    Winery Visit & Lunch at Palazzo Vecchio

Winery Visit & Lunch at Palazzo Vecchio

  • City: Montepulciano
  • Duration: 6 hours (1 hour each way and 4 hours visit)

Overview

Situated on the road between Montepulciano and Cortona near the Val di Chiana lies Fattoria Palazzo Vecchio, a 70-acre historic estate dating back to the 13th century. From its origins as a foundling’s hospital and then a country estate of the Medici family used to spy on the nearby papal states, Palazzo Vecchio is now owned by the Sbernadori family and is dedicated to quality winemaking.

The day begins with a tour of the estate, including the vineyards, the fermentation cellars, and the aging cellars. You will then proceed to the mangiatoio, and now decorated in a delightful, warm manner by the winery owner's daughter, Marialuisa. Here, you will be invited to sit down to enjoy a wine-paired meal.

Lunch is a four-course Tuscan meal, beginning with farm fresh cheeses from a nearby sheep farm which will be offered with homemade jams made from fruit trees growing on the estate; this course is paired with Dogana Rosso di Montepulciano. The meal continues with a pasta dish, such as homemade pici with fresh tomato and garlic sauce, wild boar sauce, or Chianina beef sauce. This is paired with Maestro Vino Nobile di Montepulciano before the third course, a meat dish with vegetables, is served with Riserva Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. Dessert will be homemade pie or cake, and is served (exclusively for Select clients) with the estate's prized Vin Santo di Montepulciano, which is aged for five years in small oak barrels. Lunch concludes with coffee and the option to purchase and ship wine to the USA.

Grazie Mille Select Italy for helping us book our private wine tour! The WHOLE FAMILY had a great time! Doing a wine tour in the middle of Tuscany has been on my bucket list for a while, and I never imagined crossing it off with two kids involved. I was a bit skeptical at first about doing a wine tour with our boys Luca, age 3, and Rylind, age 1, but Select Italy assured me that the tour could be modified and made more kid friendly. Select Italy even worked with the winery to meet my allergy needs for our meal, as well as planning dishes that our children would enjoy. At times throughout our tour and meal, the boys did get a little impatient and wanted to do their own thing, but this was not a problem. Federica, our amazing tour guide, helped us out by introducing the boys to the family pets and she even got them some drawing materials during our meal. As parents, it can sometimes be difficult and overwhelming to go out and do things with children, but we felt very welcomed as if we were guests visiting at a friend's home. The whole day was delightful and such a wonderful experience. From the tour, to slurping up pasta, to sipping on various wines of Tuscany, to playing with the family pets, we all enjoyed our time at Palazzo Vecchio, and we are thankful for their hospitality. Select Italy played a big part into making this day happen for me and my family, and I really don’t think we could have made it all come together without them. Salute to more adventures to come.
