Organic Chianti: tour and tasting.

Experience hosted by Jara

2 hours
Includes food, drinks
Up to 6 people
Hosted in English, German, Italian

What you'll do

I would like to invite you to experience my home, Fattoria Villa Spoiano. A beautiful spot of land my parents deeply fell in love with in 1985. We will tour the farm starting from the panoramic terrace where you will learn about the history of the 400 year old building, the Chianti region and the current production of our organic farm. We passionately produce wine and olive oil, vegetables, pigs, cows.
After the introduction, we will go on a walk through the vineyards and olive groves to see how we tend the vines, work in the fields and, if we are lucky, we will be able to see our special workers in action: Irish Dexter cows. They live freely on our land and help us cut the grass in the vineyards and olive groves, fertilizing at the same time.
Once we’re done with the outdoor excursion we will visit the vinsantaia and the cellar where you will be able to learn about the transformation process from grapes into wine.
The experience will end by a table, tasting the products we just learned how to produce.

A few things to note:
-it is possible to reach us by bus but there are few, please have a look at the "notes" section to see the schedules or contact me beforehand.
-"standard" tour time is about 2 hours but if there are a lot of questions it might take a little longer. I love curious guests.
-please write me if you would like to arrange the tour at a different day/time.
Other things to note
You can reach us by bus line 370a Florence-Poggibonsi, the ride takes about 1h. This is the schedule and YouTube video : http://www.acvbus.it/orari/368-370.pdf

Born in the Chianti region and raised between vineyards, I am lucky to call this beautiful farm my home. I studied wine marketing and management at the University of Florence and I am currently completing my Sommelier certification.
I like to share my passion for wine but also the sustainable lifestyle philosophy, showing everyone what it is like to work on a farm and to live off the products we grow on our own.

Where you'll be

We will start from our garden. With the beautiful Chianti hills servig as background, I will tell you about the history of the farm and how it all started. We will then visit the Chapel and other important parts of the building such as the Vinsantaia and the Cellars. During the tour, if it's not raining, we will walk a little bit trough the land and see the vineyards and olive groves.

Unser Besuch auf dem Weingut von Jara und ihrer Familie hat uns exzellent gefallen! Jara gibt gute Einblicke in den Anbau, die Verarbeitung und die Herstellung von Wein und Olivenöl und geht super auf etwaige Fragen ein! Da es unsere erste richtige Weinprobe inklusive Führung war, hat sie es uns so erklärt, dass wir allem folgen konnten ohne überfordert zu sein. Dennoch konnte man erahnen, dass sie über ein großes Knowhow verfügt und auch für erfahrene Weinkenner einige neue Informationen bereit hält. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und die Verkostung war perfekt. Sie ist auf unsere Geschmäcker/Vorlieben eingegangen und hat alles dafür getan, dass wir uns wohlfühlen. Wir kommen sehr gern wieder und können eine herzliche Weiterempfehlung abgeben! :)

Wir hatten eine wunderbare Zeit bei Jara. Der Hof ist wunderschön und sie ist eine grossartige Gastgeberin, man merkt wirklich, mit wieviel Herzblut dieser Betrieb von Jara und ihrer Familie geführt wird. Der lehrreiche Rundgang wurde mit einer köstlichen Degustation gekrönt. Wir kommen sicher bald wieder und werden dieses Highlight gerne weiterempfehlen.

Villa Spoiano is a truly gorgeous and amazing place and winery! Jara was an excellent guide with great knowledge. It was a pleasure listening to the stories to explore the wine yards, the winery and to learn more about all of the processes and the agriturismo. The wine tasting and the delicious snacks and food was wonderful and tasty. Hopefully we will be back at some point in the future! Grazie Jara, it's been a pleasure!
