Widely renowned for its rich Brunello wine, the Val d'Orcia region of Tuscany was designed in Renaissance times to be one of the world's most aesthetically pleasing and untouched landscapes. Added to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites in 2004, the countryside is depicted by many famous painters and is featured in movies such as The English Patient and Under the Tuscan Sun. Our residences, just south of Siena, are surrounded by world-renowned vineyards and picturesque towns such as Montepulciano and Montalcino.
The Chianti region of Tuscany is famous for its ancient villages, mountainous terrain, and of course, Chianti Classico wine.

At the Monterinaldi winery in Chianti, learn to prepare homemade pasta and other traditional Tuscan dishes, like ancient soups, tasty sauces, simple sides, main courses, and desserts. While you’re there, enjoy tasting Monterinaldi wines along with homemade bread—or Schiacciata.
