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.
Experience our estate flavors
This experience includes a guided tasting of the 4 current wine releases and always features either our Livia Bianco or Furtivo rosato and our three reds - L'aura Chianti Classico, Sei Chianti Classico Gran Selezione and our Podalirio IGT Merlot. You can enjoy the wines out on the winery terrace overlooking the estate vineyards or in our tasting room while a member of the family tells you the story behind each wine and Querceto di Castellina.
Explore, sip & savor
Winery Tour &
Learn more about our winemaking process with a visit to our winemaking facility and cellar followed by a guided tasting of the 4 current wine releases.
Your host will guide you through how we make our wines starting with the managing of the vineyards, the fermentation and aging of the wines and what it means to be an organic estate in Italy.
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 - and the organic cheese farm Podere Il Casale in Pienza.
We've carefully selected the featured cheeses working along with the De Magi and Podere Il Casale teams to find those that best enhance the flavors of our wines. During this experience you'll enjoy 4 different Tuscan cheeses paired to perfection with 4 of our current wine releases.
Test the age-worthiness of our wines
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 and our Sei Chianti Classico Gran Selezione has immense aging-potential. Experience this first hand with a tasting of 5 old vintages of our single-varietal Merlot or Sei and see how unique every year can be and learn about the various factors that come into play with each growing cycle.
Dive into True Tuscan flavors
A Taste of Tuscany Lunch & Wine Tasting
This 3-course lunch is designed to give you a true taste of the wine and food of Toscana.
Our chef Laura will serve pasta as a primo, followed by a selection of charcuterie, crostini and artisanal cheeses and then ending with a sweet finish. The dishes are served along with a tasting of our 4 current wine releases so you can experiment and see which wine you feel pairs best with each.
Indulge & awaken all of your senses
A Tuscan Feast
for the Senses
This indulgent lunch begins with a selection of 3 crostoni, followed by a pasta course and then a traditional Tuscan main dish and a side prepared by Laura and of course ends with dessert.
This is an ideal experience for those wanting a more substantial lunch – we’d definitely plan for a light dinner in the evening. Menu options can be requested in advance.
A once-in-a-lifetime food & wine experience
This exclusive private event begins with a glass of vino and small bites out on the terrace overlooking our estate vineyards. After the aperitivo (cocktail hour), we’ll accompany you to our Livia white wine vineyard where you’ll enjoy a 4-course dinner under the glow of fairy lights amongst the vines. This is for those seeking a once-in-a-lifetime food and wine experience in a memorable and incredibly unique setting.
