Tenuta Valdipiatta open from Monday to Friday from 9.00 a.m. to 1.00 p.m. and from 2.00 p.m. to 5.00 p.m.
We have already suggested you here
the winery Tenuta di Valdipiatta in Montepulciano
and now I’ll tell you why.
Our region, Tuscany, is full of wineries so it is not possible for us to know each one of them.
But, as the saying goes, if Mohammed will not go to the mountain the mountain goes to Muhammad, and something like that happened to me with Tenuta Valdipiatta.
In Italy we have a daily program TV called TG2 Costume e Società and I have to thanks this program for introducing me to this winery.
In fact, on February 27th, 2009 this program spoke about the Tenuta Valdipiatta, its products and the project Adopt a barrel.
Fortunately I was at home watching the TV at that moment and what impressed me too much was the project Adopt a barrel. It offers to wine lovers wishing to become winemakers, without owning either vineyards or cellars.
When adopting a barrel you become the principal player in their wine producing process and create a product that totally satisfies your own taste. At the same time you start a personal and very privileged partnership with the Estate.
I have not had yet the opportunity to visit Tenuta di Valdipiatta but I recommended that to some guests of Borgo Grondaie and they loved it and thanks me a lot for the suggestion.
