How about playing winemaker?
Would you like to prepare the blend of your very own wine? Come and enjoy this new experience.
The project is an absolute novelty and is called “let’s play winemakers”. Instead of being a game for kids though this is an activity for adults, wine lovers, who wish to experience making a great wine according to their own taste.
The programme lasts about two hours and is great fun. The first step is a guided tour of the vineyards.
First tasting: Rosso di Montalcino, a pure Sangiovese that shows all the best values of this varietal: elegance, harmony, finesse…. Second tasting: Leone Rosso Doc Orcia blend of Sangiovese and Merlot. Our wine lovers will begin to get the taste for this fascinating and complex subject of blends, and straight after they begin themselves blending Sangiovese ,Merlot and Sagrantino, 3 wines born from three different varieties, fermented, aged and in barrel separately. Glass measuring cylinders, glasses and lots of trails trying to find the perfect equilibrium between alcohol, acidity and tannins. The final results will be compared with a real Supertuscan which contains the same three wines: “Il Drago e le 8 Colombe”. Obviously this passage is only the first step in the world of technical wine tastings, a dun way to try the difficult art of being a wine maker one of the jobs where you need much talent and many years of studying. It’s not possible to become a winemaker in a day!! What we propose is an important and unique experience for those who really love great wines and want to understand them well. The participants will take home, as well as their new knowledge a diploma, for fun but not totally, to hang in their own wine cellars.
The wine tasting will take place out-of-doors.
