The Montecucco Wine Road

 

 

We will depart from Le Macinaie Lodge in direction Arcidosso. After a ride through the medieval centre we’ll go on in direction Monticello Amiata. After about 13 Km we’ll reach the village Monticello Amiata where is possible to rest and stock up on water.

We’ll continue riding down and after about 3 Km we’ll take the white road that goes through the beautiful olive trees and wheat fields and reaches the Montecucco d.o.c. vineyards. The sight is outstanding! After few Kilometres we'll reach Castel Porrona, very interesting to visit.

After a rest we’ll continue to Montenero d’Orcia. After reaching the top of the village we’ll visit the vine & wine museum and Frantoio Franci (olive oil production). Just one more Km and we’ll arrive at Azienda Agricola Perazzeta, here is possible to taste local products.
