Tours, Lunches and Tastings

Tours with lunch and product tastingsDuring the whole course of the year, by appointment, we hold tours that include tastings of our Chianti Classico DOCG wines, extra virgin olive oil, Cinta Senese DOP pork products and other related estate products. We hold tours, followed by lunches, starting at 12:30 that run for about two hours. If you contact us, we can set up your own private tour and lunch. We can handle groups of up to 20 people. 

Cooking ClassesAnna Rita holds cooking classes (by appointment only) on Wednesdays and Fridays. She teaches how to prepare complete meals in the wonderful traditions of Tuscany and Emilia-Romagna with ingredients that you can also find once you return home, so you can easily repeat the recipes for your family and friends. She will only accept groups of 4 to a maximum of 6 persons so that they can get her full individual attention.

In the spirit of our way of life, we also offer a series of products at Casamonti that are produced by friends of ours who also keep genuinity and organics high in their standards of consideration.

Truffle oil: we have friends who produce fantastic truffle oil. We provide our extra virgin olive oil and they macerate fresh white truffles in it until all the fragrance of the truffles is transmitted to the oil. Then it is lightly filtered and bottled - ready to add that special aroma and taste to any of your dishes. It is included in the lunch/tasting.

Balsamic Vinegar: other friends of ours produce a variety of high quality aged Balsamic Vinegars that we include in the lunch/tastings at Casamonti and that you can purchase in our shop.

Preserves: we provide a series of vegetables from our gardens to a small company who has the necessary authorizations to preserve them in pure olive oil. Most of the vegetables are picked early in the morning, and, as in the case of Porcini mushrooms, when they are in season. The products are very simply preserved and utterly delicious on their own on top of a slice of crunchy Tuscan bread or as accompaniment to meats and to our pork products. The products include some healthy pasta sauces that everyone should try.

Souvenirs: we had a lot of fun choosing different items to personalize that are great to take home as a reminder of what we hope was a wonderful day spent with us here in this wonderful Chianti Classico Region.
