Cantina di Montalcino

A New Tradition

Product ID: 300
Description

About 5 km from Montalcino, Cantina di Montalcino is located just in front of the hillock of the little medieval town: it is surrounded by beautiful Brunello vineyards along the extraordinary path of the Eroica.
The winery has been recently restructured, with a modern architectural project which aimed to keep the winery in touch with the surrounding landscape.
Visitors have the possibility to make an all-round experience into the wine world to observe, share and understand Cantina di Montalcino's passion. 100 farmers, members of the winery, 395 acres producing 10/12 mil q of grapes, 20,000 hl stock capacity and a quantity of 500,000 bottles of Brunello and Rosso di Montalcino can give you an idea of the winery activity.
The vinification room is crossed by a spectacular wood bridge. In a quiet area underground, far from noise and light contamination, the wine rests and refines in oak barrels and barriques: here temperature and humidity are constantly checked on and kept on stable values.
It is also possible to visit some vineyards, by an off-road vehicle - if the weather is fine and with advance notice.
Please note:
Upon request, the winery offers special guided tours with an agronomist that will accompany the wine...

Please note:
Upon request, the winery offers special guided tours with an agronomist that will accompany the wine tourist to discover some selected vineyards in each of the 4 sectors in which Brunello area is divided (with different pedoclimatic characteristics): an unordinary tour on foot, or by bike, or also by an off-road vehicle, even during harvest time. 
A striking tour from the vineyards to the winery: a stunning wood bridge crosses the vinification room from side to side, going down to the undergrond floor where 80 barrels and 2,000 barriques are stored. Besides, during harvest time, with the assistance of an expert it is also possible to wear the typical uniform of the wine cellar operator, to follow closely the grapes delivery and the processes that lead to wine making. Service biking area and a big parking space are available, also for camper vans.After the tour, the wine tasting takes place in the wine shop, where the tourists can also find typical products of the area (oil, honey) or, for bigger groups (no more than 50 people) in the barrels room.
