Day Trip 1 TUSCAN TOWNS, WINERY If one is intrigued by wine tastings, a day trip from Rome to Tuscan towns birthed in the Middle Ages, such as Pienza and Montepulciano, is wondrous. Also, a stop in Montalcino is a beautiful way to experience Italy's countryside. It features a jaunt to the Abbey of Sant'Antimo followed by a visit to a family farm and winery, Poggio Il Castellare. The winery tour includes a home-cooked meal with a sampling of the renowned Brunello di Montalcino red wine, one of about 70 Italian wines with the prestigious D.O.C.G. (Controlled and Guaranteed Designation of Origin) status. The Tuscan area of Montalcino features farm and winery Poggio Il Castellare (top, left) and the Abbey of Sant'Antimo.
