Planning to be in town for new years eve for 6 days, we are staying at a farm house outside of Montepulciano. Just how cold should I expect it to be??? Bone Chilling? I spent a week there in august, will everything be open as it was then. Do most of the businesses, restaurants, shops, wineries and tours still remain open in the winter?? We are spending Christmas in Rome, then Siena, Umbria and finally Montepulciano. I want to be able to visit the different wineries, and cheese farms in the area. Any info on winter In Tuscany would be appreciated. I know it is not the best time, but only time our schedule permits.
