fattoria di petroio

We organized, together with Fattoria di Petroio ( a wine tasting event for all conference participants.
Nested in the heart of Tuscany’s beautiful Chianti hills, just a few miles North of Siena, lies the Fattoria di Petroio, which produces wine (especially Chianti Classico) since 1924. Today, the 9 hectares of vineyards, enable Petroio to produce, with great passion and dedication, a yearly average of 25000 bottles of traditional and territorial Chianti Classico; 5000 bottles of the harvest’s best juice, the Chianti Classico Riserva, 5000 bottles of fresh, readily drinkable IGT Rosso Toscano called Poggio al Mandorlo, and the Barbera Pomorosso.
During this experience, you will have the occasion to taste three local wines, together with olive oil produced by Fattoria di Petroio and a selection of cheese from a producer from Maremma.XGLAB
