2006 Trip - Italy - Tuscany - Fattoria dei Barbi

Sunday 5-28-06

This was our last full day in Montalcino. We slept in, so we weren't ready to get going until almost noon. We had walked to Fattoria dei Barbi earlier in the week, but today we drove right down the road to the winery, one of the original producers of brunello in Tuscany.

We did a tasting of their wines and olive oils and tried to have lunch there on the terrace. Nope! We should have made reservations - they were fully booked.

The grounds were beautiful, though, so we enjoyed walking around and exploring.

We then headed up to Montalcino to find a bite to eat. Believe it or not, we are getting pretty good at finding our way around the area - we even picked the right exit off the roundabout to get back home. Lots of shops were closed because it was Sunday.

Isn't it amazing how much easier it is to get around once you have the 'hang' of the area! All those hours getting lost pay off eventually!
