TuscanTeam proposes the chance to enjoy our Chianti Sunset Vineyard Dinner. We have decided to create a special and small Sunset Vineyard Dinner every week from June to September only. The goal was to recreate with 2 of our team members and friends a memorable “cena toscana al fresco” (tuscan outdoor dinner), sipping Chianti wines, sampling local Tuscan dishes, listening to music, being in company, while you watch the Chianti sunset over the Tuscan vineyards.
Of course, a highlight of the Sunset Vineyard Dinner is the wine pairings of Azienda Agricola Oliviera’s wines. Azienda Agricola Oliviera which hosts the Sunset Vineyard Dinner is a family owned-and-operated winery, located in the heart of Chianti, between Siena and Castellina in Chianti. Chianti wines are served with each course, and the waiters circle table graciously, offering refills to guests as the conversation swells from a low hum to an exhilarating buzz.
The dinner is prepared and served by the staff of Andrea also known as “a man from Chianti”. We’ve been working with Andrea since 2001, who was born and raised in Vagliagli a nearby chianti village. Andrea is a local cook and runs his family-run cooking business to create the most delectable, to-die-for tuscan menus. He presents a variety of delicious Tuscan specialties, as sophisticated as they are simple. You may find handmade Pici with antique grains flour (low gluten content) and tiny bites of mouth-watering chianina meat “peposo” (enriched with a generous dose of minced black pepper). The Sunset Vineyard Dinner menu is unique to the evening and changes at each dinner, and substitutes are available for vegetarians, gluten-free and any other special requests.
A complete table setting embellished with tablecloths, cutlery and wine tasting glasses, is worthy of a beautiful Tuscan Sunset Vineyard Dinner.
Our night begins with an aperitivo while watching the sun goes down and snapping pictures. As the sky begins to darken and the blue night begins, we sit down on a long table laid under twinkling fairy-lights and our real Sunset Vineyard Dinner dream come true! Thus begins the meal with a delicious starter before proceeding to the primo and secondo.
The Sunset Vineyard Dinner prepared by the brilliant Andrea is cooked using an excellent selection of very local ingredients. All dishes are perfectly cooked respecting the local tradition and are beautifully presented in classic style – the cuisine here has a strong local influence with no chances our Tuscan dishes betray traditional roots. Then wine selection is also excellent, with a pleasing number of Chianti wines available by the glass. As the vineyard dinner lingers on, finishing up with dessert. It will be an evening to remember… and to repeat!
We have a limited number of seats available for each Sunset Vineyard Dinner and we truly recommend to book in advance and joining us. We are looking forward to seeing you at least once in a lifetime and we hope your love for wine turns into a friendship with our Tuscan Team!
And Yes…..we’re also available for private evenings. If you are in Tuscany with your family or a group of friends, and would like the idea to reserve our Tuscan Sunset Vineyard Dinner just for you, we are happy to deliver a private evening event.
