Orcia Valley Wine Route

Published in Tuscany Itineraries

Please send info on the following: The Orcia Valley Wine Route. Maria Teresa, Delaware, USA.

If you are looking for directions along the Orcia Valley Wine Route, make sure you ask for La Strada del Vino Orcia.

And don't forget that this is one to do by car, or at the very least by bike. We have witnessed pitiful sights of straggly people walking the Val d'Orcia between such towns as Radicofani and Castiglione d'Orcia.

Although the classic Tuscan scenery is stunning, the distances are huge and you will be baked like cotto toscano if you decide to hike it in summer. And how do you keep the wine at the right temperature?

Nobile di Montepulciano Wine Road

Published in Tuscany Itineraries

La Strada del Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is more than just a simple tourist route map.

If you follow it closely you'll realise that the very fine wine is just a suitable excuse for getting close to the food, culture, nature and historical attractions of this famous wine growing area in province of Siena.

Nevertheless, the wine producers, cellars, restaurants and cantinas are central to the experience.

There are 80 such stopping off points in a rural zone between the historical centre of Montepulciano and Montepulciano Stazione.

Montecucco Wine Route

Published in Tuscany Itineraries

Montecucco WinesLa Strada del Vino Montecucco or Montecucco wine road in south Tuscany is an interesting one. Not least because the road has recently added the suffix 'e dei sapori d'Amiata or 'and the flavours of Amiata' to its name, to indicate more precisely the territory of reference.

Strada Medicea dei Vini di Carmignano

Published in Tuscany Itineraries

The wine route of La Strada Medicea dei Vini di Carmignano is located in the province of Prato, west of the Autostrada del Sole between Florence and Rome and south of the autostrada connecting the Tuscan capital to the sea via Pistoia.

But if we tell you that this zone was first occupied by the Etruscans and later the Medici, then a reason to go there surely is.

The sweet rolling hills were always famed for the production of 'brillante Carmignano' wine, for its elegance, strong ruby red color and delicate, complex perfume.
