Oct 25, 2014 After a great breakfast, we headed out today to visit Montepulchiano,....another hillside town. We've been here before, but this time was different. For one thing it was cold.

A small museum is attached showing some history of wine making and olive oil presses. We sample some bread with olive oil and the lady asks if we want to try wild boar salami.
