A Feast of Fine Wine, Fine Food & Olives.
Experience the gorgeous reds and golds of autumn in one of the most beautiful and captivating wine regions of all. High amongst the winding hills of the famous Chianti Classico region, we enjoy the warm hospitality of our three Tuscan vineyards. We also meet the wonderful characters who make our smooth, supple and delicious wines.
We’ll witness the olive harvest in full flow and get to taste the oil hot off the press! As well as eating great cuisine and drinking fabulous wines, we also spend time exploring the beautiful town of Siena as well as the breathtaking Tuscan countryside.
Our base is the Riserva di Fizzano in Castellina in Chianti, which sits atop a hill just north of Siena, once a medieval hamlet with over 1000 years of history, it now belongs to our vineyard, Rocca delle Macie. The apartments are spacious and well equipped and for anyone wishing to ‘linger longer’, you have facilities to cater for yourselves if you wish, although the restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and the food is delicious!
We will also have a visit and lunch at Castel di Pugna. Emanuele, who is the son of the owner, Count Luigi Alberto Fumi Cambi Gado, will show us around and conduct a tasting, and his sister Valentina will make us a sumptuous lunch to complement the wines. They also make toiletries with the grape must, and their ancient cellars are an amazing sight!
Sunday will see us visit Monte Chiaro for a tour and tasting amid the lemon groves with Alessandro Griccioli, the estate has been owned by the family since the 1800’s. After our tasting we have lunch in the delightful sunny garden, you really cannot miss Nona Beppina’s lasagne at lunchtime, simply delicious and a perfect end to our visit.
INCLUDES: 3 nights’ accommodation at the Riserva di Fizzano, dinner (with wine) on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings; lunch (with wine) on Saturday and Sunday; and coach transport on Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday.
