nice afternoon

Really enjoyed this afternoon tour. We were picked up at our B&B promptly. We visited the old town of Monteriggioni where we had a half an hour to explore. Two wineries were visited next. A tour of the cellar was included at each, along with tasting of wines, olive oils and balsamic vinegar. There were 6 people on our tour, but we met up with other tour groups for the tasting at the wineries. Our driver spoke great English ! Highly recommend.
