MONTECARLO: a jewel among castles, home of best wines.
Looking up from one of the hills of the valley of Montecatini and Valdinievole, there is but one profile that every single borgo faces, facing the horizon towards Lucca: it is Montecarlo, few steps from Pescia, a hill dividing two valleys, founded by Giovanni of Boemia for his young son, Carlo of course.
A small fortress and borgo built to protect “vivinaia”, where since over 750 years ago wine was already produced daily.
