Tuscany adventure along off-road tracks, with overnight stay
Treat yourself to a short vacation in the Tuscan countryside at Podere Montale Wine Resort!
Get pampered with wines from Sangiovese grapes, a typical Tuscan variety, in the fairy-tale atmosphere of the Valdorcia hills, gently outlined by rows of cypress trees, olive groves and vines.
The Podere Montale Wine Resort is a restored ancient hamlet, with several farmhouses used as agriturismo, swimming pool, restaurant, and the Parco degli Ulivi Millenari.
The overnight stay is at an executive suite, with breathtaking views of the Valdorcia and includes Italian and continental breakfast. Dinner served at the in-house restaurant.
Climb on board the off-road vehicle and, with the help of our guide, drive along dirt roads and trails inside the property: more than 200 hectares of Amiata scrubland, vines and olive groves. Stop at the private bank of the Ente River, wade it with the Jeep and relax with a swim. We will access the vineyards together to hear about viticulture techniques.
Upon arrival at the Podere Montale Wine Resort, you will be warmly welcomed by the enveloping aroma of our wine: an aperitif with a glass of our classic Tuscan wine, by Podere Montale!
Our reception has reserved an exceptional suite for you for a comfortable country retreat and restorative rest after the excitement of the Jeep Tour. The room has a large living area, with sofas, TV and breathtaking views of the valley below. The sleeping area has a double bed, bathroom and air conditioning!
The skilful hands of our Francesca have cooked a special breakfast for you, with the top-quality products we have selected from nearby producers of meats, cheeses, fruits. Homemade bread and pastries, fruit juice, farmer’s eggs, and homemade jams will provide the energy to get off to a good start!
Be fascinated by our wine expert guide’s stories about agriculture, particularly viticulture, here on the slopes of Mount Amiata, the dormant volcano. After visiting the vineyard we are most devoted to, we will access the cellars and Wine Odeon to check out and learn about the steps of winemaking: harvesting, grape’s pressing, fermentation and aging in oak barrels!
The Montale Wine Experience goes on on the beautiful Tuscan brick terrace, with a breathtaking view of the Valdorcia valley: three glasses of classic wine from Sangiovese grapes, with different processing and length of aging in French oak barrels, produced in an entirely artisanal way at Podere Montale!
