Usiglian del Vescovo wine tasting
Here is what you will live
A favourable microclimate, unique, exceptionally sandy soil rich in marine fossils, an ageing cellar located in the original medieval stronghold which houses medium and large barrels at ideal temperature and humidity levels, a new winery with vinification, storage and bottle ageing sections, and a bottling line, built in line with modern techniques.
Everything here reminds of craftsmanship, from the pruning of vineyards, the harvest which is done manually in small baskets, to the grapes selected on a vibrant belt. By tasting the wines, also thanks to the nice welcome extended to all estate tourists, you will discover centrated and elegant wines, real oenological jewels.
By purchasing this wine tasting experience, at you arrival at Usiglian Del Vescovo you will have a presentation of the wine-growing company into three stages: a walk through the vineyard, a guided tour to the newly-built vinification cellar and ageing cellar (barrels stockroom) set within the Villa of Usigliano. This is followed by the wine tasting that could be accompanied by typical Tuscan products.
