Montepulciano is well known as the homeland of Vino Nobile, however, you will discover that it also produces an equally noteworthy oil. There are several oil mills here, one in the center and others in the hamlets. Following the ridge and moving slightly north, you'll find a small village known as the "place of oil". We are talking about Castelmuzio, a very small faction of the very small municipality of Trequanda. To get there, you encounter many curves and ups and downs. Here, everything is dedicated to oil and the most representative flavors of the Sienese territory. Seeing is believing.
Finally, it would be worthwhile to come here just for this, to see for yourself how oil is made, taking children to see firsthand how these mysterious fruits are harvested, then exploring their processing in the incessantly active oil mills of the Valdichiana Senese.
