Duration: 7 hours
A very original guided wine tour for wine lovers who want to discover something very original and fascinating.
This is the first guided tour to three of the wineries that recently founded the newest of the Tuscan DOC appellations: Terre di Pisa. A delicious red wine based on Sangiovese grapes cultivated in the wine districts of Terricciola, Palaia, Peccioli and Volterra. Explore a wonderful area with breathtaking sceneries spotted with picturesque small medieval villages.
Terre di Pisa is also a territorial marketing project for tourism promotion of the area. Arianna & Friends is a founder and promoter of this project.
A scenic winery by Terricciola
Our guided tours to the terroir of Terre di Pisa starts in Terriciola with an introduction to the whole district of the Pisan Hills and to the concept of a wine and a wine region called Terre di Pisa. You will learn stories about how the area suddenly boomed in wine making a few decades ago and about how all local producers got together under a new denomination. The charme of all this story is how nicely all the winemakers of the region cooperate in order to make the name of their terroir and how they are all good and loyal friends.
We will start visiting a beautiful and scenic winery run by a local family where you will learn about wine making techniques while visiting their impressive premises. Here you will also taste 4 of their best wines, of course including their DOC Terre di Pisa, accompanied with some crackers and bread as a little snack.
Art & wine at a spectacular architecture-designed winery
The second guided visit during our tour is at a very beautiful building, designed by a famous architect for a new concept of winery: the winery as a place for producing excellent wines but also to enjoy art and music. You will meet the winemakers in person and learn about their idea of building an impressive place in a very picturesque location, with the most advanced technologies for energy efficiency. After visiting the winery, and enjoying their temporary art exhibition, you will sit in a very panoramic tasting room and enjoy 2 of their best wines accompanied by a delicious lunch.
A relaxing wine bar on a wine farm
The last stop along our route will be another very fascinating farm resulting from the restoration of an old sharecroppers farm. It is a family run business that also offers accommodation in the famous “agriturismo” formula. The company is particularly successful at exporting wines from the area. Here you will see the property and stop at their lovely wine bar where you will enjoy their wine DOC Terre di Pisa.
