Not far down a country road from Montepulciano, then down a dusty road and past the "pine tree", you'll find the the quaint, somewhat rustic Agritourismo of La Falconara, guided from the birds eye view of the 2nd floor by the owners, Alex and Ingrid. With the complete knowledge of 100+ kilometers in any direction, Alex can direct you to the incredible sights and fabulous restaurants. Surrounded by vineyards and olive orchards the secluded hilltop location touts a phenominal view from the edge of the swimming pool.
Then there is of course the wine. The best local wines we tasted in the Montepulciano region. We brought 2 bottles back to California to share. If you can't arrange a stay at La Falconara at least arrange to visit and buy their wines.
