At “Il Querciolo”, for some time now, we have been organizing at least one walk a week in the vineyards, lasting about two hours, passing through the property's land.
Cesare accompanies the guests along the way and explains, especially to the children, how to take care of the vines so that they can give the best grapes year by year. Through the fields you can smell the scents of the earth, the silences of the countryside or the songs of the birds and you can perceive the calm rhythm of nature.
Upon request, for guests or even for external groups, it is possible to organize tastings of syrah and oil, accompanied by cold cuts platters, bruschetta or other seasonal specialities.
The tasting includes a visit to our small cellar to explain the winemaking process, show the equipment used and the area where barriques are aging, which is located, underground, in the dark and always at a controlled temperature.
Then, depending on the period, we can taste the wines outside, under the terrace or in the tasting room. The duration of the visit with tasting is normally about two hours.
Annagiulia and Luciano created the “pizza party” years ago, a wonderful moment to show all those who want to attend how to make real Italian pizza.
On this event, guests will not only have to roll out the base of the pizza and fill it but put it and cook in a wood oven. The dinner ends with a taste of typical desserts, cantucci with Vinsanto Toscano, produced by Cesare, only for friends.
The pizza evening does not have a fixed day in the week and is held with a minimum number of at least 15 participants.
