Fattoria del Colle is 12 km from the Abbey of Monte Oliveto Maggiore and 40 km from the abbey of Sant’Antimo in Montalcino, and 100 km from Assisi. Those wishing to experience a spiritual Easter holiday will have close by the right places.
For those wishing to have a holiday with the family and is thinking about spending time with the kids, grandparents and pets, we propose a program with daily fun activities.
This includes a tour of the Brunello winery called Casato Prime Donne in Montalcino, with an itinerant wine tasting; an absolute novelty crated by Igor Vazzaz a musician sommelier. At Fattoria del Colle the adventure continues with the guided tour of the historical halls of the estate where the owner Donatella Cinelli Colombini lives and, a visit to the winery where the Chianti and Orcia wines are made. A tour full of curiosities that will bring back memories for grandparents and will teach children lots of things about Tuscan history. There will be then two wine tastings not –to-be-missed: a vertical tasting of Brunello and a game at playing wine maker for a day creating your own dream wine.
There is a special treat for those who love cooking: Roberta the Chef and Patrizia the Patisseur will teach how to prepare Zuppa di Pasqua soup that the old woodcutters used to have only on holidays and for “Easter with kids” a lesson on biscuits called “ossi di morto” typically from Montalcino, the kids will make them themselves, these “dead man’s bone” have a terrible name but are delicious
The Easter menu in the Fattoria del Colle restaurant has a surprise, other than the traditional local dishes such as lamb and boiled egg with capocollo, there are two Easter schiacciate, called in the same way but one is savoury (from Valdichiana) and a sweet one (from the Siena region). During the meal many delicious proposals regarding historical meats (Cinta Senese pork and Chianina beef), cheese and soups that tell of old stories and introduce the territory. Then of course the award winning wines, acclaimed by the international press: Brunello and Brunello Riserva, Orcia Cenerentola and Chianti DOCG.
For sport addicts and lovers of nature we have trekking trails and those to be done by bike.
