Vin Santo Tour - TRIP CODE: WFMONT05
Vin Santo, or “Holy Wine”, is the most traditional sweet wine produced in Tuscany. The production of this dessert wine starts with the drying process right after the harvest. Therefore, October is the perfect time of the year to enjoy a very special winery tour and discover such a typical Tuscan wine!
Visit a winery renowned for its excellent Vin Santo, which also makes a very rare red Vin Santo with Sangiovese grapes. Join a wine tour that includes a visit to its gorgeous appassitoio (“drying room”) and traditional vinsantaia (“Vin Santo ageing cellar”). Then, have a taste of premium wines followed by a glass of the precious Vin Santo.
After the winery visit, have a casual lunch in a wine bar with a gorgeous view on the vineyards. Then, reach Montepulciano to explore the historical cellars dug into the tuff and to have a relaxing walk through the narrow medieval streets and alleys.
