Halfway between Montepulciano and Cortona along the Via Lauretana is the village of Valiano. Coming from Montepulciano, you will see our wine bar, La Dogana, and a sign for Palazzo Vecchio just beyond the village on the left. Coming from Cortona, you will see our wine bar, La Dogana, and signs for Palazzo Vecchio before the village on your right.
At 358 meters above sea level, nestled among the hills of the Val di Chiana, you can enjoy great wines and a splendid view of both the gracious hilltowns of Cortona and Montepulciano.
Nearby you can visit the Natural Reserve of Montepulciano, the lake of Trasimeno, thermal spas, historic towns and cities rich in art and culture, such as Siena, Florence and San Gimignano. There’s also a fun weekly market in Camucia on Thursdays and in Cortona on Saturdays. The world famous Arezzo Antiques Fair is held on the first Sunday of every month (and the Saturday that precedes it). And the unique Palio delle Botti takes place in the month of August in Montepulciano.
