Siena Vineyards & Wineries

     Your trip to Siena wouldn't be completed without a couple of bottles of Chianti, the best-known Italian wine, which comes exactly from splendid towns and villages near Siena. Brunello di Montalcino, Vin Santo, Chianti Classico and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano all of these mythical wines hail from this lovely region. Visit Montepulciano and Montalcino, the Renaissance dream-city of Pienza, the beautiful Val d'Orcia, the great monasteries and the enchanting spa-villages such as Saturnia and Bagno Vignoni, and of course stop by on wineries for the wine to die for.
