The Setting



Welcome to Montefollonico

You arrive in to Montefollonico through the gentle winding roads curvaceously paved though the Tuscan countryside perfectly positioned between Rome and Florence. Tuscany is like nowhere else in Italy. This is the Italian countryside of your dreams; sun streaming down on golden fields, lush olive groves and magnificent vineyards tended by the multiple generations of the same family. Many of Italy’s most famous recipes were created here in these family’s kitchens, lovingly passed down from one generation to the next. Treasured Chianina, the snow- white cattle that produce prized pecorino cheeses, roam these fields. And the award-winning wines of Italy are made from the Sangiovese grapes grown here. Nowhere else in Italy will you find a calmer pace, true farm-to-table cuisine, more picturesque views and warm, welcoming families.

Tuscan Women Cook is proud of the deep relationships forged with the residents of Montefollonico. We’ve been here since the year 2000 and feel very connected to this community. The warm welcome our guests receive from the residents and the personal ties we have with the very best vintners, restauranteurs and, of course, our cherished nonnas, gives our guests unparalleled access to a true Italian culinary experience.
