Wine tastings & tours

We are open every afternoon (give or take) from 1 March through to (circa) 20 December.  We would be delighted to see you for a tasting or tour, whichever suits you.

Montecalvi: Numero Uno

This is an in-depth wine tour and tasting for the wine lover seeking a unique look at winemaking. The tour is held by Jacqueline Bolli, whose family previously owned Montecalvi, and who knows a thing or two about the place! Jackie will tell you about our vineyards and how they have changed over the years and she will lead you through the cellar and explain how the producer and winemaker make their decisions. You will then take a seat on our panoramic terrace or under our ancient loggia (depending on the weather), and Jackie will take you through a guided tasting of all of our (available) wines – our Vermentino, the Chianti Classico and Chianti Classico Riserva, and our two Super Tuscans, the San Piero and the VV. The wines will be accompanied by local antipasti and Montecalvi Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Duration: 2 hours. Cost: €40 per person (children welcome and free). By appointment: please email us at sales@montecalvi.com.

Montecalvi: Numero Due

This tour is ideal for experienced wine lovers and novices alike. We will take you on a tour of our cellar and show you how our wines are made. We will then give you a guided tasting of four of our wines: our Vermentino, the Chianti Classico, and our two Super Tuscans, the San Piero and the VV. The wines will be served with local antipasti and Montecalvi Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Duration: 1.5 hours. Cost: €25 per person (children welcome and free). By appointment: please email us at sales@montecalvi.com.
