Run and Wine
Join me in the naturally calming and stunning vineyards of Montepulciano. Every day, I run through wonderful Tuscan landscapes. Running through the vineyards is an unforgettable experience.
The run and wine is about 8k on trail with frequent stops to take some pictures. It’s not timed, but participants should be able to run or walk at least 5k.
Start and finish are at the 16th century San Biagio church, with views over the famous rolling hills. The course passes by some important Montepulciano sites.
The trail is challenging with several hills running down through the vineyards and up again several times.
The route continues into the vineyards with spectacular views, and brings us back to the start/finish point. Here we’ll have refreshments available and a wine surprise!

Sylvia and the run and wine experience was just lovely – a unique and amazing way to explore the tuscan landscape whilst getting active. We stumbled across this experience on Air Bnb and were immediately interested as my partner and I (Australians) like to keep fit when on holiday – to balance all the wine and pasta! The run is suitable for all levels – my partner (a keen runner) ran off at times and I would stop and walk (and Sylvia would walk with me). The best part about the run/walk was meeting Sylvia, who has lived in Italy for 10+ years and spoke to us about the history and gave us winery tips – but most of all has a lovely personality and it was a pleasure being in her company! I would highly recommend this experience to anyone visiting Montepulciano.

Amazing experience. I’m a holiday runner (to stay fit) and the run was amazing and Sylvia adapted it to my level as well as interest in Montepulciano and the vineyards. Sylvia has a passion for the region, its history and culture and importantly, for sharing that with you. I highly recommend this run or walk with Sylvia – a unique experience in a unique part of the world.

Tijdens onze vakantie in Firenze een uitstapje gemaakt voor een Run and Wine experience in Montepulciano bij Sylvia. Sylvia is een gastvrouw pur sang en een warme en hartelijke persoonlijkheid. Ze heeft ons vol enthousiasme vertelt over Montepulciano, haar leven, werk en passie voor prachtige wijnen en hardlopen. Wij hebben genoten en hebben het echt ervaren als een hardloopbelevenis. Iets dat altijd een dierbare herinnering voor ons zal blijven. Thuis hebben wij nagenoten van de heerlijke wijn en pasta die we van Sylvia hebben meegekregen. Wij kunnen de Run and Wine experience in Montepulciano door Sylvia van harte aanbevelen. Wij wensen Sylvia het allerbeste toe in alles wat nog op haar pad komt en hopen dat ze nog heel lang mensen laat genieten!
