Escape grey skies and early mornings and be transported to the peace and harmony of the beautiful Italian countryside. There are a variety of guestrooms, apartments and a villa, each embodying the essence of rustic Italian charm, with exposed wooden beams, terracotta floors, stone fireplaces and private terraces. Wake each morning to the sound of birdsong and sip coffee on the terrace overlooking the ripe vineyard. The most luxurious offerings include lavish little details, such as private gardens and Jacuzzis, and the extensive accommodation options means that Borgo Casa al Vento can accommodate large wedding parties too.
You simply can’t escape to Borgo Casa without sampling the flavours of the organic wines produced in the wine estate. Borgo Casa al Vento can organise a guided tour of the surrounding vineyards, with a tasting experience that offers the finest wine as Chianti Classico Riserva Foho or Chianti Classico Aria, or the limited edition of the Super Tuscan FATAG. You’ll even find a Wine Therapy Room, where you can lose yourself in a world of ambient candlelight and gentle music, whilst you sip vino with your loved one in the warmth of a private bath. You could also embody some old-fashioned romance with a horseback ride through the Italian countryside, or by learning about the art of Italian cuisine at one of the hotel’s traditional cooking classes.
There is a delicious Italian proverb, ‘chi va a letto senza cena tutta la notte si dimena’, which translates to mean ‘those who got to bed without eating will regret it throughout the night’. There’s no chance of that happening at Borgo Casa al Vento, with a restaurant dedicated to ‘the rediscovery of taste’. The passionate chef uses the noble traditions of Chianti cuisine and uses local ingredients and homemade extra virgin olive oil, produced alongside their vino in the wine cellar. For more intimate dining, you could opt for a romantic picnic for two in the Italian countryside, where you shall be given a feast of flavours with a hamper of traditional delicacies and a bottle of Chianti Classico.
