How many ways do you know to taste good wine? A picnic in the vineyard is definitely one of the most original. This experience will lead you to discover the wines of Montepulciano directly among the vineyards, surrounded by the scents of vine and earth, immersed in the most beautiful views of Sienese Valdichiana and Val d’Orcia.
The tour begins in a winery in the countryside of Montepulciano, in the heart of Tuscany, where the company staff will welcome you and they will guide you in the visit of the cellar. Here you will learn about the history of the company, the methods and secrets of the production of the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano DOCG and the Rosso di Montepulciano DOC of which you will appreciate differences during the guided tasting.
At the end of the visit to the cellar, the tour continues through the vineyards where a delicious Tuscan picnic based on typical products of the area awaits you, accompanied by a bottle of Rosso di Montepulciano.
You will walk towards the vineyards with the classic basket and blanket, ready to experience an unusual déjeuner sur l'herbe with a rural taste. Tuscan cured meats, pecorino di Pienza cheese with jams and seasonal vegetables will be some of the products of your picnic and, as well as amaze you with their quality, they will enhance the taste of Rosso DOC, the perfect bottle for this situation.
A convivial experience, ideal to enjoy with friends, in a couple or with the family (the blueberry fruit juice will amaze children!). The possibility of experiencing it in the morning or afternoon makes it a valid and pleasant alternative to brunch or to the classic reinforced snack, in an exclusive location just for you.
