This is your private day of discovery in Montepulciano.
First, the town perched on a hilltop. Medieval and Renaissance buildings huddle together in disorderly fashion. Think reddish stone walls, ceramic tile roofs, and narrow streets where no cars will disturb you.
Wander at your leisure. Explore the 8th-century castle, and contemplate a beautiful golden triptych inside the cathedral.
Then, the wine. In a wine estate nearby, you will learn all about the winemaking process, taste the famous Montepulciano Nobile, and try local specialties. And you will discover a new depth to the art of pairing food and wine.
