San Donatino is an organic winery in Castellina in Chianti, and the first natural wine producer in the surrounding area, where alongside vineyards, seasonal vegetables, animals and olive trees also thrive. In this unique wine-tasting experience, the terroir, tales and production processes of San Donatino is brought to your luxury villa in Tuscany.
Just one of a series of ‘Winery’ in-villa tastings led by Gio Stella — this is a passion project for the Tuscan winemaker and spotlights the quality wines from the local wineries he works with. His goal as a winemaker is to make the best wine in the kindest way for the environment. And his goal for every wine tasting — is to take you on a journey through the place that gives birth to each glass of wine and bring you the full story behind each bottle.
Discover the wines of Castellina in Chianti from your luxury villa
This private in-villa wine tasting will be led by Gio Stella who has hand-picked five organic Chianti wines, produced on the San Donatino estate in Castellina. The winery produces organic white wines, orange wines, red wines and, from the summer of 2023, sparkling as well. Gio will lead you on a tasting journey from the unique perspective of an experienced winegrower who has cultivated the vines and nurtured grapes in the very wines on your table. The San Donatino Wine Tasting offers a refreshing and authentic perspective on appreciating Chianti wines, rich with stories of biodynamic and organic oenology here in Tuscany. And the best part is, you get to experience a fantastic, genuine family-run winery from the comfort and privacy of your Tuscan holiday rental.
Each tasting can also be accompanied and appropriately paired with the famous Tuscan bruschetta, topped with local seasonal ingredients at an additional cost. Alessandro
Pieragnoli runs a popular bruschetteria in San Gimignano and can tailor each accompanying dish to the wines you will taste.
