Cugisi Cheese Farm
Via della Boccia 8, Montepulciano
Tuscany is as renowned for its wine as it is for its Pecorino, and perhaps no cheese farm does it better than Cugusi. You can tour the dairy, meet the sheep, or cut to the chase and just stock up from the store. Whatever you buy, you’ll wish you bought more. “This famed cheesemaker also offers a picnic-basket service with products from its farm,” says Voigtmann. “It’s the perfect way to enjoy a picnic overlooking Montepulciano.”
Podere Le Ripi
Località Le Ripi, Montalcino
“The drive alone is worth the visit to this stunningly positioned organic Brunello producer—and then there’s the wine,” says Voigtmann. This is a biodynamic vineyard in Montalcino that boasts some of the best Rosso di Montalcino in all of Montalcino. Amore & Magia (“love and magic”) is as lovely as the name suggests, and Sebastian is always happy to help you ship a few cases home. If you can, tour the cantina—you can’t believe anyone could do this with bricks.
