Virtual Noble Wine Tasting Experience
The Virtual Noble Wine Tasting Experience is in Montepulciano. I have welcomed many people in the Gattavecchi winery last year.
Cantina Gattavecchi opened its doors again on June 20. With this free online wine experience I like to share my knowledge of wine with you!
While tasting the wine I describe the color, characters and flavours. I will show you the underground wine cellar and after the tasting we take a virtual walking tour to the main square in Montepulciano: Piazza Grande. The square is dominated by ancient buildings.
The online Noble Wine Tasting Experience is great fun for wine lovers of all levels!
I use the application Zoom for the Virtual Wine Tasting.
The English virtual wine tasting is every Sunday at 4 PM CET time. Participation is free.
“In the times of a pandemic, when you cannot fly out to experience new cities, a virtual wine tour with Sylvia is what I needed. Her knowledge on the wine and history, her story telling and live videos of Montepulciano made me feel, like I was in Italy for a brief moment. Loved it!”
Wine and Food Experience
The Wine and Food Experience is a great Italian experience and I strive to give you the best experience and memories of your holiday. I am a certified FISAR sommelier and I have successfully completed my level 2 WSET study.
The Wine and Food Experience is a wonderful experience in Montepulciano. We meet at the medieval church “Santa Maria dei Servi”. I start telling you about the wine Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and the historical wine cellar Gattavecchi.
We visit the underground wine cave. In this cave the wine ages up for 2 years in wood from Slavonia.
After the tour we go to the restaurant for a wine tasting and a delightful lunch.
The restaurant is open on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Meeting point is 12 PM CET time at the Santa Maria dei Servi church. Price is 65 Euro per person.
To keep a safe distance from others the maximum number of participants is 6.
“It was a fantastic experience. The atmosphere, wine and food were superb. Sylvia is a wonderful and very kind host. Strongly recommended!”
For guests of Villa in Umbria I already organised several wine tastings in Montepulciano and wrote a blog about it.
Run and Wine Experience
Running along the vineyards is an unforgettable experience. The Run and Wine Experience is about 5k running. The trail is challenging with running up and down hills several times.
Participants should be able to run or walk at least 3k.
The start and finish is at the San Biagio church. The run is every Sunday at 8.30 AM CET time. The price is 10 Euro per person.
Small group runs are safe during the situation of the Coronavirus. Maximum group size is 4.
“The best part about the run/walk was meeting Sylvia, who has lived in Italy for 10+ years and spoke to us about the history and gave us winery tips – but most of all has a lovely personality and it was a pleasure being in her company.”
