PART 1 OF WALK: MONTEPULCIANO TO MONTICCHIELLO
Meet your guide in Pizza Grande in Montepulciano where we will meet for an espresso and introductions before our journey. We will start out on the paved road of the village which will quickly become gravel heading to our first agriturismo for a tasting of wine and local products from their farm and to pick up some "good luck" from their land. A few moments down the road we reach the village of Monticchiello.
