My house is just in the Val d’Orcia, this is a region of Tuscany, which extends from the hills south of Siena to Monte Amiata . In 2004 the Val d’Orcia was added to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.
Its gentle, cultivated hills are occasionally broken by gullies and by picturesque towns and villages. My house is nearby Montalcino. The Brunello di Montalcino is counted among the most prestigious of Italian wines
