The Sentiero del Vino Nobile [Nobile Path] is named after the Vino Nobile, which has its own exclusive production area on the territory of Montepulciano. It mainly runs downhill, so it is a path suitable for everyone, along the sides of the hills that are home to vineyards, olive groves, and cultivated fields. An experienced guide will accompany you from the departure (Piazza Sant’Agnese in Montepulciano) to the arrival (Lake Montepulciano). The route get firstly to the Temple of San Biagio, passes in front of the small country church of the Madonna della Querce, crosses the woods and the dirt tracks, along which the ruins of the old farmhouses rise, and then reach the Lake Montepulciano. Here, at the Nature Reserve, you will rest and replenish yourselves, enjoying a delicious Tuscan picnic. Return to the historic center by taxi.
