Virtual Tour of the Cellars

The will to transmit their passion for wines brought Francesco and Veronica Passerin d'Entrèves to create a museum dedicated to the process of wine-making in the ancient historical cellars of the Fattoria Dianella.

The goal is to allow visitors the opportunity to discover every single moment of farm life, from the grape harvest to olive picking and the wine production and aging phases.

The guided visit winds through the different room and areas: from the ancient wine cellars with the oak barrels to the underground cellar; from the "vinsantaia" (room where we put the "vinsanto" barrels) to the "orciaia" (the area where we store the olive oil) to the aging zone and the present wine-making cellar. Along the path, several pieces of old machinery no longer in use are displayed along with wine-making tools that tell the story of older methods of bottling, filtering, labelling and plugging up. Each displayed object has a history to tell and the guide will help in the telling.

At the end of this fascinating experience, guests will be introduced to a wine tasting in the hall close to the wine shop. The tasting will be accompanied by typical Tuscan food.

Upon request, it is possible to enrich the path with a visit of the vineyards.
