The cook that we had arranged was a great success. What a wonderful formula, thanks for the tip !!

Wine tasting with Sylvia

Join Sylvia during her Food and Wine experience 

In Montepulciano are many wineries that all offer the excellent Vino Nobile di Montepulciano wine. One of the oldest wineries is the Gattavecchi winery. Until today a family business and located on the outskirts of Montepulciano. A visit with Sylvia to this winery will certainly be the icing on the cake when you visit Montepulciano. 

Read here the feedback her guests have left.

Or are you a sporty person and would you like to go for a walk with Sylvia (8 km) in Montepulciano? She also organises a Run and Wine experience.

E-bike tours in Montepulciano and Spello

Discover Umbria and Tuscany by e-bike

Both in Montepulciano in Tuscany and in Spello in Umbria you can rent good-quality E-bikes. You can also register for organised, themed tours. Make a choice for a day not by the pool and not visiting a city, but exploring the area sportively. 

Go out together in an unspoilt landscape, with or without a local guide. 

Give it a try, even less trained people will get to the top of the Italian hills on an E-bike.

Wine tasting or truffle hunting at the Chiesa del Carmine estate

Visit this tranquil estate in the green Umbrian hills

At the Chiesa del Carmine wine estate one can pass by for a wine tasting and in some periods of the year one can reserve a day to join the local truffle hunter. You will not be disappointed, nit by the quality of their wines, nor by the foraging experience with the truffle hunter.

Read our blog about the Chiesa del Carmine estate.

Umbria in Vespa
