NEW YEARS EVE FOR WINE LOVERS AT FATTORIA DEL COLLE IN TREQUANDA
WINE NICE DISHES AND THE OLD TUSCAN COUNTRYSIDE ATMOSPHERE WHILE WAITING FOR MIDNIGHT
Vertical tastings of Brunello and Orcia DOC, horizontal tastings of Tuscan DOCG wines, dinners with old and modern dishes from the Tuscan tradition, guided tours of wineries in Montalcino and in Chianti, trail through the vineyards and a great desire to spend time together while waiting for midnight: here is Donatella’s proposal for those whishing to spend New Year at Fattoria del Colle in Trequanda with the whole family, including pets.
From December 27th to January 1st, a rich program from which to choose the best days to spend in the uncontaminated and suggestive Tuscan countryside. Every day a different cookery class – from the patisseur who teaches how to make ricciarelli, cavallucci and panforte Margherita to lessons regarding making home made pasta such as pinci – guided tours of the historic parts of the estate such as the San Clemente Chapel, the Armorial hall, the 16th century kitchen, the Grand Dukes bedroom, the Brunello Infernotto, the barrel ageing cellar for Doc Orcia and the Vinsanto loft with wine tastings in the historical cellar, from the Orcia Doc Cenerentola to Brunello. Every day there is change also in the menu in the Osteria di Donatella: dishes from the Sienese tradition such as ciancifricola, rivolti with spinach, zuppa trequandina, bruschetta, Sienese cold cuts and chesses, pappardelle with duck meat sauce, maltagliati with wild boar meat sauce, wild boa scottiglia, polenta with pork meat sauce, mushrooms or Tuscan meat sauce, all preceded by interesting aperitifs in the historic cellar, with bruschetta dressed with the new extra virgin olive oil, IGT Rosa di Tetto 2012 and the traditional game “gioco del panforte”.
