Wine & Food
Indulge yourself in the Tuscan lifestyle and discover the region’s passion for food and wine. While staying on a 16th century estate, you can enjoy the most beautiful countryside in the world, de Val di Chiana en de Val d'Orcia. With the famous cities like Montepulciano, Pienza and Montalcino.
This tour offers a stay full of experiences dedicated to wellness, cookery, fine wines, and a truffle hunt. You have plenty of time to walk the cobblestone streets of villages, shop at local markets, visit wineries and cheese makers, see historical sights and stop for a cappuccino or delicious gelato.
Wine is the protagonist
This package consists of four culinary activities.
The villa and wine tour takes you through the monumental villa. Starting with the centuries old kitchen with the monumental fireplace, the coats of arms room and the room built for the secret loves of the Grand Duke of Tuscany. But also the Italian garden and of course the wine cellar where you will taste three excellent wines.
For the truffle hunting, the truffle hunters and their dogs will lead you inside the woods in search of the precious truffles. On the estate there are five truffle reserves along the small streams.
The cooking class is in a very pretty mediaeval hilltop village nearby. In a small cosy place, together with the chef, you will spend a few hours cooking and enjoying the company of other people. You will learn some of the secrets of Tuscan/Italian cuisine and can then taste the food which has been prepared together.
The wine therapy is a unique experience. In an intimate setting, a juniper wood bathtub is prepared for two people. Here wine becomes the absolute protagonist. The wine bath is a regenerating treatment based on Montalcino red wine.
You can expand these four elements yourself with a wide range of culinary experiences in the immediate area. Dine in one of the many local excellent restaurants. Visit a cheese farm of the famous Pecorino di Pienza, a wine estates of the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano or the Brunello di Montalcino. Or have your own coffee blend put together at a small local coffee roaster.
