What you'll do

To distinguish the different grape varieties, we will first accompany you on a tour of the vineyards surrounding Travignoli, in Chianti Rufina, where the vine was cultivated during the Etruscan era and it is still done today with care and respect for nature. We will visit the historic rock cellar of the 1400, the modern wine cellar providing technical explanations on the wine process. You will also be able to visit the private courtyards inside the villa, which was in 1400 a possession of the Santa Maria Nuova Monastery in Florence and to listen to its history. Then, the highlight of the experience will be to choose an old vintage, at your leisure, among the best bottles stored in a vault underground, with vintages ranging from 1980 up to the most recent ones. We will then move to the private tasting room inside the villa and there will be a guided tasting of the wine you have chosen and also of the entire range of wines produced on the farm.

Clemente

I grew up in Travignoli, in our family business in Chianti Rufina and I immediately became passionate about the cultivation of vines and olives in respect of nature. I trained in Viticulture et Oenolgie in Montpellier, then I did various experiences in wineries in Australia, Chile, USA, where I learned the different techniques and improved the knowledge of foreign languages.

Where you'll be

We will begin with the vineyards that surround the farm, then move into the heart of Travignoli where you will visit the private ancient villa, underground cellars, courtyards and private garden. Finally we will taste a special bottle of an old vintage, chosen by yourself, directly from our caveau. You will be guided with a technical explanation and we will also taste a bottle of Riserva currently on the market, for comparison.
