Wine tasting and olive oil at Belmonte Vacanze.
During your holiday in Tuscany you must not miss a good wine and oil tasting in the ‘Chianti Classico‘ region of Montaione, between San Gimignano and Volterra.
The green vineyards offer us bunches of red and white grapes, matured under the Tuscan sun. Local producers such as Eva and Leonardo from the Agricola Beconcini in San Miniato, they know the art of making fine wine. A wine tasting is a moment of pure pleasure and also an opportunity to learn about wine and its production technique . For this reason, after a wine tasting in Montaione, Tuscany, you will have even more appreciation of a good glass of red Chianti or a Vernaccia from San Gimignano, savoring it under the sunset at your apartment in Belmonte Vacanze, perhaps after a horse ride in Tuscany between the
Wine and Olive Oil Tasting at Belmonte Vacanze.
Each week, from April to October we are pleased to invite Eva and Leonardo from the Agricola Beconcini, a couple of young wine producers from the nearby town of San Miniato. Emanuela will delight you with her selection of aged Chianti wines produced at her organic farm, going from red to white and then finishing with a tasting of grappa and vin santo. All accompanied by a tasty slice of bread with the organic oil extracted from the olive trees that surround you in Belmonte.
The tasting will be held one day a week depending on the availability of Eva.
The tasting is free. If you want you can buy bottles of wine, grappa or vin santo, produced by Azienda Agricola Beconcini.
Here is a selection of wines that Eva will share with you:
