Surrounded by the unique landscape of Romantic Tuscany, experience a food and wine tour that will make a memory of a lifetime. Among the must-visit wine destinations for connoisseurs of great Tuscan wines is Fattoria del Colle, in the heart of the Val d’Orcia, for an unforgettable and romantic wine experience immersed in the beauty of the Tuscan countryside.
Fattoria del Colle, with its 336 hectares of organic vineyards and olive groves, offers a series of not-to-be-missed tasting experiences, touring to discover Chianti, Orcia, Supertuscan, and Cacio Experience paired with the fine wines of its cellar.
A Wine Experience in the Tuscany of great red wines, guests of the sixteenth-century rural hamlet of Fattoria del Colle di Trequanda, overlooking the evocative Crete Senesi, enriched by a new program designed “tailor-made” for tourist wine lovers, that also aligns with the trends of the new way of living the tourist experience, that is, participating as protagonists in the activities and making the vacation unique and unforgettable.
A trend that Donatella Cinelli Colombini, wine producer (Fattoria del Colle and Casato Prime Donne in Montalcino), founder of the Wine Tourism Movement as well as the creator of the Cantine Aperte day, has managed to interpret before anyone else, so much so that she has made Fattoria del Colle the first Wine Destination in Tuscany with a daily program of activities aimed at involving tourists in a participatory way and with wine tastings of the highest level, all immersed in unspoiled nature surrounded by a landscape of rare beauty.
The Wine Tour
An unmissable wine tour for those who want to experience the most authentic holiday rich in terms of food and wine and traditions. In fact, guests will have the opportunity to participate in guided tours of the chapel and historic gardens, the vegetable garden with edible flowers to taste, aromatic herbs to touch, and the most ancient essences, including pepper, garlic, and wormwood, to discover firsthand the particularities of Sangiovese and the ancient Tuscan grape variety Foglia Tonda.
There will, of course, be no shortage of stops at the winery, with itinerant tastings at Fattoria del Colle of Chianti Superiore, Orcia DOC and Supertuscan as well as extra virgin olive oil, all hosted in a suggestive and original tasting room set up specifically for vineyard experiences.
Not to be missed, finally, the Cacio Experience, during which it will be possible to watch the preparation of Raviggiolo cheese, and the Wine Experience par excellence, that is, the game of Winemaker for a day, thanks to which each guest, followed by an expert taster who will dispense advice on how to balance the various elements of wine, will be able to produce their own Supertuscan to be labeled with a personalized name and take it home.
A wine tour full of interesting insights that will be complemented by an excursion to the Brunello di Montalcino winery at Casato Prime Donne in Montalcino for an exclusive tasting of Rosso, Brunello di Montalcino and Brunello Riserva, accompanied by trekking itineraries in the organic Sangiovese vineyards and art installations such as the Modernacolo created for Carla Fendi, and frescoes on the history of Montalcino and the production secrets of Brunello.
