How Happy Wine at Fattoria del Colle has changed
On Thursday craft beers from the Val d’ Orcia together with Cinta Senese sausages, on Friday Cenerentola Orcia Doc accompanied by a selection of pecorino cheeses both fresh and matured, on Saturday Brunello wine accompanied by Tuscan cigars, on Sunday crostini with white truffles from the Crete Senesi served with IGT Toscana Sanchimento
This is the alluring programme for our Happy Wine event which is served in the cellars of the historic Fattoria del Colle. It always starts at 18.30, a perfect time in the summer when it is too cool to feel as though you want to jump in the pool and perfect too in the winter when it is already dark and the day is over, we open the doors of the tasting room in the Sixteenth Century villa of the Colle and enjoy a lovely evening listening to Tuscan music. What type of music is that, you may ask? It is the music of Gianna Nannini, Jovanotti, the Baustelle, Stefano Bollani, Irene Grandi and Bocelli.
Surrounded by Medieval walls and nestled inside early twentieth century rooms, snuggled deep in the extremely comfortable pastel coloured chairs, everything in this historic winery creates an informal and relaxed atmosphere. Delicious titbits and outstanding wines arrive to be tasted and enjoyed, people start chatting, and soon everyone finds new friends. This is modern Tuscan country hospitality where even the most recent traditions of ‘fuori pasto’ casual dining has become an opportunity to join together with friends new and old and have an enjoyable evening.
Come and join us for great wines, tobacco and Venus – the god of beauty …. in the cantina of Donatella Cinelli Colombini (which is staffed only by women). We are sure that these evenings will also be attractive to our female customers, please don’t stay at home – come and join us. We are sure you will be very happy to come along and enjoy these fantastic evenings.
