Obviously the cities are also beautiful in spring, but the countryside literally blooms again.

And obviously this awakening of nature has a different image depending on the territories and their integrity. Where woods, fields and vegetable gardens are interspersed with jealously preserved cities of art, the panorama has a WOW effect. This does not happen where the photographer must be careful to avoid concrete, degradation and abandonment.

 

 

TOURISM IN THE COUNTRYSIDE IN SPRING

Tuscany is unbeatable and the Val d’Orcia or the Crete Senesi constitute the ancient heart of this beauty. In spring and autumn they reach the peak of their splendour. Spring has the advantage of long days and is dominated by the green hue. Autumn has warmer shades and evenings suitable for tasting white truffles and new oil. But both have the right temperatures for regenerating walks in the open air and allow for fabulous wine tourism experiences. I must

say again obviously, but everyone knows, that in the two seasons the main attraction is different: in autumn there is the grape harvest but in spring, at least in Montalcino, it is possible to taste, almost for first, the new vintages of Brunello di Montalcino and Brunello Riserva.

 

 

 

THE TERRITORIES OF BRUNELLO AND ORCIA IN SPRING

This is why I insist on spring tourism in the wine territories and I would like to tell you what you will find here in Tuscany in theBrunelloand DOC Orcia areas. MyFattoria del ColleinTrequanda is like a small rural hamlet built at the end of the sixteenth century. There is the Villa, the Chapel, the gardens, swimming pools, the cellar, the old farmhouses which have been transformed into villas, apartments and rooms for tourists. They are furnished with small antiques to offer customers the feeling of being at their Tuscan grandparents’ home. There is a restaurant, banquet hall, natural wellness area, cooking school. Surrounding are vineyards, olive groves and cereal fields. 4 marked trekking routes and a photographic safari to take selfies in the most beautiful places. Three parks equipped to sit and admire the most beautiful agricultural landscape in the world.

At Fattoria del Colle and Casato Prime Donne in Montalcino the main attraction is wine: Brunello, Chianti Superiore, Orcia DOC, Supertuscan, Vin Santo… There are two wineries open to the public where it is possible to have unique and exciting experiences. Each offers 5 tailor-made visits for families, enthusiasts, experts or lovers of exclusivity. I’ll mention just two. At Fattoria del Colle it is possible to become “wine maker for a day” and create your own Supertuscan to drink at home with friends. At Casato Prime Donne there is an itinerant tasting of 4 wines each associated with different music and especially chosen by a musician sommelier.

 

 

 

WINE TOURISM IN THE WINERY AND AT THE TABLE

The experience with wine continues at the table, in the Fattoria del Colle restaurant where the chef Doriana and the maître Alfredo are two Sommeliers and know how to combine the dishes, typical of the area, with the wines. Here the Fiorentina steak with Brunello Riserva allows you to taste two excellencies in the place of production. In fact, the Chianina ox, with which the steak is traditionally made, is native to this area and even today it is possible to see the white giant grazing freely on the hills around the farm. It is the largest meat and working animal in the world, the adult male is the size of an elephant. The gourmet dinner becomes a cultural moment and allows you to enjoy all the pleasure of Brunello, a magical wine that can be satisfying when young and age very well.

 

 

WINE ALSO ON THE SKIN WITH VINOTHERAPY

For those who feel the need to regenerate their skin there is the natural wellness area where couples can bathe in wine in a juniper tub and have a couple’s massage with an expert therapist who chooses the most suitable treatment with them. The environment has been created where, in the nineteenth century, the carpenter worked. It still has the original vaults while the cement tiles, which give an Arabesque touch, were added during the restoration.

 

 

 

ART TOURISM AND REAL HANDICRAFT SHOPPING

Some news for those who love cultural tourism: in addition to Montalcino with the Fortress and the Abbey of Sant’Antimo, there are many cities of art that can be reached in twenty minutes: San Quirico and Bagno Vignoni, Pienza, Buonconvento, Cortona… a little more distant Siena and Perugia. Every day there are small events to

participate in. Added to this are the markets and the possibility of shopping for art and craft objects. Those who want to take home fragments of authentic tradition such as loom-made fabrics, handmade Scarperia knives, life style ceramics… will find them in the Toscana Lovers stores in Siena, Bagno Vignoni and Cortona. Each handcrafted object is a unique piece and tells a story.
