Wine tour and tasting in Montalcino

At Podere le Ripi we tend to take the wine experience in Montalcino very seriously. We don’t just assume that everyone is a wine expert, but rather a wine lover that wants to find out more about what we do and why. A wine tour and tasting in Montalcino should be an experience to remember and cherish, or at least that’s how we see it!

We are a biodynamic winery boutique in Castelnuovo dell’Abate, approximately 15 minutes east from the town of Montalcino (you can download the driving directions here). Join us and discover the estate in a relaxed atmosphere, while enjoying the breathtaking view of the UNESCO world site Val D’Orcia.

The Wine Tour and Tastings are on demand and always private... we care about your privacy.
You will be guided by our experienced staff throughout the whole winemaking journey: from the farming in the vineyard all the way to the processing of the grapes in our Wine Cellar cave, to end up in our tasting room were you will be able to choose between three different types of wine tastings. Our guys are not tour guides, but wine experts, winemakers, cellar masters and agronomist and they will be making your Montalcino wine tour experience worthwhile.

So, groove on the view of our centenary olive trees and our vineyards during the guided tour. From Il Ciliegio: the high-density vineyard, to the Bonsai vineyard, the densest in the world with more than 62.500 plants/H. Enjoy walking through the Golden Cellar, built underground following ancient roman architectural techniques, this golden ratio-inspired building was completely constructed by hand without any reinforced concrete. You will be explained the productive processes of the biodynamic farming philosophy from the processes of tillage and vinification to that of refinement of the wine. At the end, just to top off your tasting experience, in the peace and quietness of our panoramic tasting room, you will be savouring our finest wines, including our Brunello di Montalcino. You will have the possibility of choosing among different typology of Wine Tastings often accompanied by a drop of our olive oil (when available!).
