The tour is developed starting from the major cities of Tuscany.
In this type of tour we have the opportunity to visit two farms producing the famous Nobile Montepulciano DOCG wine in the area of Montepulciano, in Val D’orcia and Val di Chiana countryside (Siena), where we will view the winery and wine tasting with samples in the first (before to arrive in the second winery, you can visit the small Town of Montepulciano ) and in the second light lunch.
The visit to the second winery is a journey through time and history: here there is the very essence of the sweet land of Tuscany, the wine, which already cared, worshiped and consumed in joy and in joy, with passion and tenacity of our distant ancestors, the Etruscans, a few centuries before the Christian era.
The "De 'Ricci winery" is a wonderful place and unique in His genere , where inside, we can admire a fantastic intact Etruscan cave, entirely preservated, dated IV century B.C.
The monumental Cantina de' Ricci is One of the oldest and most beautiful wine cellars in the world.
