DESCRIPTION


Val d’Orcia it is considered to be the most beautiful countryside in the world and accordingly has received UNESCO’s World Heritage listing, the first rural zone to be awarded such recognition. The beauty of the landscape features the whole territory production of the Orcia wine, that changes from the lunar landscape of the Crete Senesi to the rows of cypress on gentle hills with castles, abbeys, farm and medieval villages, centuries old olive trees and vines, and fields of grain alternating with pastures.

The appellation Orcia was born February 14, 2000 in-between the older and more famous of the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and the Brunello di Montalcino. In this artisanal context with its long standing tradition is how the project “Orcia il vino più bello del mondo” is born, with the objective to transform the tourist present on the territory into consumers, estimator and propagators of Orcia Wine. And there are two new proposals included in the project: “Wineries with a view” and “Wine trekking”.

The “Strada del Vino Orcia” was born in 2003 and had its office at the Rocca a Tentennano in Castiglione d’Orcia. Winery tours await you, tighter with tours of vineyards and wine tasting accompanied by bruschette with Extra Vergin Olive Oil, tasty local chess and cold meats. For those who would like to experience the atmosphere in the wineries of the Strada del Vino Orcia during the grape harvest, these are the ideal places. It is also possible to try the wines at wine bars and restaurant when visiting the artistic town of the Doc Orcia area or go shopping in the artisans workshop.
