This morning we travel through the grape growing regions stopping at the picture perfect city of Pienza, where sheep dot the valley floor and Pecorino is made from their milk. Here we will taste those cheeses, and a variety of Balsamic Vinegars.
Next we go on to the vineyard Perazzeta, where Alessandro Bocci makes award winning olive oil and wine. A passionate man, he names his wines after those he loves most: his daughter Sara and his wife Rita. After a tasting and a tour, Sara and Rita will prepare a delightful lunch in the wine cellar! Returning to your hotel, we stop at the 12th century Abbey of Sant'Antimo, a beautiful Romanesque church in a picture-perfect setting just south of Montalcino.
