Wedding at Winery


Having a wedding reception at a wine cellar is a new trend. It was supported by wine makers of the region of Tuscany located in Italy. Such events are especially popular in the United States, New Zealand, and, of course, in France. There are even special agencies in these countries which specialize only in organizing wedding receptions at wine cellars.

It is no mere chance that Tuscany has become the next location for holding weddings at wine cellars. This Italian region is famous all over the world for old wine making traditions. “Chianti” is the most famous local product. Newlyweds and their guests can enjoy the outstanding taste of this red wine as well as try other Tuscan wines.
Wine makers of Tuscany have a number of programs for holding wedding receptions.

One option is provided by Donatella Cinelli Colombini at his winery, Donatella Cinelli Colombini nel suo Casato Prime Donne a Montalcino, in the town of Montalcino. Newlyweds can take photo shoots with the background of vineyards, try ripe wines, organize dances, and take a bite of a wedding cake. The room is draped with cloth and decorated with silver candleholders. It can house as many as fifty guests for such an unusual ceremony.

Those who love nature and country style should check the offer from the southern part of the Chianti valley. You can celebrate your wedding with a huge number of invited guests at the mansion of Fattoria del Colle. The villa, chapel, park, terrace with a view of the vinery, folk music, local food, “Chianti”, and a wine cellar with oak barrels are here for the newlyweds. All these will create ideal conditions for an unforgettable event.

The mansion of Fattoria del Colle welcomes newlyweds to spend their honeymoon there. The room designated for them was built as the love nest of the Grand Duke of Tuscany, Pietro Leopoldo, and his beloved Isabella.

Newlyweds from different countries have visited the mansion of Fattoria del Colle. They all have one thing in common - enthusiastic memories of the most important day of their life.
