Activity Overview
Most wine lovers have taken part in cellar tours and traditional 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? Our guests will be treated to the knowledge of our experts, while a whole section of our vineyards will be at their disposal for a hands-on experience in viticulture.

The topics that 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. There is no need for any form of expertise, all are welcome to participate and ask questions. Those lucky enough to be present at harvest time will even get to participate in grape picking!

Of course, after your morning in the vineyard you will have most likely worked up an appetite, so it will be time to sit down for a special three-course Tuscan lunch in our villa. Each course of your meal will be accompanied by our highly rated Chianti Classico, Chianti Reserve, and Super Tuscan wines.

Enjoy a visit, wine tasting and lunch with qualified staff in a prestigious tuscan Winery. After that you can visit the noble castle of Cusona and their historical cellars, normally ... moreclosed to the public. A unique occasion if you visit Tuscany!
Enter in the unique world of wine with this special tour. You will have the chance to visit two historical wine cellars and a castle that normally is not open to public.
All the activities will take place near San Gimignano, in the heart of Tuscany, where traditions and wine production are kept alive from generations of wine lovers.

You will visit the vineyard and the old cellars of a famous winery and have a typical tuscan lunch there. During the lunch the qualified staff will teach you how to taste wine, offering a vertical tasting of their own products, and how to pair it with food.

After that you will access to the Castle of Cusona, whose origins date back to 994. After you pass the road with cypress at the very beginning of the entrance, you will see the iconic castle appearing and the amazing garden in front of it.

The highlight becomes the descent, from the imposing staircase to reach the long underground cellars, still today as a thousand years ago, kept in its original appearance, with the twilight light and the natural temperature to keep the wine in aging in hundreds of barrels.

Here begins the tasting of the prestigious wines followed by the explanation from the production to the bottle while observing and touching the history of the Princes and aristocrats who lived and live in the Castle.

The general silence before so much beauty and goodness of these great wines, focus on this unique opportunity to taste wines presented in such an incredible environment.
