The seasons follow on from one another, offering guests a different reason and a new experience to live in Bichi Borghesi. In spring, after a day spent among the Renaissance or medieval monuments of our towns, there is still time to watch the wild animals in our woods as they come out at dusk or seek shelter for the night, accompanied by nature guides. When the summer heat makes trips out unthinkable, nothing could be better than swimming in the pool surrounded by nature and then enjoying a delicious plate of Panzanella prepared by Loretta, perhaps in the shade of the great holm-oak... Autumn is like a basket full of all kinds of surprises. The harvest takes place in the second half of September and fills our squares and vineyards with colours, scents and a delightfully busy atmosphere; November, when the olives are picked, lights up the woods and vineyards with gold, vermilion and ochre set against the lapis lazuli blue Tuscan sky. This can be the best time to go horse riding or walking along our footpaths to the nearby Via Francigena; or to spend time preparing traditional Tuscan or Italian cuisine, guided by our friend, anthropologist and professional expert of excellent cuisine, Orsa Pellion di Persano. Our wine tastings are perfect in every season and are considered a must by our customers, many of whom return like clockwork every year. Accompanied by “no-miles” cheeses and cured meats, you will taste our Chianti DOCG, Chianti Riserva and IGT Rosso di Toscana wines, after visiting the estate and the old stables.
