Stroll through scenic vineyards and sample local wines at 2 wineries in Maremma, a hidden gem of Tuscany. The day begins in Civitavecchia with pickup from your hotel or a designated meeting point. From here, travel approximately 40 miles to Southern Tuscany, an area rich in history and tradition that will impress you with its natural beauty. The first stop of the day is at Montauto farm. Surrounded by typical Tuscan Maremma landscapes, this is the perfect place to learn about and sample Morellino di Scansano and other wines produced in this region. The winery offers a wide range of products, suitable for every palate and occasion. Between wineries, stop to take a dip in Saturnia, Cascate del Mulino – one of Italy's most popular hot spring destinations. Take a relaxing soak in pools that are naturally 37°C (98°F) all year round and enjoy the unique landscape. Next, head to Cantine Vignaioli, a winery founded in 1972 when a small group of producers from Scansano decided to combine their efforts in wine production. Whether you are a beginner or a wine connoisseur, you will surely enjoy the guided tour through the cellar and its surroundings.

Andrea was amazing, he was very knowledgeable as a guide. He definitely knows his way around the area and he definitely knows his stuff! We arrived slightly earlier and he managed to meet us and tweaked the itinerary so we can fit in more sightseeing views on the way to the cellars. Andrea’s choice of the wine cellars was top notch! The wine was amazing, the people at the winery were so knowledgeable and welcoming and the views were beyond compare. Andrea even tried to fit in an extra cellar in the day when he found out our preferences, really exceptional! I highly recommend Andrea if you are planning this journey. And take with you swimming suits as you get to take a dip in the Terme Di Saturnia!
