Angie and Claudia helped make our mother-daughter vacation in Florence a fantastic experience! The tour into the Tuscan countryside to visit 2 family-owned wineries immersed us in the culture of this beautiful region. We learned interesting facts about the wines from the Chianti region. The wineries' owners were wonderful - and so was the wine tasting! Angie selected a restaurant for lunch that would rate a 4-star rating in any city in the US. I would recommend the tour to anyone and hope to visit again and take another tour!

We love Angela's stories and driving us around the Tuscany hills and wine tasting. I was trying to find a reasonable wine tour company that was willing to pick us up at our vacation home located in Romita, since we were going to do wine tasting and did not want to drive or have one of us not enjoy the experience. She was so nice and said she would pick us up and bring us back home. It was a very special day for us and Angela had a ton of very funny stories and within a few minutes we all seemed to think she was part of the family. Loved the story about Grappa. The wine tasting and food for lunch were spectacular. We bought wine and they even had wine packaging that we could safely pack and bring home in our suitcase. We still have the Classico Chianti left for Christmas. Love you, Angie and we will be back and have you take us on another adventure.

Having been on wine tours in many locations, we have experienced one of the best in Tuscany with Francesca of Tuscan Wine Tours with Angie. Francesca is a sommelier and was very knowledgeable even impressing the winemakers we visited. Starting with an on-time pick up at a convenient location (we were coming from 50 km away), Francesca provided an educational and enjoyable tour of Tuscan wine country stopping at great wineries, where we made purchases at each. The "new" olive oil just pressed was remarkable as well. A mid-day stop for a quaint lunch was very enjoyable too. We would highly recommend Angie's tour and would suggest you request Francesca as your guide.

Four years ago we spent a memorable day with Angie sampling the wines and food in the Chianti region. Because we had such a great day, and realized then that our limited 9 day visit to several of the largest Italian cities was clearly not enough time to truly experience more of what Italy is and has to offer, we decided to return for a much longer stay in October 2015. In doing so, we asked Angie to meet us in Montalcino for a touring day in the Brunello region. She graciously and cheerily obliged, and another fantastic cultural, culinary and oenological experience ensued. She took us to two wonderful wineries very different in character and size from one another. The wines were marvelous at both, the owners highly engaging and informative, and the lunch in a nearby 900-year-old building housing a terrific restaurant was delicious. It was a full day of outstanding experiences that are now embedded in fond memories of a great return trip. Thank you, Angie. We knew we could rely on you.

I don't usually like tours, but this one was outstanding! Francesca was our guide and wine sommelier. She was very informative and simply awesome. The wineries were great too. We had lunch at a wonderful restaurant: the best gnocchi I've ever had. Do yourself a favor: book this tour now!

In September 2015, we took Angie's wine tour to Brunello. It was a small intimate tour led by Francesca; an incredibly knowledgeable and passionate guide. On the drive to the first wine tour, we learned about the region and the wines we would taste. The wines at both wineries were delicious and the personnel were incredibly welcoming and friendly. There was no question that they could not answer. The family style lunch at a local restaurant was one of the best of our vacation. On our next trip to the region we will definitely do another tour with Angie!
