Montalcino, Pienza and Montepulciano food and wine tour from Siena
Fancy a day among art, culture, wine and delicious food in fabled Tuscany? Join us for a single day visit to wonderful cities where you will have the opportunity to taste the best wines, cheeses and typical products. The tour begins with a visit to a cellar in Montalcino where you will taste a sampling of wines coupled with delicious snacks that showcase local bounty.
During the afternoon, an expert tour leader will show you around Montalcino, a charming village surrounded by a Medieval fortress, followed by Pienza and Montepulciano, two artistic jewels set against the backdrop of the spectacular Val d’Orcia. Pienza, which boasts a perfect balance of architectural beauty and sweeping vistas, is home to series of quaint, atypically named lanes that overlook the breathtaking Val d’Orcia landscape.
The region’s natural and artistic heritage is enhanced by mouthwatering aromas and flavors, most notably Pienza’s prized Pecorino cheese, a centuries-old practice. The tour ends with a stop in Montepulciano, characterized by stately Renaissance buildings, beautifully refined churches and an ancient winemaking tradition. Sample the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano at a local winery.
