At Fattoria del Cerro a picnic "on the edge of the vineyard" in Tuscany

  • 19/07/2022

A return to déjeuner sur l'herbe. Few things like a pic-nic have the same evocative power, and it is not by chance that the famous impressionist Édouard Manet made it a masterpiece of art. A blanket to spread on the lawn, a basket full of products, a glass of excellent wine and the surrounding tranquility recall lightness, freedom and a sense of deep communion with nature. In recent years, thanks to the pandemic and the new trends in food and wine tourism, pic-nic is one of the most sought after experiences by tourists, who choose farmhouses, resorts and farms capable of an innovative offer, taking into account the territory and quality of local products. 

We tell you about our new gourmand proposal, that of a pic-nic in the vineyard in Tuscany, among Fattoria del Cerro's 93 hectares of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano.

The rediscovery of a gourmet tradition

Whether in the vineyard or in the middle of a meadow, with the background of a farm or a rustic farmhouse, the pic-nic is one of the most established trends in these two years, especially combined with local tourism. With the summer, in fact, the desire to spend time in open spaces increases to rediscover that joie de vivre made of carefree, freedom and contact with nature. But not only that, because there is also the desire to experience the area slowly to discover all the beauties it can offer, starting with food and wine treasures. 

In this sense, the pic-nic is the experience that embodies this philosophy in all respects, and is perfect for both nature lovers and food and wine lovers. In recent years, there has been a real rediscovery of this ancient tradition, which lends itself to being lived in company, not only as a couple, but also with families or friends, for a moment of shared happiness.

Picnic in the vineyard in Tuscany: the best of the territory in the proposal of Fattoria del Cerro

The tranquility of the countryside, the hills of Montepulciano that light up with gold at sunset, the chirping of crickets and cicadas during those summer evenings full of wonder. An unforgettable experience of total relaxation, to be lived at the "edge of the vineyard", near the elegant Relais of Villa Grazianella in Fattoria del Cerro. This is our idea of a contemporary and authentic pic-nic, and what better opportunity than this to enjoy the harmony of the countryside, savoring local products and the best labels of the Estate? 

After a walk through the villages and historic towns not far away, such as Siena or Montepulciano, or a regenerating ride on an e-bike through the white roads to visit the vineyards, you can relax in this suggestive natural setting. Guests are offered a basket with everything they need for a picnic for two or more people, with food and products at km0, from cheeses to cured meats, including cold dishes and desserts. For those who wish, it is possible to customize the baskets with vegetarian and gluten free foods, on request.

To accompany everything, obviously a bottle of wine cannot be missing, or the "Silìneo" Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, for those who love reds with strong references to black fruits and cherries, or the Cerrus Brut or the Rosè, for those who prefers fresher and more delicate flavors, but still original and deep. 

Pic-nic in the vineyard in Tuscany is an opportunity to spend a moment of lightness and conviviality different from the usual, perhaps waiting for the sunset and nightfall for an even more magical experience, thanks to the evening lighting.
