    I will guide you to one of the oldest wineries in the world, Cantina Contucci, which is located right at the top of the Renaissance town of Montepulciano, in Piazza Grande. Among the spectacular vaults carved into the rock (on which rests Palazzo Contucci built in the sixteenth century by Antonio Da Sangallo), you will have the opportunity to walk along the corridors to the sides of which are the barrels where rests the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Docg, produced with Prugnolo Gentile, Canaiolo Nero and Mammolo grapes.

    After the visit we will have the chance to taste three wines produced by the winery:

    • Bianco della Contessa Igt;
    • Rosso di Montepulciano Doc;
    • Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Docg.

    At the end of the tasting we will move by car to the countryside, among vineyards, where we will have lunch on a tablecloth laid on the grass under the shadow of an ancient oak.


    • Mixed Tuscan cold cuts (salami, ham and capocollo);
    • Bruschetta with tomato;
    • Baked pasta;
    • Montepulciano plum jam tart.

    *Menu accompanied by Rosso di Montepulciano Docg and natural/sparkling water.

    Alternative menu for vegetarians:

    Pecorino di Pienza (fresh, not aged); Bruschetta with tomato; Baked pasta with seasonal vegetables; Montepulciano plum jam tart.

    *Menu accompanied by Rosso di Montepulciano Docg and natural/sparkling water.

    Morena's Reviews

    Morena speaks English well and was well prepared for the cooking class. When we arrived, there was a 15 minute introduction, and Morena gave us a sheet of paper with the ingredients and measurements for the recipes written down, as well as the steps to preparing the recipe. We soon began the class with the dessert, followed by two different pasta dishes. All of the ingredients used were fresh, nothing canned or frozen, and the sauces were prepared from scratch. Morena had already prepared a station where we would be working, with all of the ingredients ready for us to use. We started cooking at 10am and finished punctually 3 hours later, then we spent the rest of the time enjoying the feast outdoors while having a pleasant conversation with Morena about Italy.
