They say Avignonesi produces a sweet wine which is famous all over the world for its “nectar of the Gods” characteristic. So what better way to enjoy our wines.

Get onboard a hot air balloon ride and view the estate from the sky. Sunrise in Tuscany is magical and this is a great way to see the area and the unique vineyards Avignonesi owns.

Descend back to earth and have an exclusive brunch prepared by our winery chefs followed by a private tour of the estate with one of our knowledgeable guides before finally tasting our wines.

The tour is managed in partnership with “Ballooning in Tuscany”.

How does it work?

You will take off from the Avignonesi estate in the early morning for a 60 minutes flight (approximately) over the winery. Admire La Stella and La Tonda vineyards, catch a glimpse of ‘ordinary life’ in Montepulciano and Cortona. Land and your personal driver will get you back to the winery. All is included in the activity.

Once back at the estate enjoy an amazing brunch in our veranda with breathtaking views followed by a private tour of the vineyards, Vinsantaia (Vin Santo ageing room) and underground barrique corridor. All topped by a tasting of our top wines. End this on the sweet notes of our Vin Santo!
