Tour Details

On the border between Tuscany and Umbria, Montepulciano and Cortona are enchanting small hilltop towns. Montepulciano blends medieval roots, elegant Renaissance buildings, hyper photogenic corners and stunning panoramas onto the Val d’Orcia and Valdichiana. Cortona is another gem, a lovely town to stop by for a stroll, do some shopping in the many antiques shops, to seat in piazza for a coffee or a spritz. Montepulciano, as well as Cortona, have a strong and long wine-making tradition and sit in two extraordinary wine districts. We’ll drive you to two family run boutique wineries and you’ll have the chance to get to know better their two flagship reds, the Nobile di Montepulciano and Cortona’s Syrah.

Note that if you are based in and around Siena, the tour is around 9 hours long. If your accommodation is in Florence, i twill take 10 hours.
