We will be spending 5 nights at Il Borro in a few weeks. Besides the local winery run by the Ferragamo family, can you suggest a few different day trips and specific wineries we can take for wine tasting? We don't need a full winery tour at each stop so would like to get to several wineries each day (while respecting the Italian lunch time) comprised of both boutique and established vineyards.

Thanks,

Steve

Hi Steve,

So sorry I haven’t been able to respond to your post before now. I went on a little vacation to Denmark – for some beer drinking drunken – and have been busy catching up with work upon my return.

You should definitely set up a tour perhaps in the morning at the winery that you are most keen on seeing within each region.

Most other wineries you can visit without an appointment for a quick tasting during the time 10 am to 1 pm and then again from 3 or 4 pm to 7 pm.

In your shoes, I would look into bringing a wine book like for example “vino italiano” by Joseph Bastianich & David Lynch which gives you quick reference of the different wineries as you pass them. The best reference divided in zones would be the Italian Wines 2008 by the Gambero Rosso Editore. If not, another great reference to me is Monty Waldin’s “How to find great wines off the beaten track” which takes you on itineraries in the different regions. I believe you can find these books on Amazon and hopefully you’re in time to get one or more of them.

And then it is just a matter of choosing which areas you would like to visit and to pick between the many wineries in each area - it can be a little overwhelming because there are so many wineries to choose from... Embarassed

In the Arezzo area you have some good wineries to visit such as Tenuta Sette Ponti, Petrolo and Tenimenti d’Alessandro (down by Cortona), just to mention a few.
