Montalcino

Montalcino, the lone hill between the Val d'Orcia

(a UNESCO World Heritage Site since July 2004) and the Valle dell’Ombrone where rivers of the same name run through the valleys. Montalcino provides the perfect location for trail running; big climbs and descents as well as steep trails from its highest point at 680 m.a.s.l. to its lowest at 120 m.a.s.l. through the woods, which cover about 50% of the territory, vineyards, and the famous Sienese hills, marked by numerous paths, mule tracks, cartroads, and historical pilgrim and trade routes like the Francigena and the Maremmana.

Even the time of year that was chosen is no coincidence. Forging the connection to the Consorzio del Brunello di Montalcino, the event will take place on the weekend prior to Benvenuto Brunello (the presentation of the latest vintage of Brunello di Montalcino released on the market that year), the second Sunday in February, guaranteeing the right weather conditions for authentic trail races!

WINERY TOURS AND OTHER OUTINGS IN MONTALCINO

A magical territory, which varies in its many forms: the different sides of the Montalcino hill slowly roll into the enchanting Val d’Orcia, to the bottom of Monte Amiata and to the plains leading to the sea on the other side. Harmonious rolling hills with soft elevations that alternate between olive groves, vineyards and fields of wheat. Small plots of land topped with isolated farmhouses, majestic castles, little country churches surrounded by their hamlets: this is the land of Brunello Crossing, dominated by the medieval town of Montalcino. If you run with us, you will enjoy all this in addition to the best that this territory produces, which make it an absolutely outstanding place the world over.

Exclusively for Brunello Crossing participants and their family members and friends, the chance to live moments that only Montalcino can offer: a truly unique sensorial experience, a type of tourism that is timeless and that gives the best it has to offer in every season.

 

WINERY TOURS

Wine is without a doubt one of the top products from Montalcino as it is known, valued and exported all over the world.

On a winery tour, you can be immersed in the authentic traditions of this land, meet wine producers, experience the aromas of the wine that change over the four seasons and, finally, get a taste of history in a glass right inside the places that best interpret the Italian winemaking tradition.

Tours include a brief description of the winemaking process – agricultural and enological – that lead up to the final product, a tour of the vinification and ageing cellars and a wine tasting featuring the vintages chosen by the wineries often accompanied by other typical local products.

It is a wonderful opportunity for you to discover the enchanting world of wine and to meet the winemakers in person.
