The Italian company Terres d’Exception is offering a 7 day exclusive wine tour through Tuscany. The overnight stays will be organised at Borgo San Felice. Located in the Chianti Classico hillsides near Siena, surrounded by 14 hectares of owned vineyards, Borgo San Felice is a 5 star Relais & Chateaux Hotel. It welcomes its guests in 29 rooms and 17 suites, located in the buildings of the historical village: an ancient medieval village, totally restored and refurbished in 1990. A great setting indeed for a wonderful stay in Tuscany…
The 7 day programme includes a visit to the San Felice Vineyard, magical dinners in Sienna and a visit of the Fontodi Estate, renowned for their Chianti Classico, Syrah and Pinot Nero. Fontodi is located in the heart of Chianti Classico, precisely in the valley which lies south of the town of Panzano and is called the “Conca d’Oro” (the golden shell) because of its amphitheatre shape.
Cooking at the Scuola di Cucina di Lella
The programme continues with a visit to the Estate Isole e Olena and will then take you to Firenze for a truly unique experience: a cooking class in Firenze at the Scuola di Cucina di Lella. And there is more.
After visiting the Estate Tre Rose in Montepulciano, you will have dinner at l’Andana: it was once a Medici villa where Grand Duke Leopold II and his court resided during the summer season.
In spring 2004, Alain Ducasse indulged his passion for Italy by setting up a new resort in the heart of the Tuscan Maremma: the 5 star Hotel l’Andana. And this is where you will enjoy a candle-light dinner.
The last day, you will head for the Isola Giglio and visit the Ansonaco Estate. Giglio is the second largest of the Tuscan Islands, with a total area of 22 square kilometres. It is 50 kilometres south of Elba and separated from the Argentario Promontory by a 16 kilometre stretch of water.
The island offers you a wonderful combination of sandy beaches, cliffs and coves, mountainous scenery and serene hiking paths through the unspoilt countryside with glorious views over the surrounding sea and the other islands.
It is also famous for the production of the amber‐coloured Ansonaco wine. Ready for an exclusive taste of Tuscany?
