazing ability to put everyone at ease and made our group feel like old friends enjoying an excursion. We were promptly fetched from our hotel, and we drove through the most absolutely stunning Val d'Orcia and stopped by some sunflower fields to take photos. It was evident from the start that Donatella carefully planned each & every stop we made and saw to it that everything was in order. We visited 3 wineries, each one different but all producing exceptional wine, Brunello di Montalcino! The owners were so charming, warm & welcoming and we were treated as guests....exploring the grounds & cellars, sampling wines & being served food along with it. It was a very relaxed & happy atmosphere.
Lunch was at a retired chef's place, he only cooks for Donatella's group. It was both delicious & tasty and prepared with care.
This day was clearly the highlight of our Tuscan Trip, mainly because we had such a fantastic guide. We highly recommend this whole day tour . The wonderful memories of this day will surely stay with us forever!!! Thank you Donatella, till our next tour with you!
