Our day starts with a walk throughout the town of Montepulciano.
Montepulciano is built along a narrow limestone ridge at 605 m above the sea level. The town is encircled by Medieval walls. Inside the walls, the streets are crammed with palaces and churches in Renaissance style designed by Antonio da Sangallo the Elder and other well-known architects of that time. The town is chiefly known for its excellent red wine Vino Nobile di Montepulciano.
After having seen the town, enjoy a visit to a typical wine farm of the area. Here the friendly owner, Susanna, will show you her vineyards and her small family wine cellar where she produces and ages high quality wines with a great passion -including the famous “Vino Nobile di Montepulciano”. She will explain you the interesting process of wine making.
Light lunch in Susanna’s nice tasting room, with a great view on the Tuscan countryside.
The light lunch is based on delicious local products accompanied by wines, such as “Rosso” and “Vino Nobile di Montepulciano”.
Afterwards, we move to a traditional oil mill where we will have the chance to see the entire process of production of the extra virgin olive oil and taste it.
NOTE: The visit to the oil mill can be substituted with the visit to Chiusi (with an extra charge for the local guide for the National Museum).
Around the 6th century BC Chiusi was one of the most powerful cities in the Etruscan league. All the remains found in the Etruscan tombs of the surrounding countryside can be seen at the National Etruscan Museum of Chiusi.
