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 !
