La Lastra winery visit with wine tasting in SienaVine, Wine and Life: From pruning to the rite of tasting
In the hills of the gorgeous Tuscan countryside, just 2kms away from the medieval centre of Siena, our Visit with Wine Tasting “Vine, Wine and Life” is an experience to grasp the emotion, the culture, the history, the technology and the respect for environment that lie under the cork of each bottle of our organic wine.
For all the wine enthusiasts, our visit “Vine, Wine and Life” is a journey in space and time that starts with the winter pruning of vines and ends up with the rite of wine tasting. During the visit to our ORGANIC vineyards we will go through all the main steps of the agronomic, phenolic and organic cycle in order to understand the complexity of the “vineyard” ecosystem and of an agriculture with low environmental impact.
We will then move to our historical cellar where we will discover the chemical-physical and microbiological processes that make a quality production.
We will continue our journey moving to the sensorial tasting room to grasp the organoleptic complexity of our wines and have a better understanding of them.
The visit will end up with a light-lunch to experience the emotions that the right combination food/wine can offer to our palate and to our spirit!
