Where to go for New Year’s Eve
With friends, with family or with the love of your life, with your four legged friends…. The beginning of the New Year will be an occasion for a holiday to regenerate while in the midst of nature and traditions.
Fattoria del Colle, in the heart of the most untouched and panorama Tuscany, proposes an intense program with one or two activities per day from December 26th to January 6th. This is a way to appreciate the taste and style of simple but refined lifestyle in a land with a noble past.
Guided tours of the Brunello di Montalcino winery (Casato Prime Donne) and of the Orcia DOC one too, in some cases with itinerant tastings, out to discover anecdotes and particularities that are not well known about these fine Tuscan wines. Otherwise you can opt for an itinerary through the historic halls of the 16th century villa at Fattoria del Colle with the stories of lovers, heretics and brigands , visit the vegetable garden where the aphrodisiac mandragola,
“Aglione” and Val d’Orcia saffron are cultivated together with pepper, liquorices and absinthe…. And many types of mint. There will also be brief cookery lessons to learn how to make pinci, a typical Sienese handmade pasta and how to prepare the typical Sienese Christmas cakes (ricciarelli and panforte) and discover that they are really easy to make and much tastier that than the industrial ones. And finally take part in the traditional panforte game with the ladle handle to measure the winner’s distance. In the two estate restaurants we prepare themed dinners, some of which with 4 traditional dishes matched with 4 wines.
The new Brunello di Montalcino is born at midnight
Other menus concentrate on polenta, pinci, Sienese Christmas dishes, as well as, of course, the New Year’s Eve dinner that finishes with the preview tasting in the cellar of the new Brunellos. As is known the great red wine from Montalcino ”is born” at midnight between December 30th and January 1st and the guests at Fattoria del Colle will have the pleasure of being the first, together with Donatella Cinelli Colombini the owner, to taste it.
Those who prefer to spend the evening soaking in the Jacuzzi with a glass of wine in hand, or those who wish to regenerate their skin and relax with a couples massage, maybe accompanied by a wine bath, can make the most of the relaxation area at Fattoria del Colle.
This is a well equipped area with Jacuzzi, sauna, Turkish bath, vinotherapy and massage and relaxation loungers; these rooms long ago were the rooms destined for the ironmonger at Fattoria del Colle and now is the area where we offer wellness in an exclusive situation
Fattoria del Colle is a small hamlet miraculously still intact regardless of the passing of the centuries. The apartments and the rooms are called as they were in the past: Oliviera, Vinsantaia, Selleria,Limonaia, Podere Sanchimento … even though today instead of the grindstones, the drying grapes or the saddles they house sitting rooms and bedrooms for the guests.
The furnishings are mostly made up of antiques and make you feel as if you were in you Tuscan Grandparents home. A real, informal and intimate taste that only authentic things give.
