Vagliagli

Ten zuiden van Castellina bevindt zich het schilderachtige gehuchtje Vagliagli, perfect gelegen voor het zuidelijke einde van de Chianti wijnroute. Deze eens versterkte buitenpost wordt omringd door betoverende wijngaarden die dateren uit de middeleeuwen. Dit slaperige 13e eeuwse gehuchtje is vernoemd naar de ‘vallei van knoflook’ waar het over uitkeek, vandaag de dag is het uitzicht echter meer op de valleien en heuveltoppen. Bewonder het mooie, stenen dorp en de parochiekerk alvorens te beginnen aan een wandeltocht, fietsrit of een picknick in de wijngaarden. Een wijnproeverij kan centraal staan in Valgliagli, maar het gehuchtje is ook een opstap naar de Chianti-bolwerken van Castellina, Radda en Gaiole. Deze bakens van het Chianti-leven in de kleine stad zijn overspoeld met goede wijn en voedselwinkels die verbonden zijn met lokale landgoederen. Samen bieden deze drie kleine steden voldoende cultuur om afwisseling aan te brengen in de bezoeken aan de landgoederen. Van middeleeuwse kerken tot kleine archeologische collecties, het is Toscane in het klein.

Wine Sensory Game in Chianti

If you are looking for a fun and unusual wine tasting, this is the experience for you!
We developed the first Wine Sensory Game with the aim to create an uncomplicated and enjoyable method that allowed anyone to describe, and so understand, the wine characteristics.
Contrary to the traditional "passive" wine tasting, you and your palate will be the true protagonists of the tasting.
We will taste and analyze two different high-quality Tuscan wines, but initially, I will not give you any description. Instead, I will guide you through the sensory analysis, teaching you our alternative method that describes the wine as it were a "Season," a "Place" and an "Animal."
At the end of the experience, you will create your own "Wine Tale" that you will bring with you, as ​​a ​memory of this unique wine experience!
This experience follows the philosophy of conscious hedonism: without understanding, there can be no real pleasure. Hence the difference between "to consume" and "to savor.​​"
