To discover the typical features of the Cortona Wines Trail, we suggest following this itinerary, starting from the Museum of Rural Culture in Fratticiola, which conserves historic carts and tools and traces the history of rural culture in the area. Indeed, in the surrounding countryside, you can visit the pig farm and a salami factory.
After the museum, head in the direction of Cignano. Along the way, you’ll come across and visit sheep farmers that produce percorino cheese. Once in Barullo, you can see how yellow saffron is grown and taste wines from the local agriculture school.
Next is a visit to an extra-virgin olive oil producer, before arriving in Cortona,with its wide range of taverns, wine bars, restaurants and trattorias, offering traditional dishes from the area.
