Duration: 6 hours
SO MANY EMOTIONS IN JUST ONE DAY!
A full-day wine tour dedicated to two very important wineries in the area of the Pisan Hills: a contemporary winery, built on the occasion of the full recovery of an extended farm with new vines, modern plants and totally advanced technology, and a historical winery, run by a family of nobles whose wines made the history of a whole territory. Learn about their differences and analogies and become an expert of Tuscan wines!
A technologically advanced winery with stunning views
The area of the Pisan Hills, Terre di Pisa, is experiencing a boom in investments by important winemakers from all over Italy. Our day tour shows you some protagonists of this important development in a morning guided visit to a contemporary winery where the most advanced technology in winemaking is joined to wise farming methods deriving from centuries of cultivation of the vine in this area. Our guide will give you an introduction to the terroir before showing you stunning working areas where the grapes are transformed into fantastic wines. The visit to the winery ends in a charming tasting room where the best wines are served along with local specialties.
Before reaching the second winery of the day program, the guide shows you one little rural village in a quick but interesting walk, in which you will learn a lot about the local traditions and lifestyle.
An ancient winery in a noble property
The rest of the afternoon is dedicated to another winery that produces renowned wines in the old cellar of an ancient property, owned by a family of counts. The setting is very different from the first winery since in this case the historical wine property is set in a small medieval village and the premises have been used for decades by a dinasty of famous winemakers. Here we visit the main villa and the beautiful gardens before entering the historical cellar in the basement of an old palace, where wines are aged in oak barrels lined in underground tunnels.
The visit ends with a guided sampling of the best wines of the estate accompanied by cold meats.
A full-day wine tour that gives you a complete picture of the local winemaking scenario!
