... do not forget the great richness and variety of historical heritage and traditions from which it was born, not by chance, the Brunello di Montalcino.
The Museum of the Comunità Montalcino and Brunello was born in 2003 in the old stables of the Fattoria dei Barbi, with the intention of wanting to pass on arts, crafts, and old peasant traditions that take the visitor to another era, made of hard work, passion and dedication.
The Museum collects into its halls the soul of a country which is known today for its wine, always the protagonist of a story of tenacity, work, struggle, but also the joy of life, culture, respect for itself, for others and nature.
Over 1,500 square meters of objects, photographs, documents, films, through which you go round, alone or accompanied by guides, to discover the reasons of a myth.
There are two thematic tours of the museum.
The first one tells the Montalcino’s Community before the Brunello’s life, the ancient crafts, the sharecropping life.
The second one tells the story of the Brunello di Montalcino explaining what this wine is, how it’s been originated, who were the pioneers, what are the vineyard and cellar work, finally the Montalcinoterroir and its many microclimates.
Inside the Brunello Museum you’ll find also the Brunello Labyrinth: an exhibition of over 200 bottles of wine cellars of Montalcino.
The Museum doesn’t wish to become a deposit of agricultural tools, but a journey into the community: you want to rebuild, through everyday objects, the life journey of a lost generation.
