Wine design: the two souls of Montepulciano
The historic charm of a monumental cellar and the innovative design of an artistic winery
This tour will let you discover the two architectural souls of Montepulciano: on one hand the historic cellars in the old town center, testimony of a millenary tradition in wine sector, on the other the contemporary artistic wineries, wonderful examples of modern architecture applied to the wine world.
Countryside, city center, vineyards, wine cellars, wine and local products, all in one tour.
We will take you first to a modern winery located in Montepulciano countryside, where you will have a close look at the vineyards and learn the production processes of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano DOCG. After tasting the wines, you will go back to the old town center to visit an underground wine cellar.
