The best way fo find us is to use the kilometer markers situated on the side of the road : black numbers on the white fonds. From Montalcino, take SP45 towards Siena. At the 8 km marker take the first left and you will arrive at a juction with two sand roads. Take the one on the left, with an iron gate. This is Fonte Aulente's entrance. From Siena and Buonconvento, again take the SP45. After the 7,9 km marker, continue for 80 meters, then turn right. Fonte Aulente is through the iron gate on the left-hand track. Please be careful when using GPS as several guests have been directed to the wrong area completely. We are less than 1 km from Montalcino.
