Wine in Montepulciano

Montepulciano is known for its wine. You can find many different bottles with the Montepulciano name. It is a full bodied dry red wine. In this city there are many enotecas to taste the wine. Again this is a small mountain town high on a hill. You park in lots on the edge of town and walk in. The streets are, you guessed it, narrow and many turn into stairs. This is the nature of a hill town.

Wine Tasting Room

The streets and the piazza are medieval. They are best enjoyed by walking around them and stopping at a bar or ristorante to watch the people. Montepulciano is near Siena, our next stop for two nights.

One thought on “Wine in Montepulciano

  1. I have not visited Montepulciano but it reminds me of other delightful hilltop towns that I have been to.
