On our drive from Florence through Tuscany, we stopped at the Montechiaro vineyard for a wine tour and tasting. I highly recommend it! Alessandro Griccioli was a wonderful host and is very knowledgeable about the production and marketing of wine. The Griccioli family has lived on the property for years and were able to tell stories of the history of Tuscany and the change in their lifestyle over the years. This wine tour was the quintessential Tuscan experience and is a must if you travel to the Sienna area!
