Montalcino

The Montalcino and Brunello museum is now open 6 days a week

Here are a few images that the Barbi blogger snapped recently at the Montalcino and Brunello Museum, which is now open 6 days a week (previously, you had to reserve to visit the museum and it was only open for scheduled tours and appointments).

The museum is open every day but Wednesday.

The exhibits cover the history of Montalcino, before and after the founding of the Brunello consortium in 1967, including the artisan industries that employed most residents until the Brunello boom of the 1990s.

For those visiting Montalcino for the first time or those who wish to gain a deeper knowledge of the rich traditions and heritage of Montalcino and the Orcia River Valley, it’s a truly invaluable resource.
