What you'll do

I really hope to receive lot a wine lovers which want to have an unique wine and olive oil experience. Welcome drink at the arrival, guided visit of the middle age cellar, in the garden followed by a walk in the vineyards and in the olive groves and finally rich wine tasting and nice home made food served in a charming place that you will love it. According with the season you can be part of the works in the vineyards or in in the cellar. The time we suggest are; all the month of may, when there are the small clusters, September during the grape harvest, March, when we prune the vines and we press the dried grapes for the dessert wine Vin Santo, November when we pick the olives and we crush them. On summer you can do wonderful hike in the vineyards and maybe you can help to bottle the wine. Few days of the year it could be possible to do also a wine tasting from the barrels with our master of wine who will explain the secrets of the winemaking, ask in advance for it. If you love balsamic vinegar, we will introduce in its history and you will try vinegar with different ageing. You will also discover the incredible flavours of the white truffle infused in our extra virgin. If you want to have a bottle with your personalized label, let me know 12 hours in advance your name and surname and I will prepare the private label; you will choose the wine here. Me and my family wait you !

Me and my bf had a beautiful day in Chianti hills thanks to Simone. The tenuta its really beautiful and he guide you through a beautiful trip among their wines where you can see the passion and love he has for his work. The tasting was amazing and the food was too, Simone provide me also a vegetarian option since I don’t eat meat. Everything was perfect if not for the windy weather that was a bit hard on me but the beautiful location we were in repaid for that. I recommend this experience to everyone as it is one in a kind!

Absolutely amazing experience!!!! Simone and his wife are extremely generous so we were able to try many different wines, cheeses, meats, oils, and vinegar. It’s worth every penny. And their vineyard is in the Tuscan country side, so we were drinking wine in paradise. For the best wine tasting of your life, I highly recommend them!

This was my second time attending the wine tasting & I very much enjoyed it both times! Simone gave great explanations of the great selections of wines, oils, jams, lemon cello, and grappa. I am vegan, but my friends that joined me were not and we all had a splendid experience. The establishment is very accommodating if you let them know of any allergies or discomforts before the tasting begins. Wonderful experience! 10/10 would recommend to anyone looking to have a great wine tasting.

Guest requirements

Up to 10 guests ages 18 and up can attend. Parents may also bring children under 2 years of age.

What to bring

just a smile and....... Since in the summer there can also be a temperature change of 30 ° C - 50 ° F, between the external temperature and the temperature of the underground cellar, I recommend taking some clothes to cover your shoulders.

IMPORTANT: I would like to remind you that this EXP is not a professional wine class with a sommelier presence. I repeat this because sometimes a guest expects this. For a service of this kind, many more hours are needed ...
