We stayed with Alex and Ingrid for a week. The weather was cool but the hospitality provided by Alex and Ingrid could not have been warmer. Alex took the time to provide us a lesson on wine, olive oil, the vine yard and all the fine things Italian. He gave us great advice on off the beaten path villages and places to visit. Alex even gave us a cooking lesson including fresh pasta, sage and his homemade tomato sauce. We loved walking around Montepulciano and driving the back roads getting from place to place. Alex and Ingrid are worth the trip to Montepulciano.
