    I did a lot of research on restaurants in Montepulciano before going and ended up going to "Osteria Del Conte" which was fabulous. Great comfort food!

    Homemade pici pasta with tomato, ravioli with mushroom sauce and lamb/pork chops with grilled veg very nice..I would recommend this place... it's nothing fancy but a great example of good Tuscan comfort food. All the locals seemed to go there.

      There is a regional tasting room right in the main square of Montepulciano, you just write them a note in advance for an appointment.

      There are also several cantinas in the historic center.

        A search should pull up some other info too; there have been discussion in the past of wine tasting excursions in this area
