Visit the Vineyards of Volterra This Summer
Resting magnificently on a tranquil plateau overlooking the ancient city of Volterra sits one of Tuscany’s most talked about modern vineyards Monterosola. Surrounded by history and heritage yet with a firm vision on the future, this striking cantina embodies the spirit of modern sustainable winemaking. Since its opening in 2019 Monterosola’s unique organic wines have made their mark and vineyard tours and wine tastings are in demand throughout the year. This summer, Monterosola is adding a series of cultural events to its winemaking calendar including sunset wine tastings, gourmet picnics, musical evenings, and an impressive operatic event with gala dinner being held in July.
Most recently, the gardens surrounding the tower have been landscaped giving the whole cantina a quintessentially Tuscan atmosphere perfect for events, celebrations and wine tours. With a sweeping avenue of cypress trees greeting its guests as they wind along the private drive, Monterosola truly is a destination winery with a definite wow factor.
This season, wine tasting experiences have been redesigned to include the option of a light picnic style lunch. Wines are paired with delicious local meats and cheeses from Volterra, homemade bread, organic salads from Monterosola’s own organic kitchen garden and homegrown olive oil. If you are a true wine enthusiast then why not opt for the full-blown wine masterclass with 8 wines accompanied by a seasonal light lunch and rounded-off with Monterosola’s signature grappa and homemade biscotti.
For a luxury wine tour in Tuscany then look no further than Monterosola with its stunning views, outstanding red and wine wines, romantic cloistered courtyard, 5 storey stone tower, cellars and wine-bar. Book ahead for tours, tastings and lunches and contact the cantina direct for more information on musical events or private hire.
