The Winery, Season 1, Episode 4, Velona Castle, Resort Thermal SPA & Winery in Tuscany, Italy

A stop-over in Montalcino is a must for all lovers of Brunello di Montalcino, one of the most famous wines in the world. Thanks to the dry climate and to the hillside location, the vines grow in the best conditions sheltered by Mount Amiata to the south. Now it’s time for us to taste some Brunello wine and to get a closer look at Castello di Velona winery. According to the experts, their vineyards yield the best products due to the exposure to the sun, the ventilation and the altitude.
