Have the Best Wine Experience in Tuscany
One of the best ways to enjoy a great wine experience in Tuscany is to go to a farm, vineyard, or winery. This is why many Italian wine producers and vineyards are located in Tuscany.
The area has been a favorite destination for wine travelers for over two thousand years and has slowly but surely built a reputation as one of the best wine regions in the entire world. The typical Tuscany vacation will begin in Florence where the famous Duomo, the town hall, is situated.
From there you can take a train ride to Pienza, where you can tour the art Deco style buildings and street after street of beautiful architecture and art. You will then proceed to Val d’Orcia, one of the most important wine regions in Tuscany with its abundance of vineyards and quaint villages.
One of the best things about visiting Tuscany is that you can visit each of the vineyards at your own pace. For example, you may decide to tour the Val d’Orcia winery during lunch, then go back to the hotel for dinner and then tour another winery before retiring for the night.
Tuscany can also be considered an off-the-beaten-path wine experience. Most off-the-beaten-track wine experiences include small independent producers or those family-owned small businesses that produce small quantities of wine.
Unlike some major Italian wine regions, Tuscany has a lower population that consumes a high volume of wine every year. Tuscany’s wine is still highly sought after by connoisseurs, especially those who frequent the many restaurants and diners throughout the region.
You may even find a Tuscany villa with an attached wine cellar that will allow you the pleasure of sharing a glass of wine with your family and friends!
