enjoying our peaceful time in tuscany… just looking at these photos, i can hear the silence and the birds chirping. can’t wait to go back!
dress: urban outfitters (only $59 and comes in 3 colors, thinking i need the black one, too) | sandals: circus by sam edelman (for under $50, i have these in 2 colors, i highly recommend them!) | necklace: stella & dot | bracelet: vita fede
to say that tuscany was our favorite is an understatement. we stayed at this heavenly castle on a hillside: Catello di Velona Spa Resort & Winery …
… with 360 degree views of the endless, luscious landscape.
located in Montalcino where they are known for there red wine, Brunello to be precise, we became quite the tuscan wine connoisseurs.
relaxation at its finest
a visit to tuscany wouldn’t be complete without a wine tasting tour. and like i mentioned, Brunello is the name of the game, so red wine it is, and man is it delicious!
first stop, Biondi-Santi
next stop, Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona
there is a domesticated pack of wolves that live on this property! wow!
last stop (and our favorite), Sestadisopra
this small, family run winery was so amazing! Ettore (pictured below) lives here and runs his own winery with his wife and family. they hosted us for a private tasting, tour and storytelling. an unforgettable experience with a special italian family.
a day trip to florence took us to see the original David at the Accademia. it was truly breathtaking and absolutely worth seeing! pictures will never do it justice.
classic and endless views
