Before sampling the wares for yourself, you will visit the olive groves and vineyards and also the subterranean wine cellar. And who better than the individual who produced them to guide this experience?
You’re going to enjoy a complete tasting of four wines-one white, two red and one unique dessert wine-with the winemaker’s comment on what flavorful notes they’ve put in and how.
They will take you to the lovely garden of the villa after your wine trip where you will find a table set for a feast. Soak up the evening’s tranquility and enjoy your fellow guests ‘ business as you dine on local specialities from Pienza such as crostini, prosciutto ham, parmigiano cheese and pecorino cheese.

You will also discover options for vegetarians and those with unique diets, of course.
