Montioni Frantoio e Cantina Reviews
What a winery visit! Let alone the winery itself and the excellent wines, Paulo's hospitality is surely something to write about. We loved the tour to the vineyard and lovely olive grove (best views..... more »

Today we had the experience of a lifetime. It is the experience by which other future experiences will be judged. We went on the Emotional Tour of Montioni Winery. It was truly the best experience we have had in a very long time. Paolo is a very knowledgeable person when it come to wine and olive oil making, and business, and life. The most wonderful part is that he communicates his crafts and heritage in such a positive and genuine way that you feel like you are talking with an old friend. He is truly a MASTER. We arrived for our tour, and there were many people going on the tour of the vineyards and olive groves. He made us fee special through his mannerisms and story telling. He included us rather than just talking to us. But now on to the sights, sounds, smells and tastes. We learned about several varieties of grape and how their growing conditions and harvest times are. We were invited to taste each variety of grape and "assess" the taste. He helped us along. It was so very cool. We could taste the difference in the grapes and then taste similar differences in the wine. We learned that by having the correct plot of ground for grape growing it could be done without pesticides or chemicals, and that is Paolo's way. Next we visited the olive groves. We saw trees that were 200 plus years old that were so cared for like children. The views of Umbria were spectacular from the olive grove. Next we learned how the products in the fields were turned into wine and olive oil and how the remnants of production were used as fertilizer in the fields. What a process. Machine to machine to press, and extract the olive oil and to ferment and age the wine. WOW, Who knew. I loved the learning. Now for the best part. We shared in food and wine with the other guests and Paolo and his family cared for our every need with plates of cheese, meats, and fruit, eggs, and bread, and olive oil and wine. As my father says, "it was a gustatory orgasm". The food was spectacular, the wine was superb, and the olive oil was far and away the best we have ever had. We left feeling full in our bellies, fully in our minds and the best part full and well cared for by an amazing man and his family. Thanks Paolo. You are a truly amazing man. David and Suzanne.
Absolutely incredible winery! We have visited many wineries across Tuscany but Montioni was so personal and the service, wines, and tour were amazing! We had a five course lunch that was delicious meats, pasta, and a savory pork. All prepared on site by family, it had a great touch. The wine is so smooth and some of the best I have had from the region. Prices are unbeatable and it truly is a great buy. Highly recommend their location, tour, and wines!!!
