The wine tour was packed with people. The hotel was spectacular but the actual wine tour wasn't that interesting and had way too many people. The tasting itself was very good. They poured excellent wines and served cheese to a group of 12 of us.

I can't say enough good things about this place. It has breathtaking views. The staff is top notch and our guide Michela is absolutely wonderful. This worth a trip if you are in Siena which is about an hours drive.
