Tasting Experiences

We invite you to join us for one of our wine and food experiences at Querceto di Castellina and explore the world of great Italian winemaking together at our organic wine estate. 

We’ve crafted the experiences at Querceto with the intention of fully engaging your senses and enhancing your knowledge on the rich winemaking and culinary traditions of Tuscany.

From the portfolio wine tasting of our current wines releases to our Taste of Tuscany lunch and wine tasting, you'll learn about our vision, the history of the estate and our winemaking philosophy. For those looking for an extremly unique and memorable evening exploring the world of Tuscan wine and cuisine, take a closer look at our Vineyard Dinner by Candlelight - a truly one-of-a-kind wine and food experience. 

We want every guest at the estate to have a highly personalized experience at Querceto therefore all of our tours, tastings, lunches, etc. are private.

Delight in the art of wine & food pairing

Wine & Artisanal Cheese Pairing

Our wine & artisanal cheese pairing is the result of our collaboration with De Magi Alchemy of Cheeses - an Italian artisanal cheese producer and purveyor.

We've carefully selected the featured cheeses working along with the De Magi team to find those that best enhance the flavors of our wines. During this experience you'll enjoy 4 different Tuscan cheeses from De Magi paired to perfection with 4 of our current wine releases.

Test the age-worthiness of our Podalirio

Vertical Tasting

The beauty of a vertical wine tasting is to see how a particular wine evolves over time and our Podalirio Merlot has consistently proven to be an age-worthy wine. Experience this first hand with a tasting of 5 old vintages of our single-varietal Merlot and see how unique every year can be and learn about the various factors that come into play with each growing cycle.
