For those already visiting Monte Castello or those residing in the village or region, we offer both wine tasting tours and cooking classes at our Asilo facility.

The tours are day-long events that include lunch and dinner. The schedule of our day trips coincides with that of our Wine Tour participants, so begins at 11 AM with an introduction to the grapes, wines, and cantina we will visit on that day (see the Itinerary below).  The wine-tasting is followed by lunch at Asilo from 1:00 – 2:30 and is followed at 4 PM by visits to cantina in the surrounding region. Each day we will offer visits to a different wine zone surrounding Monte Castello – all within an hour’s drive from the village.  Typically, we visit three vineyards, one of which includes a vineyard tour. 

Please see our Calendar for the daily trip schedule. While there, please also check out our Events Calendar for opportunities such as the Palio in Siena, the Giostra del Saracino, in Arezzo, soccer fans should also check out the Calcio Storico (Historical Soccer) event in Florence.

The cost is 75€ per person, per day and includes: lunch, wine tasting at Asilo, and transportation aboard our private bus, and two cantina visits. The price also includes admission and fees.
