We rented and apartment in Montepulciano for a month, and our favorite place ended up being the Gattavecchi Winery. It is one of the real wine cellars that is actually used in the town, and is not a commercial come-on -- you have to find...More
The family at this winery were incredibly hospitable, wine was fantastic (ordered a lot), and the cheese/meat paired with the wines were perfect! We will return any time we get the chance. Hint on parking in the city - go towards the back of the...More
Loved this place. Walk down a narrow alley to their restaurant where you eat outdoors. Great food and wine. We walked down in the cellar for a while while they were setting up the table (we had 8 of us)
Although the managers (owners?) and the staff are extremely nice, information regarding wine production and ageing provided during the short tour is scarce. For the tasting, I would expect something more than just providing the wines and letting the visitors taste them on their own...More

We wandered and shopped in Montepulciano until we hit the winery. It was a little cool up there! I knew I had hiked a mountain! We toured the winery on our own...I guess, a winery is a winery is a winery. However, the restaurant on...More
We headed to Gattavecchi to book dinner on a Sunday, but we were informed that they wouldn't be open for dinner. So we stayed for lunch. We ordered Chicken liver bruschetta (amazing), rabbit stew, wild boar stew, white beans and a mixed salad. We washed...More
