Wedding in Tuscany, today it is in the wine cellar

The new trend for weddings in the wine cellar has convinced Donatella Cinelli Colombini to take on the role of  “Wedding planner”,  she has thus created two proposal made to measure for couples who adore great red wines and the countryside.

Wine wedding, Casato Prime Donne, Montalcino

Getting married among the barrels is now fashionable all over the world. There are travel agencies specialized in this type of events, especially in the States but also in New Zealand and obviously in France. Here in Italy it expresses the couple’s desire for a ceremony which is not mass-produced, more in contact with nature but still very refined, in a way a means to feeling a noble wine producer for a day. What Donatella Cinelli Colombini proposes in her Casato Prime Donne in Montalcino is a real wine feast: a “divine” wine wedding where the whole structure is available for the wedding couple. Vineyards as a photographic set, aperitif among the barrels where the Brunello di Montalcino ages, lunch with wine tasting with 6 red wines from great vintages and silver chandeliers, cutting of the wedding cake with dancing in the fermentation area where the stainless steel is softened with the tulle nettings with a definitely trendy effect. Refined and unusual, most of all exclusive and intimate with less than fifty guests who are decidedly demanding.

The “Country wedding” for the nature lovers is programmed at Fattoria del Colle in southern Chianti. Here the number of guests grows and the atmosphere is more informal and the cost is decidedly inferior. Chequered tablecloths with lace trimmings, folk music, and traditional food such as hand made pappardelle and tagliata di bue chianino. At the table we serve Chianti Superiore and Doc Orcia Cenerentola. The 16th century villa, the chapel, the parks, the lawns, and especially the panoramic veranda and the wine cellar with its oak barrels all create a perfect frame for an unforgettable celebration.

For the more demanding there is even the possibility of having a Brunello with the wedding couples names to give as a favor for the guests.
The bedroom built as a lovers nest by the Grand Duke of Tuscany Pietro Leopoldo for his lover Isabella, awaits the wedding couple for their honeymoon. Its ceiling has frescoes and all the furniture is antique. Here the couple can have a toast at the end of a fairytale day.
In Donatella Cinelli Colombini’s estates we have had several important people getting married, sports champions, film-makers, TV journalists, architects whose studios are at the top of the world ratings, and chef from very well know restaurants. We have had orthodox and protestant weddings, even some “solemn promises”, promises of love with no legal significance. The wedding couple and the guests arrive from all over the world – in one occasion there were guest of 27 different nationalities – and they use the Fattoria del Colle in Trequanda to get both families to meet. Many guests come back and all, upon leaving, write in the quotation book the same thing “Thank you, the wedding was better than we had ever dreamt”.
