Travel Italy 2016 – Montalcino & Lunch at Fattoria dei Barbi

Here’s a walk around Montalcino, home of the famous Brunello wine!

I loved this shop, Sartoria Principe, with amazing handmade ladies clothing and accessories. Here’s a great website with a feature about the store and Montalcino:

Next up, lunch at Fattoria dei Barbi just a few minutes away from town…We started with a wine tasting before moving to the outdoor patio for lunch.

Look at this lovely presentation! Good wine, good food…

Time to journey back to Montepulciano and Villa Mazzi for a nap! But first, a stop on the way back through Montalcino at our favorite liquor store, bd Enoteca, for a few bottles.

The winding way home… Don’t expect to get anywhere fast in Tuscany!

Back to our lovely view of Montepulciano from Villa Mazzi to unwind!
