Upon our arrival in Montalcino we were excited to find a winter wonderland of beautiful snow.
We are told that this is not a regular occurrence and many winters will be without snow
Whilst difficult for local business and traffic the scenery was just spectacular
Looking over the Val D'Orcia. Normally the view is a patchwork of green vineyards, olive groves and ploughed fields
Looking toward Pienza and Montepulciano
Yes these are vineyards.
The snow in the last week has been very intense.
The beautiful Val D'Orcia
We expect the snow to be gone within the week and primavera (spring) to emerge
Ciao e baci a tutti
