To discover the Cortona Wines Trail, we suggest following this itinerary. We begin at 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, we’ll head in the direction of Cignano. Along the way, we’ll come across and visit sheep farmers that produce percorino cheese. When we get to Barullo, we 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, where we’ll be spoilt for choice in this town full of osterie, wine bars, restaurants and taverns offering traditional dishes from the area.
