White truffle and Tuscan wines for kings


Autumn weekend with the Crete Senesi white truffle, Brunello, Chianti Superiore and Orcia in a 16th century Tuscan farm with vinotherapy

By Donatella Cinelli Colombini



Fattoria del Colle organizes three weekends in November 3-5 / 10-12 / 17-19 for those who love white truffles, that this year are particularly rare and expensive.

The estate has 5 truffle preserves where the white truffle of the Crete Senesi is found, a very refined variety because of its intense aroma and very harmonious taste. These weekend dedicated to this precious product are full of fun experiences that enrich your knowledge: truffle hunting in the woods with a truffle hunter and his dog, a cookery lesson on truffles, guided tours of the Brunello winery (Casato Prime Donne) and  Orcia-Chianti winery (Fattoria del Colle) with wine  tastings, dinners ……………

Two interesting novelties to enrich the already rich weekends: at Casato Prime Donne in Montalcino, next to the winery, Alessia Bernardeschi has created a piece of contemporary art called “Donna che guarda”,



(the woman. This is a frame within which you can take a great selfie with the Brunello vines behind you. It was launched on September 17th and you will be among the first to use it for your beautiful photos, please do send them to us!

At the end everyone will take home a personalized bottle of Brunello. Not a regular bottle of Brunello di Montalcino but, your Brunello , with a packaging different to all others.

During the weekends 11-12 and18-19 November, at 15 km from Fattoria del Colle, in the San Giovanni d’Asso castle (Montalcino municipality) there is a Crete Senesi truffle workshop, where it is possible to buy truffles, there are many food stalls and local handicraft.  What we are proposing is a unique and immersive experience, made more intense because of the beauty of the panoramas, that around Fattoria del Colle, are unchanged and of immense charm.

Fattoria del Colle resembles a small hamlet, with the 16th century villa and the chapel in the middle. It is surrounded by a panorama that has remained unchanged for centuries.

The apartments and rooms for guests are furnished with authentic antique furniture but they do have modern comfort. There is a restaurant, a wellness area with the vinotherapy, sauna, Turkish baths, and Jacuzzi and massage room for couples’ massages (to be booked beforehand)


For those who love art, a short distance from Fattoria del Colle you find several small but beautiful cities of art: Pienza, Montepulciano, San Quirico and Bagno Vignoni, Montalcino and Cortona. Siena is 45 km away
