On the recommendation of our hosts in Siena, six of us booked a tour of the Dievole Winery with Dario Castagno, and we are so glad we did! The winery itself is lovely and has done some wonderful things to honor its wines, its history, and its employees through the 900 (!) years of its existence. But what really made the day was being with Dario. His passion for his homeland shines through in his pitch-perfect stories of life in this region of Italy. He brings the history and culture to life in a fun and entertaining way.
We also had a contrada tour with Dario in Siena, a unique insight into the medieval lifestyle still so present in Siena.
My recommendation is this: hire Dario for any tour, and you'll have a fantastic time, learn a lot, and eat and drink well! Dario goes the extra mile to be sure his clients are well cared-for and having a good time. Hire him!
