Description

A wonderful and exclusive daily excursion of about 10 km around the town of Montalcino that will allow you to immerse yourself in the beautiful vineyards of the surrounding countryside and to savor the traditions of these unspoiled surroundings. In the morning a driver will pick you up at your hotel to take you to the starting point, the marvelous fortress of Montalcino, built in 1361, modified during the centuries, but still practically intact today. Here you will meet a qualified environmental guide, who will accompany you on this trek along a circular route in the homeland of the famous Brunello wine with historical and naturalistic insights into the territory of Montalcino, its wine and its ancient traditions. After passing through the city, we will start this beautiful excursion; the itinerary will not present great difficulties, we will walk for about 10 km on well kept white roads, with also a short segment of asphalt road. Along the way it will be possible to stop for a picnic in the open air, among the rows of vineyards, in full rural style. The last stretch, which will bring us back to Montalcino will be uphill, but with a breathtaking view of the surrounding valleys, including the famous Crete Senesi and Val D’Orcia. The photos you can take here will most likely end up on your computer’s screensaver. Once you arrive in Montalcino, there will be a visit to a historic local winery, where you can relax and taste the famous Brunello and Rosso wines. At the end of the tasting, the driver will take you back to your hotel.
