The driver for our tour was excellent. I cannot remember his name. Sorry! Also, the two wine tours we attended were a great time. All the guests in the van were very pleasant and that made the tour more enjoyable.

Five hours was a good length of time for 2 winery tours and a quick walk-around at 2 hilltop villages. Francesco, our driver, was friendly and relaxed (and a good driver!). The first winery was Poggio Amorelli, a small and relatively new winery. Our tour guide there was Lorenzo. He did a great job of putting a lot of information about the history, the region, the winery and the wine into perspective. Really outstanding presentation! This tour was great value for what we paid. Pick-up and drop-off at our agriturismo was included and convenient.
