... to drive the Val d'Orchia or Valley of Gold. first a visit to Montalchino and the Fortezza. Liam loved climbing the old castle ramparts and explaining battle techniques to us. The best part is the Fortezza is also an enoteca - a wine bar where you can sample the wines before you buy or just have a glass of expensive wine.
