How and why your birthday parties in an historic estate, such as Fattoria del Colle, in Southern Chianti, become memorable
There are birthdays for children full of games and cakes; there are important ones such as those for 18 years, 21 years or even the “round figure one” to celebrate 30 or 50, which becomes parties with many guests. There are hen nights, degree parties and even parties for divorces. Casual parties with a DJ and many surprises or even elegant parties in dinner jacket with refined buffet, chandeliers and live music …. Each with its own character and small rituals. Each birthday boy or girl with a different dream for their special party but each looking for something new that can surprise friends and remain memorable.
Fattoria del Colle can create these memorable moments, at a convenient price or even in a fairytale way.
First of all the location: the places where it is possible stay have an advantage of excluding the drink and drive problem, and timing as well. After the dance those who like living the night can continue the party next to the open bar, with music slight less loud. The dimension of the location is important too …and not only so that all guests sleep close by (Fattoria del Colle has 100 beds in rooms, apartments and villas). The larger areas allow, through the magic bound to their history, for parties that can surprise and fascinate. Modern structures are in fact all very similar, and also unfortunately more predictable.
A true party needs different moments and different locations: the aperitif and dinner buffet with tables for those who do not wish to eat standing up, the area for dancing, the open bar with its settees, the area for the cutting of the cake and toasts. Every area needs its own magic to be created with lights, sounds, and aromas….
The furnishings are very important to create the right atmosphere. Some are permanent like the lights in the park created by the art director Philip Robinson (from “Four weddings and a funeral”). Others are added to make the event unique. As is important the choice of the DJ
or the band and the barman. These are very personal choices and we have a list to help you make the right one. What is most important is to have spaces that are apt for the party: the winery with its barrels is surely the most particular place to dance, but there are also gazebos to be mounted in the park and dressed according to the type of party.
And finally the menu and the wines. For this we are well prepared, here at Fattoria del Colle. The chef Roberta and the patisseur Patrizia are able to create whatever you desire: from the most traditional cuisine to more creative modern dishes, from themed menus to the historic ones. Local produce of high quality and all dishes handmade, this means that the food is all really delicious. For the presentation one is rally spoilt for choice. The typical farm ones for those who like shabby chic,
while crystal and silver, chosen from a catalogue can allow for a more elegant style. Every detail is important: the menu sheet, the flowers, the table seating chart……
For the wines nobody can beat us: Fattoria del Colle and Casato Prime Donne, in Montalcino, make bottles that have been rewarded with International high ratings: Brunello and Rosso di Montalcino, Chianti Superiore, Vin Santo and Passito but also a white and rose used for the aperitifs and a Trentino spumante blanc de blanc made with 42 yeasts that
Donatella Cinelli Colombini has chosen for herself and her guests. For real wine lovers there is also the possibility of personalizing the bottles with your name.
An expert and creative team is ready to organize the events following the necessities of the birthday boy or girl transforming every appointment from a simple candle lit dinner among friends to the most grandiose of parties into something unforgettable. One must not forget that the wellness area with vinotherapy, the cookery school, the wine tastings, as the parks with 3swimming polls at Fattoria del Colle, can all add awesomeness to the stay for the invited guests.
For those who want something different still it is possible to book Vespa tours, hot air balloons, fireworks, theatre actors, nothing is impossible at Fattoria del Colle, not even to sleep in the bedroom that once belonged to the Grand Duke of Tuscany and his lover Isabella.
The price depends upon the dimension of your dream, let’s talk about it.
