We have been shut to the public but we have never been still. Those who have been following us via social media have seen the awards arriving from all over the world for our wines, the birth of the photography safari and the new signposting the experimentation of dishes by our chef Doriana, the Spumante bottles on the pupitre, the spontaneous Val d’Orcia herb plantation in the vegetable garden ….

 

WINE DESTINATION: IMMERSIVE ROOM WITH THE 4 SEASONS IN THE VINEYARD

Many small things are changing Fattoria del Colle into a wine destination able to offer authentic and absorbing experiences with wines and with the old Tuscan traditions.

Obviously the biggest changes are in the cellar at Fattoria del Colle. The fermentation area has now been boxed off and has a shelter that will protect the grapes in arrival during the harvest. Where the packaging takes place there is already positioned a new bottling machine and soon the new labelling machine will arrive so as to guarantee the maximum care even in the last but all the same important moment in wine production. There is an immersive room where visitors will be able to hear and see what happens in the vineyards during the 4 seasons and at different times of day. So as to learn that light can change the landscape, and the cicadas are not always heard, on the contrary in summer and winter they have their noises, and the northerly wind has a different sound than the sirocco wind, while the bells are still timekeepers in countryside. An immersive experience where sounds, images and lights teach guests that the wonderful countryside surrounding them must be looked at with an attentive eye, and in a few months it will be completely different.

 

A CELLAR THAT RESEMBLES A WOOD WITH BOTTLES INSIDE

The new underground bottle storage of around 450 sq m (18°C) contains the coolest room (12°C), where the spumante rests on the yeast after the secondary fermentation. This is a craft production of just 1800 bottles per year of spumante metodo classico obtained from Sangiovese grapes. The remuage of the bottles on the  pupitre is also done by hand.
The most spectacular thing is the external overlay of the new section of the cellar representing a wood in corten steel designed by the Architect Elisa Boldi to resemble the oak trees in the winter period. At night the metal trees are backlit and give the sensation of a fairytale scenario. Naturally the most precious things, even if less spectacular, are the bottles inside. They are receiving prize after prize from all over the world. The latest are from GuidaBIO that has given the excellence with 5 leaves to the Chianti Superiore 2018 and 4 leaves to the Leone Rosso Doc Orcia and to Rosso di Montalcino Doc 2018.

HIKING IN THE VINEYARDS AND PHOTOGRAPHY SAFARIS

The wine experience we are proposing to guests includes also the hike through the vineyards that now has new signposts. The signs are small and made of wood so as to not create any visual pollution. They have been made by Silvia, the person with most artistic talent in our team. The vineyard hiking map is handed out at the reception at Fattoria del Colle, so the itinerary can be done independently and at leisure following the signposts and reading the information- in Italian and English- along the trail. For those who love going on walks there are another two trails equipped with indications regarding animals and plants that can be seen while walking and there is also a photography safari with the best places where to appreciate the breathtaking panoramas surrounding Fattoria del Colle.
