My wife Hirae and I spent a fine June week at Ortaglia enjoying the warm hospitality of Terenzio and his staff. On our first evening they prepared a barbeque feast for six guests including ourselves and we truly felt as though we were guests in their own home. We samples some of Ortaglio's fine wines including its Vino Nobile. The following day Terenzio took us on a minibus tour of some of his favourite sites in the region including Bagno Vignoni; the beautiful Romanesque Abbey San Antimo where we caught the monks Gregorian chant; S. Quirico d'Ocia; Pienza; an amazing lunch a his favourite spo; and a private tasting visit to a winery in Montalcino. Terenzio is a very informed guide with a knowledge of the development of church architecture. Ortaglia is well located and our hot days exploring Tuscany were rewarded with a late afternoon cooling swim in the pool that overlooks Montepulciano and the Ortaglia vineyards.
In the cool of the evening as darkness fell we enjoyed a magical show of lights from the host of fireflies dancing through the vines. Ortaglia is an experience not to be missed and we will return one day.
