Mark and Giselle are awesome.

The reservation was easily made over email and they were very accommodating in picking us up at our vacation rental.

Mark was the perfect guide - entertaining and informative, never stuffy or boring. He's passionate about Umbria, just the same as the cantina owners we visited. Lovely people who do hard work that they are proud to share. None of the regular "what does this one smell like? what leads on the palette? you should taste bark and cinnamon". None of that crap. Just happy people who know their wine is good and want you to experience it - and it is GOOD.

Be prepared to ship some home - you can't get Sagrantino at the local grocery store.

Thanks Mark for an unforgettable day!

We had the best time with Mark on our wine tour. Both Mark and Gieselle are so helpful. I had to change my reservation date and they made sure that I was accommodated. We took a train to Trevi where Mark picked us up. Mark gave very informative directions from where to get the train tickets to how to find the correct platform in Rome. Mark has a great wealth of knowledge about the Umbria region and well as a great sense of humor. We tasted some wonderful wines, and had one of the best lunches of our entire trip. Mark took us to an Agriturismo. A working farm that also catered to tourists. The place was beautiful and quiet and had an amazing pool. It looked like a wonderful place to relax and unwind. We went to three different wineries and were not disappointed in any of them. I would highly recommend Gusto Wine Tours

Four of us had a wonderful day, tasting not only the wines of the region, but also their food and hospitality, ably, and amusingly, guided by Mark. I would wholeheartedly recommend Gusto Wine Tours.

Mark was took us to some great vineyards and a delicious lunch. He is very knowledgeable about the area and wines. His wife helped us pick an easy spot to meet and park as we were staying in Tuscany. It was one of the best days of our trip to Italy!

It's hard to know where to start with piling on the accolades for this business, i.e., Mark and Giselle. From my wife's initial contacts via email where we received excellent advice on travel to and staying in Umbria, through setting the pickup time (we were in a part of Spoleto where Mark could not drive), including the tour, follow-up emails, flawless shipping, etc. Well, just as good as it gets, I believe.

And, the tour - Mark is friendly, engaging, very knowledgeable about the wines and wineries, and just a great, great guide. We learned a lot, met some great people at the wineries, drank amazing wines, ate superbly at an agriturismo farm, and had a day that we'll remember always.

If you visit Umbria, a Gusto Wine Tour will make you love the region even more. Don't miss it.
