The Val d’Orcia, or Valdorcia, is a region of Tuscany, central Italy, which extends from the hills south of Siena to Monte Amiata. Its gentle, cultivated hills are occasionally broken by gullies and by picturesque towns and villages such as Pienza (rebuilt as an “ideal town” in the 15th century under the patronage of Pope Pius II), Radicofani (home to the notorious brigand-hero Ghino di Tacco) and Montalcino (the Brunello di Montalcino is counted among the most prestigious of Italian wines). Its landscape has been depicted in works of art from Renaissance painting to modern photography.World Heritage SiteIn 2004 the Val d’Orcia was added to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites under these criteria: Criterion (iv): The Val d’Orcia is an exceptional reflection of the way the landscape was re-written in Renaissance times to reflect the ideals of good governance and to create an aesthetically pleasing pictures.Criterion (vi): The landscape of the Val d’Orcia was celebrated by painters from the Scuola Senese, which flourished during the Renaissance.

  • Beautiful property and such amazing people! We felt so welcomed and the wines were fantastic. A must see if you have the chance, cheers!  more »
  • Comprehensive service in one of the wine producers of this territory, staff and wonderful wines! to visit! Receive tourists "curious" on Saturday afternoon in "off season" is not for everyone, they do. Well done! Personal note: having purchased several bottles I'd appreciate not having to pay for the wine tasting, an elegance that would have awarded the highest rating in the review.

  • I live in Siena and I know Brunello very well. I brought my American girlfriend here and she loved it! It was an incredible and unique experience for both of us. She got to see how one of the best wines in the world is made and she'll have an amazing memory of Tuscany for the rest of her life. It was very interesting for me as well. Since I was born and grew up in Siena, I thought that I already knew the wine making process, but I saw and learned many new things I didn't know. Definitely a place worth visiting and a wine worth drinking!!! Absolutely our favorite Kamil and Kristin
  • Really interesting tasting!
  • Great organic Brunello wines with a great price. Only downside... the lady who was selling wines in the cantina wasn't pleasant at all. I don't know if it was because it was a late in the day or she was just a cold person but she obviously was having a hard time smiling and answering the questions we had. Bought lots of their Brunello and riserva though. Right next to Banfi and way better wines.
  • Excellent wine cellar, so it's limited to great company with wines of unquestionable quality, always attentive to their products, with the utmost professionalism and courtesy on the part of the sales staff to "detail"
