Immerse yourself in a private, sublime wine experience hosted by the great Antinori family at Badia a Passignano, a fourth century abbey founded by the archbishop of Florence in an enchanting, wooded spot 18 miles south of Florence.
Your experience starts with a visit to the beautiful Chianti vineyards and an introduction to Vine-growing process and production. Afterwards, you will step back in time and have the opportunity to visit the historic monastery and cellars of Badia a Passignano. The Vallombrosan monks that still inhabit this place are recognized for their love of books, for promoting scientific research (Galileo Galilei taught there in 1587) and for their meticulous care of the surrounding fields, especially the cultivation of grapevines and reforestation.
Following the tour, you will taste the inimitable flavors of the traditional Tuscan cuisine with a delectable lunch or dinner at the one-star Michelin Osteria di Passignano. The meal will be preceded by an extra-virgin olive oil tasting and accompanied by prestigious Antinori wines like Chianti Classico Riserva Badia a Passignano, Tignanello, Guado al Tasso, and Pian delle Vigne Brunello di Montalcino.
This is a one-of-a-kind experience: you will be captivated not only by the beauty of the Chianti countryside region, with its precious vineyards and olive groves, but also by the sense of peace and spirituality of the ancient abbey and by the warm welcome of the people.
