Full description
The Educational Wine Tour & Tasting  “Vine, Wine and Life” starts with a visit to organic vineyards where you'll go through all the main steps of the agronomic, phenolic and organic cycle, in order to understand the complexity of the “vineyard” ecosystem and of an agriculture with low environmental impact. In the historical cellar, you'll discover the chemical-physical and microbiological processes that make a quality production. You will taste the wines in a sensorial tasting room to grasp the organoleptic complexity and have a better understanding of them. The visit will end up with a light-lunch to experience the emotions the right combination of food/wine can offer your palate and spirit. All the different chapters will be discussed directly in the vineyards, cellar and tasting room in a very simple way, in order to easily understand even the most apparently complicated concepts.

    Christian gives you a lot of knowledge and conviction from his completely sincere, personal story about organic wine growing. The wine tasting is a confirmation of the previous and very pleasant, spontaneous, with fantastic wines. The lunch dish is appropriate, very tasteful with the various wines. The location is fabulous; completes the total experience! Fantastic value for money…..do this!

    It was a great learning experience for Jasmin and I. This is a great experience for beginners or for those who need a refresher at a very beautiful vineyard within Siena. Our host was very witty and funny while being informative about all things wine. I highly recommend this tour!

    We booked the tour at this beautiful winery at very short notice the day before because we spontaneously decided to do a wine tasting while on vacation. At first we hesitated because of the price, but in retrospect it is completely justified. The tour was conducted by one of the owners (Christian) of the organic winery himself, super friendly and competent. During the tour we were guided through the individual growing areas and the wine cellar and learned a lot of interesting things about the organic cultivation of wine. Then we came to the tasting of different wines, which harmonized very well with the food (including dessert!). We were also able to try the homemade olive oil, which was delicious. In short: a great tour that was definitely a highlight of our Tuscany tour.
