To get married in the romantic park, in front of a vineyard, in front of a panorama that seems to come out from a medieval painting; at Fattoria del Colle this is all possible. The Trequanda municipality has in fact authorized us to celebrate civil weddings in 4 special locations, and Donatella Cinelli Colombini is ready to perform thanks to the mandate she has received so that she can sign the wedding act in an official manner.
The ceremony is the most important moment and new fittings have been created to make it more intimate and more spectacular. The couples who wish a Tuscan style wedding will find in Fattoria del Colle a traditional and authentic location that will create emotions for both the wedding couple and their guests; a story about noble families and farmers, an informal style mixed with luxury and simplicity, while all around is the countryside from where the great red wines are made and farming landscapes among the most beautiful in the world.
During the past few months gardeners have worked hard in the parks and gardens, while upholsterers and renovators took care of things indoors. All so as to transform the wedding couple’s dream into reality for the best day of their lives.
The Grand Duke’s bedroom, where the wedding couple can spend their honeymoon now has a canopy bed, a 17th century chest, and air conditioning. At the end of the 18th century this was a refuge for Pietro Leopoldo Grand Duke of Tuscany, together with Isabella, his lover. This room, still today, maintains a romantic and aristocratic character because of its entirely antique furnishings and the ceiling with frescoes regarding all the breeds of Tuscan birds.
In the billiard room right next door, the room has been enriched with book shelves and new upholsteries. There is now an elegant corner where the wedding couple and their guests can meet, in case or rain. Whereas if the weather is good at Fattoria del Colle there are 4 parks and three swimming pools where you can relax in the midst of nature.
This is where the aperitifs and the cutting of the wedding cake take place… Each couple creates their event, different from any other deciding on the location, linen, flowers, music, and menu. The style can be more country, shabby chic, formal…. Every solution can be emphasized by the dishes prepared by Chef Roberta Archetti in respect of tradition and local ingredients.
The wedding banquet is the most formal moment and generally it takes place in the veranda at the restaurant or on the terrace in front. The wedding couple and guests sit at the tables and the Brunello and Doc Orcia wines start to arrive, those for which Donatella Cinelli Colombini’s wineries are famous all over the world.
For the party it is possible to use the hall that measures 130 square meters that has been recently rebuilt in an old barn with a wonderful view over Trequanda. An area where if it rains, even the wedding ceremony can be held and where it is possible to dance all might long, as long as the volume of the music is moderate.
So the wedding day is like a sequence of magical moments in an intimate atmosphere that is desired to be informal. Fattoria del Colle is a place where proudly we maintain the traditions of the Tuscan countryside. Even the apartments and rooms for visitors, where in olden days the farmers used to live, are furnished with antique furniture, and, the woods are illuminated as if for a party in the barnyard, following the indications given by Philip Robinson (set designer for Four weddings and a funeral).
Then there is the vegetable garden with the “aglione”, the saffron and the yellow tomatoes …. But also the wellness area is to be considered, with its sauna, Turkish baths, salts for massages, and the vinotherapy for couples and two Jacuzzi’s, one indoors and one outside. Finally but maybe the most importantly, the two wineries Casato Prime Donne in Montalcino and Fattoria del Colle in Trequanda with their oak barrels where the Brunello, Doc Orcia and Super Tuscan wines age..
This is the Tuscany that all lovers hope to have for their celebration of love.
The super staff at Fattoria del Colle, with Alessia, Sara and Giulia, is waiting for you for just that.
