Most wine lovers have taken part in cellar tours and wine tastings, but how many have had the chance to spend a few hours in the vineyard with an agronomist learning how the perfect grape is cultivated? Well here is your chance to do just that.
Our guests will be treated to the tutelage of our experts, while a whole section of our vineyards will be at their disposal for a hands-on experience in viticulture. The topics we will address are: how vines are trained and why we choose a particular method, the effects of different soil compositions, the forces of exposure and climate, the importance of non-irrigation (…yes, non-irrigation), various pruning systems and defoliation, and the correct timing of all processes. Those lucky enough to be present at harvest time will even get to participate in grape picking.
There is no need for any form of expertise, all are welcome to participate and ask questions.
Of course after your morning in the vineyard you will have probably worked up an appetite, so it will be time to sit down to a private table in our villa for three course Tuscan lunch. Each course of your meal will be accompanied by our highly rated Chianti Classico, Chianti Reserve, and Super Tuscan wines.
