A magical territory, which varies in its many forms: the different sides of the Montalcino hill slowly roll into the enchanting Val d’Orcia, to the bottom of Monte Amiata and to the plains leading to the sea on the other side. Harmonious rolling hills with soft elevations that alternate between olive groves, vineyards and fields of wheat. Small plots of land topped with isolated farmhouses, majestic castles, little country churches surrounded by their hamlets: this is the land of Brunello Crossing, dominated by the medieval town of Montalcino. If you run with us, you will enjoy all this in addition to the best that this territory produces, which make it an absolutely outstanding place the world over.
Exclusively for Brunello Crossing participants and their family members and friends, the chance to live moments that only Montalcino can offer: a truly unique sensorial experience, a type of tourism that is timeless and that gives the best it has to offer in every season.
