Full description
Starting with pickup from your hotel in the morning, you will travel first to Brunello, a boutique family-run winery and one of the most famous in the area. There you will enjoy tastings of some high-quality wines on site.

Following that, travel to the second winery for some tastings before visiting the town of Pienza, which is known as the "Pearl of Valdorcia". In Pienza, you will enjoy a cheese tasting of the local "Pecorino", which is the best cheese of the area. You can become familiar with its many different flavors, including the decadent truffle flavor. As you sample these cheese, you can also delight in the view from the panoramic terrace and the beauty of this small village, which was built in a Renaissance style.

In the early afternoon, explore the village of Montepulciano. You'll make your way to an underground winery cellar, where you will enjoy a delicious lunch of local products paired with in-house wines. Following lunch, you will be returned back to your accommodation.
