Wine-making experience at Fattoria Viticcio

  • Wine-making experience at Fattoria Viticcio

    In Fattoria Viticcio, a local wine estate, you can dream the winemaker’s dream. Unusually, you can also pretend to be a Tuscan winemaker for a while. This behind-the-scenes blending experience can be comfortably fitted into a morning or afternoon. The session allows you to blend your own wine and even take home a bottle of your personal wine. The process involves a guided tour and tasting, including sampling wine direct from the barrels. The estate lies only 2 km outside Greve in Chianti so makes for an easy walk through the vineyards to town. There’s no excuse for not indulging in a leisurely tasting. What’s more, as this is a family-run winery, the mood is more hands-on than at grander Tuscan estates.

    The alternative experience is a winery visit and guided tasting of four wines (three Chianti Classico and one Super Tuscan, also known as an IGT). The wines are paired with Viticcio Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Tuscan salami and cheeses from the celebrated L’Antica Macelleria Falorni butcher’s in Greve. The estate produces not just Chianti Classico wines, along with Vin Santo and Grappa, but also wines from Bolgheri and Maremma vineyards, including full-bodied Morellino di Scansano. Their 60 hectares of vineyards encompass classic Chianti Sangiovese grapes, as well as Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Syrah, and Vermentino.
