Andy and I began our days with a gorgeous 20-minute walk from the apartment in town where we stayed to the villa where the retreat took place, which meant walking through an actual castello (castle) currently inhabited by several families and a truffle museum.

The day’s sensory experiment involved conducting a sniffing tour of the premises and sharing fragrances with blindfolded partners.

The afternoon took us to a nearby winery, Sasso di Sole, where handsome Lorenzo gave us a smart and informative introduction to the vineyards, the winery, and the superb wines they produce (an orcia rosso, a rossi di Montalcino, and a brunello di Montalcino).

As the sun set, the fog rolled into the Val d’Orcia.
