Why to buy a property in Val D'Orcia?

Montalcino is an ancient Italian town which is famous in the US, Australia, South Africa and Asia. This is mostly due to Brunello di Montalcino - one of the most famous wines in the world which is produced only in this area. Such a small territory to satisfy needs of the whole world! Montalcino is situated inside the Val D’Orcia Natural Park which was nominated a part of the World Heritage List by Unesco in 2004. The area with its breathtaking panoramic views has no industrial companies and factories, so there is no pollution, including no eye or ear pollution. If we could see the way Val D’Orcia looked 1000 years ago, it probably was very similar to how it looks today. This is our luck, our strength and our pride, ours and of our ancestors who managed to keep it intact! Val D’Orcia is surely a unique place that attracts many tourists, and with them restaurants, wine bars, shops etc., which on their turn bring workforce. People who come here always need houses for rent or for sale which makes a purchase of a property in Val D’Orcia a good investment, and the whole area one of the most attractive in Italy in terms of Real Estate.

La Sagra del Tordo - "Thrush Festival"

Since 1958, the last Sunday of October in Montalcino the Sagra del Tordo is celebrated. You might call it a folkfest with parades in medieval costumes, traditional folk dancing and an exciting archery tournament between the quarters of Montalcino, and of course the best local dishes and wines. Apart from thrush, which have become a protected species so they are no longer on the menu (much to local dismay). La Sagra del Tordo has its origins in an ancient traditions of this area. The hill of Montalcino, with olive groves and vineyards, October has always been the period of intense migration of birds moving from North, and in particular thrush. In medieval times the hunt was particularly successful so that the hunters organized the festivals where all the town would partecipate. Men would show their abilities in tournaments and women would give the best proof of their coking abilities. The morning of the Sagra del |Tordo begins with traditional dances and processions with Tuscan countryside suites of XIX century, with accordeon live music. The four Districts of Montalcino (Borghetto, Pianello, Ruga e Travaglio) offer delicious local food: pappardelle pasta with wild boar ragout, pinci past with meat ragout, beans soup, grilled meat – all this with famous Montalcino wines. The competition of arch shooting near the fortress defines the winning district, which receives from the Capitan of the Field a silver arrow, the prize for the victory, singing victorious songs and making fun of other Districts, - the last part, the jokes - will last for all the winter. Thus, the Sagra del Tordo is not just a commemoration o fan old tradition and performance – it is the authentic expression of social life of people from Montalcino, which celebrates in those days its glorious traditions.
