wineries will give the go to the harvest! The grapes are almost fully ripen and totally healthy, so it appears to be a good year. Let’s hope for a great harvest! Fattoria del Colle proposes, for the occasion, a brand new offer for stays and activities all dedicated to the harvest. Come and experience the emotions and the unique atmosphere  to the grape harvest in southern Chianti to discover how the great red Tuscan wines like Brunello di Montalcino and Chianti are born and the secrets hidden behind these bottles. All of this happens while immersed in the surroundings of a  16th century estate where apartments have been created from the old farmhouses. This is not just a trip back in time but a fun day in the vineyard and in the cellar with guided technical tastings by expert staff, and dinners with typical dishes from the Crete Senesi and Val d’ Orcia areas.

In October the program will be enriched with a Vinotherapy program in our wellness centre at Fattoria del Colle

To conclude the trip we suggest a visit to the cities of art close by such as Pienza and Montepulciano, Cortona and San Quirico-Bagno Vignoni, or to continue you “divine “weekend in  Montalcino.
