WINE EXPERIENCE IN TUSCANY DURING THE EARLY SUMMER WEEKENDS
Wine experience at Fattoria del Colle in the heart of Tuscany to regenerate and learn about Brunello di Montalcino, Chianti and Orcia during the early summer weekends
In the Tuscany of fine red wines, in an historic winery, unique and pleasant experiences such as guided tours with itinerant tastings, gourmet dinners with 3 courses perfectly matched with specific wines, the winemaker game, cheese making ….. Many engrossing moments to which can be added: hiking, photography safari, tastings in front of breathtaking views or walks with resting stops to enjoy the silence and perfumes of the countryside.
FATTORIA DEL COLLE IN AN UNCHANGED CORNER OF THE OLD TUSCANY
Fattoria del Colle (click to book) was born in 1592 as a rural hamlet that, during the centuries has been miraculously preserved and offers now holidays in apartments, rooms and villas. These are furnished with authentic furniture, a modern comfort in the welcoming simplicity of the countryside. Surround there are equipped parks, 23 swimming pools, a restaurant, banquet hall, cookery school and natural wellness area.
THE BRUNELLO, CHIANTI AND DOC ORCIA WINRIES AND THEIR INTERNATIONAL SUCCESS
The most important thing is of course wine. The owner, Donatella Cinelli Colombini, created the first two Italian wineries with an all-female staff at Fattoria del Colle in Trequanda and Casato Prime Donne in Montalcino. A flagship for women’s oenology that in just 22 years has managed to produce a range of wines of absolute excellence, 9 of which with scores above 90/100 in the international specialized press and to export to 39 countries around the world.
WINE EXPERIENCE IN A WINERY FOR WEEKENDS AT THE BEGINNING OF SUMMER
The program that is offered to participants of the wine weekends at the beginning of summer, at Fattoria del Colle, includes four daily events: two guided tours dedicated to wine and history interspersed with tastings, a cheese experience and a dinner with three dishes combined with three wines capable of enhancing the flavours. The visits are unusual and surprising.
In the vegetable garden there are flowers and spontaneous essences of Tuscany that are served in salads by the farm restaurant but also pepper, Aglione, cola, wormwood … and many plants from which to learn … like the “consolida” with which the ancient casts were made. Even in the cellar visitors will find surprises, such as the immersive room in which to feel and see what happens in the vineyards at different times of the day and in different seasons.
GUIDED TOURS WITH TASTINGS AND EXPERIENCES WITH FOOD
To this agenda, participants can add an excursion to the Brunello winery Casato Prime Donne and a kind of game in which everyone creates their own Supertuscan, that is, a wine based on personal taste, a bottle to label with their own name and take home to drink with friends.
RELAXATION IN THE COUNTRYSIDE, SPORT OUT IN THE OPEN AIR, LANDSCAPE THERAPY
A proposal particularly suitable for those who have a dog, love nature and outdoor sports. These visitors can walk along the routes dedicated to animals, plants and wine, take part in photo safaris, or taste wine in front of the landscape in absolute silence. Fattoria del Colle, with its 336 hectares of ORGANIC vineyards and olive groves, fields of cereals and woods, offers all this framed by panoramas of extraordinary beauty.
They call the effect of this type of natural scenarios “landscape therapy” and indeed the rolling hills of Valdorcia and Crete Senesi, in addition to being a photographer’s paradise, are a therapy against the effects of lockdown.
We shall be waiting for you with open arms!
