The cellars that produce the excellent wine on the territory of Montalcino are numerous. We could never named them all. There are some we enjoy again and again the pleasure of a wine tour with. They all propose special wine tour, full of history and emotions. All can be found and tried while enjoying a handcraft traditional Toscan meal at our restaurant La Vecchia Posta.

Let’s dig in and see who are those wineries, special to us.

We have particular affinity for the family-run winery “Nostra Vita” located 5 minutes away from Montalcino. Driving by a truly artitic mind, the owners have created a very special atmosfere and collaborate with artist from all other the world. They produce around 10 000 bottles a year, so very little for a winery in Montalcino. That allow them to have great control and handmake most of the process, from the fields decorated with art up to the “imbotigliamento” – the wine bottling process. Their wine is said to be part of the best.

In the cute village of Montalcino itself you can find many wine bars and wine seller.
Many are familly run business and know very well the region.

Bolsignano winery, also a family run winery, produces Rosso and Brunello di Montalcino in respect of the tradition and the surrounding nature. They cultivate around 3 ha (7,5 acres) of land and care for about 10 ha (28 acre) of forest. The friendlyness of Sara, the mother of the familly, makes for a great wine tasting, far away from any pompous mise en scène. A truly unique Italian wine tasting.

We also like Ciacci Piccolomini wines. They offer beautiful wine tasting and visit to their cellar. They are very well organised and their sommelier skillful. We like to reccomend them to the guests of our Relais in Bagno Vignoni thermal medieval village.

The good Montalcino wine is born in the vineyard and grows in the cellar. Two fundamental moments treated professionally and with great passion by the Solaria winery. A wine tour not to miss.

In the heart of the Val d’Orcia, just 5 km from S.Quirico d’Orcia and Bagno Vignoni, Poggio al Vento farmhouse and winery offers wines and extra virgin olive oils tastings.
