The Museum of the Community of Montalcino and Brunello originated from the need never to forget the great richness and variety of the heritage of history and traditions.
This heritage is composed of skills and crafts, of a way of living, dressing, eating and working, of the little objects, the postcards, the prints, the oxcarts and all the things big and small that have made up the life of our people for a thousand years.
The Museum in its halls the soul of a country known today for its wine, always the protagonist of a story of tenacity, work, struggle, but also the joy of life, culture, respect for self, others and nature.
Over 1,500 square meters of objects, photographs, documents, films, including wandering, alone or accompanied by guides, to discover the reasons of a myth.
There are two thematic tours of the museum.
The first tells the Brunello di Montalcino Community before, the ancient crafts, the sharecropping life.
The second tells the story of the Brunello di Montalcino wine explaining what is this, how did, who were the pioneers, what are the vineyard and cellar work, finally the Montalcino terroir and its many microclimates.
In the Brunello Museum is also the Brunello Labyrinth: an exhibition of over 200 bottles of wine cellars of Montalcino.
The Museum is not to be 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.
