A REVOLUTION IN WINE TOURISM


Cradled in the heart of the Tuscan hills in Montepulciano, the property is owned by Luigi, who started the Vino Nobile wine production in 1996 thus fulfilling a lifelong dream, begun by his grandfather 50 years earlier and inherited through his father Santo Pellegrino, today supported by Matteo, his son.

Named after an intimate and panoramic chapel nestled in the vineyards surrounding the estate. The modern and recently restored wine cellar is made up of an underground production area for the wine-making and aging processes, a cosy intimate wine tasting-room and a welcoming wine lounge, opening on to a panoramic terrace overlooking the vineyards.

Why Not....

WINE LABS, WINE EXPERIENCES – WINE LEARNING GAMES: Act the main role in an active exclusive wine adventure and get your hands dirty with wine!!! Not just passive tours, in which you only visit the winery and see the wine production techniques, but real exciting winery activities.

A – Stainless steel Tank, Barrique and Casks - Stainless steel or oak, young wines or aged ones: would you like to try and become well acquainted with all of them? Welcomed as true friends, you will tour the winery, explore the production area and savour joy in glasses of still ageing wines tapped directly from the stainless steel tanks, from big Slavonian oak casks and from French barrique. Tutored by an expert sommelier, you will compare these with the bottled wines and analyse the differences! An ancient gesture in modern times to be taken together with producers.
