Ortaglia - Where we stayed in Tuscany

Ortaglia, a 16th century farmhouse near Montepulciano. The farm was a working vineyard. The house had been restored by its owner under supervision of the government. Learn more about Ortaglia.

Arbor where table grapes are grown. It's early spring and there are no vines yet.

Montepulciano grape vines on trellises in the Ortaglia vineyard. The wine produced here is called Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. A bottle of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, a chunk of locally produced cheese and a loaf of bread often served as our evening meal.
