-THE BRUNELLO EXPERIENCE-
With a sommelier
MONTALCINO - TUSCANY
"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."
Wine & Me
MEET SOMMELIER ALEXANDRA ADAMEK
I am a certified sommelier
and social anthropologist living in Montalcino. My life was not always in wine. I've spent a decade working for Humanitarian Projects across the world which taught me the importance of local cultures, sustainable agriculture and the authenticity of products.
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
My past work as a humanitarian researcher helped me to understand that there is an interconnection between all people on the planet. This led me to unite my two passions in life, wine and social causes.
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.
LED BY A SOMMELIER
Select Tasting offers bespoke private wine experiences in the Montalcino area, always guided by a certified sommelier.
A wine tour with a qualified professional is very different from one led by a tour operator. New doors are opened for our clients because of Select Tasting's direct relationships with the cantinas. This will guarantee you a unique familial experience at the most prestigious wineries of Montalcino.
Immerse yourself in the passion for the terroir and enhance your senses of sight, smell, and taste by enjoying exceptional Brunello and other Montalcino wines direct from the source.
Wine Club Brunello & Collector's Selections
Club Brunello is a subscription-based program while Collector’s Shop is a pop-up store activated few times a year.
I personally search and select only a limited number of amazing wines for our exclusive collections. I visit all the vineyards and taste from barrel through to bottle along with the winemakers, so you are sure to receive authentic and terroir-driven wines that are hard to find elsewhere.
Your wines will always be delivered in the most professional way: temperature controlled, secure, from the wine cellar direct to your door.
