Tuscan Wine Estate
Take a trip out to the Tuscan countryside and enjoy a relaxing stroll around the centuries’ old vineyards and winery at Principe Corsini’s Villa Estate.
Your guide will show you the different phases of the winemaking process, visiting the cool wine cellars, the barrels of French oak, as well as the olive oil press where they make extra virgin olive oil.
After the tour through the grounds and winery you’ll enjoy a four course Italian meal, complete with wine from the estate.
Historic Wine Cellars
Villa Le Corti and its wine cellar were constructed in 1600. It had enormous dimensions for its time, anticipating a modern model of farm management by 300 years. They transferred production of wine and olive oil from the humble farmers’ homes to the grand cellars and olive mill of the Fattoria (farm). Now it is still functional, efficient, and affords full utility in wine and olive oil production.
Chianti’s Largest Orciaia
The guided visit takes guests underground, passing through the fermenting rooms for winemaking to the barrel rooms for aging, and finally to the bottling area. The visit also includes one of Chianti’s largest historic orciaia, or olive oil storage areas, and the olive mill.
Wine tasting on location
You’ll follow the tour at the wine bar with a tasting of a selection of current and older vintages from the historic reserves of Villa le Corti and enjoy a special 4 course menu.
