Select Tasting


With the sommelier

"Great wines please the senses, but truly special wines offer an emotional experience that awakens a new level of understanding and appreciation.

Select Tasting exists to bring that experience to you."

Alexandra Adamek


Wine & Me


I am a certified sommelier 

and social anthropologist living in Montalcino. My life was not always in wine. A decade spent working for Humanitarian Projects across the world taught me the importance of local cultures, sustainable agriculture and the authenticity of products and experiences.

Wine has always been my passion

which I've now been fortunate enough to turn into my profession. Fifteen years ago I moved to Tuscany where I became a certified AIS sommelier, Montalcino resident and a member of the local wine community, founding my company

Select Tasting.


Life is a series of experiences 

and I believe that they are best appreciated when shared with others. Whether it is a glass of wine we enjoy together, a bottle I suggest,

or a winery we visit, they must be in line

with my life philosophy: 

the highest of quality, and healthy for both us and the planet. 

Join our worldwide Brunello community.



Wine Tours


Select Tasting offers bespoke private wine experiences in the Montalcino area, always led by a certified sommelier. 

A wine tour with a wine professional is very different from a wine tour with a tour operator.

Immerse yourself in the passion for the terroir and enhance your senses of sight, smell, and taste.  Enjoy exceptional Brunello and other Montalcino wines.  Learn how to pair food and wine.

Join the club and you'll always receive authentic and terroir-driven wines that are hard to find elsewhere. I personally search, taste, and select only a limited and exclusive range for Club Brunello.
