20 May Wine Travel in Tuscany
Wine Travel in Tuscany
Italian vacation farms, called “agriturismi” in Italian, are wonderful places to stay if you’re interested in wine. An agriturismo is a farmhouse or large estate home that offers both guestrooms and information about the products grown or made on the property. This could be a perfect opportunity to make a Wine Travel in Tuscany while trying our new format: Wine Games Team Building. During this format we will investigate the universe of wine. We have a possibility to get to know that distinction of secondary flavors is not so easy. Can you recognize a wine… with your eyes blindfolded? A wide range of aromas and flavors: roses, cherries, violets – this is the challenge that our participants have to accept!
When you see the bustling city of Turin (Torino), it’s hard to believe that Italy’s best wines come from this area – the city sprawls across a valley floor and practically vibrates with energy. Piedmont is home to 33 Denominazione di Origine Controllata and Denominazione di Origine Controllata Garantita wines. Many of Italy’s most prestigious wines, including Barbaresco, Barolo and Asti, are made here. If you’re looking for the best of the best Piemont wines, head for the Langhe district near the town of Alba. Made from nebbiolo grapes, Barolo wines have graced the tables of kings, popes and connoisseurs for centuries.
Tuscany is Chianti, Vino Nobile and Brunello country, and wine tourism is big business here. The growing popularity of the super Tuscan wines has brought even more attention to the area. Toscany is perfect location for our formats: Wine Tasting and Wine Team Building.
Have fun with your colleagues in a unprecedented sensorial team building and discover many aspects of the wine and your company. It is a great way to relax after work, a fantastic opportunity to connect a training event with a fun and sensorial activity.
You will be blindfolded, with some clouded glasses full of beverage in front of you… Hold your nose and try to guess: are you tasting wine? White, red or rosé? Prosecco or Champagne?
If you think you are a real wine gourmet, you want to challenge your colleagues, get more information about wine or just spend a different day of good taste and goo cheer, you cannot miss our wine tasting team working!
And, if it is true that in vino veritas, the best way to test employees and colleagues is to challenge them till the very last drop!
When it comes to Italian wine history, everything begins here, in southern Italy. In ancient times, Greek colonists brought grapes to the hills around Neapolis – today’s Naples – and cultivated the vines in Campania’s fertile volcanic soil. Roman emperors and farmers alike enjoyed wines made from the grapes we now call greco, falanghina and fiano. Pliny the Elder, who perished in the eruption of Vesuvius of A. D. 79, wrote about the falernian wines he enjoyed. Today, this grape is known as Falerno del Massico.
Although Campanian vineyards have always yielded generous harvests, the region did not make winemaking headlines until the early 1990s. With a large local population available to consume whatever wines they produced, Campanian winemakers had little incentive to reduce bulk production in favor of quality wines.
