In late November I got the opportunity to visit wineries in the Brunello di Montalcino appellation in southern Tuscany. The trip did not disappoint. In the Italian fashion, food is a necessary accompaniment to the wine, especially when you are dining at a winery, which my group did twice a day.
The fare was mostly the traditional cooking of the area, albeit in refined fashion. The accompanying slideshow is a highlight of the meals, which were always four courses plus sides: antipasto, primo, secondo, dolce, and contorni. Five course, sometimes, if you included the fruit. The slides are shown in that order. No fruit, though.
