    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Azienda Agricola La Lastra, Strada della Befana 2/A, 53100, Siena Italy

    In a very simple way, directly in the vineyards, we will talk about the agronomic cycle of our organic grapes with the help of genetics, physiology, ecology, pruning, handling of the soil and harvesting.

    Duration: 50 minutes

    Stop At: Azienda Agricola La Lastra, Strada della Befana 2/A, 53100, Siena Italy

    In the cellar we will take into consideration the basic concepts for a quality wine making, analyzing the chemical, physical and microbiological details of our wines, during all the main steps of the process from grape to wine: stemming-crushing, alcoholic fermentation, maceration, malolatic fermentation, racking off, stabilizing, bottling and refinement.

    Duration: 40 minutes

    Stop At: Azienda Agricola La Lastra, Strada della Befana 2/A, 53100, Siena Italy

    In our equipped tasting room we will taste 4 of our organic wines, all typical of the area, in order to understand all the sensorial notes with the help of our eyes, nose and palate. A triumph of perceptions to exalt what we love most about wine: the complex world of emotions.

    Duration: 40 minutes

    Stop At: Azienda Agricola La Lastra, Strada della Befana 2/A, 53100, Siena Italy

    The tasting will end up with a “light-lunch” combining wine and food. We will offer seasonal menus in order to satisfy the palate and keep a health body, combining food with one of our wines and with our organic extra-virgin olive oil.

    Duration: 50 minutes

His explanation of respecting the rules for Chianti and the rules for organic farming were clear and illuminating. The vistas, wine, and homemade farm-to-table lunch...More

    Just perfect. Lots of interesting facts about the production process of organic wines, a short but very informative tour of the vineyard, and a wine tasting - one white wine (Vernaccia), and two reds - Chianti, and a blend of Merlo, Cannaiolo and San Giovese....More

    The winery is about 3 miles outside of the main center of Siena. You can take a bus and walk about a mile, take a taxi all the way, or walk the whole way in about an hour.
