    Matteo was an excellent guide on our wine tour. He was impressively well informed, and we all learned so much about the viticulture and wines of the Chianti region. The three course meal at Relais Villa and Wine Bar was simple and delicious. All the beautiful scenery was fun to capture with my iPhone camera, and We won’t soon forget the great couples enjoying their honeymoons, and anniversaries; all such pleasant company for our wine tour. chin chin! Thank you, Matteo Philip and Marylou Mallouk Woodstock, CT US

    Very Educational.

    Our guide Matt is a sommelier as such he was excrement at discussing the various wines. What impressed me even more was his discussion of the countryside. Further, it rained hard during part of the trip and he rearranged the itenary to accomadate us but still got everything in. Finally, I have to mention the lunch we were served at the final stop; not only did we taste s local olive oil followed by a 3 course "lunch" but my wife is sensitive to gluten and they brought her GF bread and pasta!
