Hiking in Tuscany or maybe mountain biking?
For those who are more interested in exploring the nature, there are many opportunities for hiking and mountain biking in the mountains, hills and the valley. The nearby Lake Trasimeno offers many water sport activities and is ideal for walks and picnics on the shore. Two of the islands in the lake can be reached by a short ferry ride.
Each work is carried out with care and hand. We attach great importance to renouncing the use of chemicals. The selection of trees and shrubs supports the natural cycle and the protection of plants. The pruning, thinning vines and harvesting grapes and olives are all done by hand. In order to make work more environmentally friendly, we installed a photovoltaic system on the roof of our company in 2009.

The wine of Tuscany

Picked and harvested by hand, the fruits arrive without damage for further processing. This guarantees a high quality end product, rich in aroma and flavor. Each step of pressing of the grapes to filling of the finished wine in the bottles is carried out by us personally. Working with an enologist also guarantees the quality of the products. And of course, all our wines can be tasted during your vacation.
Tuscany is not only famous for its fine wines and olive oil, but also for its cuisine. Vasco Nocentini, the owner of the winery, provides you gladly with his excellent traditional cuisine. All the dishes are prepared with the freshest ingredients from our garden. Due to the mild climate and fertile land, we are in the position to grow vegetables all year round and are able to eat seasonally, following the rhythm of the plants that are available to us. As our vines and olive trees, we are raising our products in a biological way. Meat and cheese are sourced from the neighbors and farmers in the area.
For those of you who want to know how pasta and gnocchi is made by himself you can participate in a cooking class. Enjoy Vasco’s tasty Tuscan dishes and learn how you can prepare local and traditional delicacies yourself.
Besides the Mediterranean cuisine Italy is also famous for its leather work, such as Handbags and shoes. Countless small shops offer a wide selection of leather craftsmanship. Friends of antiques, ceramics and gold get also their money’s worth. But the nearby Val di Chiana Outlet Village is certainly worth a trip to one or the other, too.
