What you'll do

After the welcome in the frescoed sitting room, we will explain something interesting about the house, the building "Palazzo Borghesi" and our family's history. We will offer you the Tuscan appetizer and you will taste of the youngest wine “Arpaia". The second wine you will taste is the "Rosso di Montalcino", which has a short aging. The third wine, is one of the best red wine in the world, the "Brunello di Montalcino", with an aging of at least 5 years. Every wine is produce by our family's winery "Le Chiuse" of Montalcino managed by a member of the Biondi Santi family. We will let you appreciate the differences between the 3 wines, tasting typical tuscan food as pecorino, salami, ham, sausage and bread with a special pate. In case of good weather, it's possible to enjoy the wine tasting even on the panoramic terrace! Have you ever enjoyed a wine tasting in a medieval building with view? We are ready to offer you this unforgettable experience!
