GUIDED TOUR

Guided

Tour

The wine tour includes a visit to our cellar. This visit does not end in observing the vineyards, the panorama and tasting the wine, but it becomes an immersive experience where, thanks to a guide, you are accompanied to the discovery of the wines grown in that place, in a 360-degree path that it embraces both the vineyards and the winery itself.

Subsequently, the winemaking and aging process is closely observed and explained within the cellar. The link with the territory is always central, just as it is in the identity and character of the wine produced. The visit to the cellars naturally changes depending on the time of year.
In the months of September / October the staff will be busy with the harvest and it will be possible to admire this magical and ritual moment “live”. In the following months, the focus is more on the production process. In this regard, it must be said that a fundamental phase of the tour is precisely that relating to the visit of the various rooms where this process is carried out, from fermentation to bottling, as well as of course the spaces in which the wine is stored.

The Moments

After a historical and cultural introduction to Castelfranco, the area in which the Le Macchie Winery is located, we proceed to a walk in the vineyards to closely observe the plant, the type of soil, the forms of cultivation and the various pruning techniques, with ampelographic information.

The route continues inside the winemaking cellar, where they can observe the steel tanks in which the transformation from must to wine takes place. And here, during the harvest period, the smell is intoxicating and you can watch all the processes.

The tour proceeds in the barrel cellar, entirely underground, where the wines age under suggestive vaults and then move to the bottling room

THE TASTING

The tasting is one of the most anticipated moments, it is the real closing of the circle. You have known the soil, the territory, the history of those wines and of those who produced them, you have discovered how they are produced and stored and now is the time when all these stories acquire a meaning and a meaning: tasting.

The tasting takes place inside our historic cellar. The basements, recently renovated, contain rooms in which there are the remains of the tanks in which the grapes were pressed and fermented as early as 1400. The cellar has excellent conditions for the conservation and refinement of wines, for this reason inside we keep our classic method sparkling wine, the latter in fact carries out the second fermentation in the bottle within these evocative environments. The little light, the cool and constant temperature, mean that the bubbles of our sparkling wine are fine and persistent.
