Hike & Taste experience from Siena
Durations: 8 Hour(s)

A special hike, a walk that will help you enjoy the city of Siena and reach a winery very close to the city center!
This morning you depart from your hotel in Siena, you reach Piazza del Campo which is your departing point for this hike tour. From here you have to take the Via Banchi di Sopra and pass by the famousÂ Palazzo Salimbeni. Keep on walking until Porta Camollia. You follow Via Corso Vittorio Emanuele and Viale Camillo Benso Conte di Cavour for less than 1 mile before turning left and get to the Strada di Marciano. From here it will be less than 10 minutes to reach the winery.
The walking tour is 7 miles roundtrip departing from Piazza del Campo and this allows you to have a great hike in the city of Siena before reaching the splendid winery of La Lastra, where you should arrive by 11.30 for enjoying a special winery tour.
At your arrival you'll meet a member of the family for the vineyard tour. "Environment before business, People before brand, Substance before shape", this is the claim and philosophy of this winery!
During the visit toÂ the ORGANIC vineyards youÂ will go through all the main steps of the agronomic, phenolic and organic cycle in order to understand the complexity of the â€śvineyardâ€ť ecosystem and of an agriculture with low environmental impact.Â
You will then move to ourÂ historical cellarÂ where we will discover the chemical-physical and microbiological processes that make a quality production. and thenÂ continue the journey moving to theÂ sensorial tasting roomÂ to grasp the organoleptic complexity of their wines and have a better understanding of them.
The visit will end up with aÂ light-lunchÂ to experience the emotions that the right combination food/wine can offer to our palate and to our spirit!
At the end of the experience you may want to walk back or you can easily call a taxi with the assistance of the wine hospitality manager.
