The Tuscany region
Tuscany is the fifth largest region of Italy. It is mostly an agricultural region as depicted in the backgrounds of so many renaissance paintings. While over the ages prestigious farming areas (such as the vineyards of Chianti and Monteplciano, the olive-groves near Lucca and the flower growing around Pistoia) have developed about 40% of Tuscany is still covered by woodland.
Siena is the origin of one of the most renowned wines in the world. The landscape features hills, fields, woodlands, rows of vines and olives groves, reminiscent of Sienese Quattrocento Painting. The orderly vineyards of sangiovese, canaiolo, malvasia and trebbiano - the varieties of grape which yields Chianti wine – are all found here. Since the days of the Grand Dukes the countryside has been dotted with farmhouses, villas, castles and turreted hamlets.
Montespertoli is an extraordinarily well preserved historic centre with a picturesque Church and square. Montespertoli is a typical Tuscan town, with vineyards, olive groves and fields as well as cypresses, white, country roads and typical stone farmhouses. Villa le Torri lets you experience the area, enjoying the view over the towers from the pool or discovering the landscape on foot or by renting one of our mountain bikes. The wines and olive oil of the area are second to none.
The 'I Lecci' Museum is provides a historical and scientific illustration of the wine making process, starting from soil analysis and ending with the vintner. The museum features an absolutely new experience, a laboratory of the senses for adults and children, where the visitor can smell the different aromas of wines, sometimes strong, sometimes delicate, focus on the colour and feel the consistency for a real discovery in which all the senses are involved in wine-tasting.
In less than an hour you can reach Pisa with the famous leaning tower, Siena, Volterra, S. Gimignano. Lucca and the Tuscan coast can be reached in about one hour by car. Rome, the Italian capital is about 230 km away.
In the village San Quirico in Collina, you can find a bank, post office, chemist, groccers and a restaurant.
