Truffles and Orcia wine Cenerentola

4-6 / 11-13 / 18-20 November with the white truffle in Tuscany in the Crete Senesi area, a truffle region of very high level. Fattoria del Colle organizes weekends that include for you white truffles and the great red wines Brunello and Orcia DOC. During the same period in San Giovanni d’Asso (15 km away) there is a white truffle from the Crete Senesi fair. So plenty of shopping and hunting for the precious truffle in one of the 5 truffle preserves at Fattoria del Colle, themed dinners with truffle recipes, and even a brief lesson regarding the fungus. To make these weekends unforgettable there will also be some splendid wine tastings. And here are our two treats for this programme, that can give sensations and information to real gourmands and to the less expert, these are experiences in the Brunello winery, Casato Prime Donne: the wine and music tasting created by the musician and sommelier Igor Vazzaz with 4 wines and 4 different pieces of music and the brand new fermentation area for the Brunello wine where a flying dove helps visitor enter into the true Montalcino spirit with images and sounds. A beautiful surprise.

Last year I was nominated Cavaliere Onorario dell’Ordine del Tartufo e dei vini di Alba. During the ceremony I asked the Gran Maestro Bianca Vetrino << what do you drink with your truffles?>>  and she replied convinced << red wine>>. This reply made me think … matching white ruffles from the Crete Senesi with Brunello and Doc Orcia works just as well as the pairings in Piedmont in fact it must be studied.. maybe through a weekend full of excellent delicacies. Our white truffle is “honeyed” exquisitely refined; it has an intense aroma and is definitely intriguing (it is not a coincidence that it is aphrodisiacal) . It has become so acclaimed only recently, for this reason it is still quite affordable. Read more…

Wellness centre with a view at agriturismo Fattoria del Colle

In the new wellness centre of the Agriturismo Fattoria del Colle in Trequanda, which is owned by Donatella Cinelli Colombini, the surrounding countryside itself creates  part of the relaxing ambiance, the stunning vineyards, the vegetable gardens full of tasty produce, the themed guided tours and walks and the many festivals and celebrations which occur frequently through the year where you can meet new people and make new friends

‘The wellness centre will have a huge jacuzzi for private use, it will be able to be used exclusively by you together with your friends and family. You will be able to enjoy a great wine at sunset with views of some of the most beautiful countryside in the world stretching out in front of you.’This is the vision which has inspired Donatella Cinelli Colombini to develop the new Spa Centre in the Fattoria del Colle in southern Chianti. ‘It is a lovely property which will be available for up to 6 people for their exclusive use thus ensuring total privacy.’  Donatella concludes. But these are not the only things which make this relaxation centre unique. The design concept and the facilities are very modern however it has further been enhanced by the addition of some hand-made tiles whose designs are based on the illustrations found on nineteenth-century tiles which were used in traditional Turkish baths of that period and the Odalisque which were painted by Ingres. These  stunning decorations help to create the relaxed ambience and felling of wellbeing and, dare we say, makes the environment a little bit sexy. Here you have the opportunity to enjoy delicious wine whilst relaxing in the warm water of the pool.

The Relaxation centre is being created for the use of the guests of the Fattoria del Colle which include many  different types of people, some professional and some intellectual, in particular we find that foreigners are attracted to come and enjoy a visit at the fifteenth  century farm house.  All the Apartments and Bedrooms are furnished with Antiques, but no televisions, there are 3 swimming pools, 4  gardens  and parkland with age old trees, a games lodge with a pool table,  a restaurant which serves traditional local dishes from the Siena area (which have been even further improved by our excellent chef), a cooking school and  most important of all two wineries for the production of Brunello, Chianti and Doc Orcia wine.

The Relaxation Spa Centre has been created in an annex of the villa and has breathtaking views over the Val d’Orcia and the Crete Senesi. It is equipped with a turkish bath, a sauna,  a relaxation room, a hydro massage shower, a Kneipp pool and a hot tub. Individual massages take place directly in the guests own rooms to ensure maximum comfort and privacy.
