Harvest weekends 2021 tastings, experiences and a Master Class

Many experiences on Sangiovese and a master class by a super expert

This is the proposal for the weekends of the 2021 harvest – organized by Donatella Cinelli Colombini. Two appointments:

  • 17-19 September
  • 24-26 September

The first more focused on the tasting of grapes and the second on the tasting of musts. There will always be a full program of activities including tastings, visits to the vineyards and the two cellars at Casato Prime Donne in Montalcino and Fattoria del Colle in the Chianti and the Orcia doc areas.

The real attraction will be the master classes on Sangiovese held by great experts. The vine from which great wines such as Brunello and Chianti are born is in fact the variety with the highest number of clones: 100 in Tuscany and 8 in Emilia Romagna.

Sangiovese is also a “territorial” vine that is capable of changing depending on the terroir in which it is planted.

Italy contains 51% of all varieties present on earth and Tuscany has very diverse terrain, even at a distance of a few meters one from the other. For this reason, understanding Sangiovese is something fascinating and indispensable to really appreciate the great wines it produces.

Participants in the harvest weekends will stay at Fattoria del Colle in rooms and apartments. There are a restaurant, two swimming pools, an area for natural wellness (wine therapy, couple’s massages) gardens, parks and a breathtaking view.

The harvesting moment for the Brunello, Chianti and Doc Orcia grapes is a privileged moment for wine tourism, especially in Tuscany. Wine lovers have the possibility to see, and for a few moments take part in the harvesting of the grapes. They learn how to taste the berries to understand the true significance of the word “ripe”, differentiating between skin, pulp, and grape seeds. They understand the logics of the harvest calendar and share the grape growers’ passion and their worries if some black clouds are on the horizon and their joy if the forecasts promise good weather. Only at this time of the year is it possible to see the birth of great red Tuscan wines and it is possible to go home saying “a bottle of Brunello will be made with grapes I picked”

Every year from September 15th to October 20th Fattoria del Colle proposes at least two harvest weekends with a program filled with activities, tours (in the two wineries in Montalcino- Casato Prime Donne and in Trequanda – Fattoria del Colle), tastings, and themed dinners. Roughly 20 participants, overnight stays in the villas apartments and rooms of the small rural hamlet surrounding the estate that was built in 1592. An historic place where all lodgings maintains the imprint of the Tuscan tradition in its antique furniture, mixing with modern comfort.

The activities are guided by expert multilingual staff who teaches the secrets of Brunello, Chianti and Orcia Doc in a fun way. The harvest weekends are a different and captivating way to increase ones wine knowledge and to regenerate whilst in contact with nature.
