Pizza Party

“Prepare a pizza with pummarola 'ncoppa And you will see that the world will smile at you." (Pino Daniele)

A pizzaiolo will prepare just for you, your family and friends the most delicious pizza in the wood-fired oven, by the pool, while you can relax, with a nice glass of wine, surrounded by the magical atmosphere of our olive trees.

Cooking courses

Cooking doesn't just mean reading a recipe: it's a question of sensitivity, respect for ingredients and preparation times” (Chef Antonino Cannavacciuolo)

The Italian cuisine, famous throughout the world, is synonymous with authenticity, freshness, variety, sharing and unforgettable family times. We offer our clients the opportunity to arrange a unique and fun experience, to discover the Tuscan tradition and in the mean time create indelible moments. The cooking courses can be personalised and are very hands-on. A dinner can be arranged afterwards with the dishes that have been preparing during the Course.  These can be combined with a Wine Tasting.

Wine tasting

“Wine, especially in Italy, is the poetry of our Land.” (Mario Soldati)

Tuscany, cradle of the Chianti wine region, offers unique Wine experiences. An authentic Wine Tasting experience of the classic and excellent Chianti wines can be arranged at our Private Estate with one of our expert Sommelier while also tasting typical farm products that carry on local traditions.
