Day 2 Chianti

During the day, you can visit the Cellar where, under the tutelage of an experienced sommelier, you can taste a sampling of the regional wines and vintages produced on the estate. Or, visit the bar in the village square where you can sip Tuscan herbal teas prepared according to old recipes. You also have included access to the spa of Castel Monastero, designed by the operators of Urban Retreats, the largest and best known spa in Europe, located in Harrods in London.

Internationally renowned chef Gordon Ramsey of “Hell’s Kitchen” (US) and “Kitchen Nightmare” (UK) fame oversees the menus of both the Castel’s on-site restaurants. Under the direction of Alexander Delfanti, the “Gourmet” restaurant in the village square offers traditional Tuscan cuisine.
