The Cantina DEI offers wonderful tours but of course also quality wines, olive oil and grappa. Located near Montepulciano, it can be reached well after or before a tour in the medieval city.
The fields of the Cantina Boscarelli are at an altitude of 300 m above sea level, in the north-east of Montepulciano towards the Val di Chiana. Excellent thermal ventilation favors its microclimate.
For those who wish, Poliziano offers well-prepared tastings of their wines. They offer you the opportunity to see and touch the grapes plants of their most prestigious vineyards.
Immersed in the rolling hills of the magical Tuscan countryside, the Avignonesi winery offers a wide range of activities during the summer. They also offer this exceptional opportunity to get on a hot air balloon to see their fields and Tuscany from above.
The Redi cellar is characterized by its rustic style and its typical Tuscan cuisine.
Already since the Renaissance, the Contucci family cultivated the vine. They are considered among the “putative fathers” of the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano (document of 1773). Their historic cellars are worth visiting.
In search of a perfect symbiosis with nature, the Bindella winery welcomes you with pleasure for a walk in the vineyards, a visit to the winery and to taste their wines.
