Volterra is my favorite hilltown in Tuscany. Years ago, arrived in town for the first time, met new friends in the local bar and have been coming back ever since. One of those friends was Genuino who owned a restaurant and wine bar in town. Since that first meeting, Genuino, along with his wife Ivanna and daughter Claudia, have become my good friends. Since that first meeting, the Del Duca family have built a small B&B outside of town and developed a world-class vineyard producing award winning wines.
I’ve spent the last few days enjoying the the countryside around the Del Duca’s agriturismo. They have named it “Marcampo” and offer rooms and apartments for rent. It is a lovely place to slow down for a few days in Tuscany.
