    Ciao Twoverlees,

    I believe that as long as you drive through the Val d'Orcia area, from Montepulciano to Montalcino, in a leisurely fashion you should most definitely enough the beauty and wonderful products that the area offers, wine being only one of it.

    Remember if you're driving to be careful - you can't do too many wine tastings and get behind the wheel!

    Generally, the enotecas will allow you to sample a wider variety of labels. In Montepulciano, the Enoteca for the Consorzio del Vino Nobile is actually a great place to do wine tastings of ALL of the region's wine producers that belong to the consortium -- one way to sample various wines without having to drive to each and every one on your list. You can buy all of the member's wines there - no appointment needed. It is right in Piazza Grande.

    Some more suggestions in the area:
    Tenuta Valdipiatta (www.valdipiatta.it)
    Podere Le Berne (www.leberne.it)
    La Bandita e Lunadoro (www.lunadoro.com).

    Let me think on the other ones for Montalcino and Chianti -- I think Donna has a few suggestions for small prodcuers in Chianti near Greve, let's see if she posts.
    In the meantime, also check out the ones we recommend on here:
