My local Italian friends who live in Tuscany let me in on a little secret. While busloads of tourists are hauled to Montepulciano and Pisa every day to visit big glittering commercial wineries that are specifically designed for tourists, they completely ignore some of the best local wineries that are just a stone’s throw from downtown Florence.
In this article, we will look at 21 of the very best wineries in Montepulciano, highlighting their best wines, breathtaking views, wine production style, and inviting tasting rooms.
We will also showcase other local products such as extra virgin olive oil, of which many local producers offer free tastings.
If you’re searching for the best wineries in Chianti, this is the only article you will ever need on the topic.
While recently planning a trip to the Chianti Classico wine region of Tuscany, I reached out to my dear Italian friend Vera Sarzano, who lives in the heart of this beautiful part of Italy.
