Challenge Winner in A Place To Call Home Group – Tuscan and Wine Challenge April – 24 – 2010

The Chianti Hills

Considered the true heart of Tuscany, Chianti is an area that lies between Florence and Siena. This region of Italy is famed throughout the world for its quality wine, oil and rolling countryside that has been featured so many times in films through the decades.

The more mountainous sections of Chianti, towards Arezzo and Siena and along the Arno basin, remain largely unknown to tourists, however. With its vast pine forests and windswept uplands, this area is also rich in monasteries and abbeys such as Montescalari, Badia a Montemuro, the Abbey of San Michele, Badia a Coltibuono, Badia a Ruoti, the Monastery of Ombrone and Badia di San Salvatore alla Berardenga.

    Now that is a good shot, The rows of vines receding downward contrasts with the fields in the distance sloping upward.

    While we have a growing wine industry here in Texas, the one vinyard close to me is set next to a freeway !!! Your shot is course much mor pastoral.
