Imagine a beautifully restored Tuscan village nestled in the Chianti hillside set on a private vineyard that spans for miles waiting your arrival for a Super Tuscan wine tasting.
A vineyard often referred to as Paradiso, is where wine maker Francesco and his team of sommeliers will explain everything from biodynamic growing methods, to how the grapes are cut and pressed, to aging and bottling. Walk through the vineyards, visit the cantina, then have your chance to sip and swirl while learning about the gorgeous wines of Gaiole in Chianti.
Biodynamic farming and an organic production make the wine pure and superior. In 2008, Signor Francesco embarked on an organic route with both his vineyards and olive groves. Today he proudly confirms his official organic seal on all wine and olive oil products. Their philosophy is profound: “respect the land and in turn produce high quality wine and olive oil-“
Your host Francesco invites you into the vineyard to experience the Chianti Harvest ~ Wine Harvest in a special Super Tuscan wine and tasting tour held only during September and October. The cantina welcomes wine enthusiasts, connoisseurs, sommeliers and wine lovers alike.
