The “Farm to plate” concept in Tenuta Torciano Winery. The restaurants inside the Estate and Bottega Torciano in San Gimignano are the culinary and wine realms, respectively, of eight chefs, who design their menus with the collaboration of farmers and gardeners to bring the fruits of organic cultivation directly to the table.
The freshly picked ingredients in our garden, the fresh and aged cheeses, honey, figs, up to the vines of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Morellino, Trebbiano Toscano, Chardonnay and Vernaccia di San Gimignano delight the palate also in the original “Grand Chefs” mobile kitchen and in the “Cantine 2 Supertuscan” kitchen of the winery used in the Torciano Cooking School.
Truly involving are the artisan “Oilpressing” at the oil mill, Wine Tastings in the winery, Truffle Hunting lessons in the truffle farm of the estate and those of Art & Wine within our vineyards that see the organization of events and internationally renowned celebrations. Everything is designed to live in relaxation and actively immerse yourself in the vineyard life as a long weekend of Tuscan harvest.
And precisely in terms of well-being, here with the 2019 harvest, we offer products for beauty and therapeutic treatments drawing on the polyphenolic molecules of our grapes, precious antioxidants that play a fundamental role in regulating the cellular and inflammatory aging processes due to free radicals. Our face and body creams, produced from polyphenols extracted from the skins of Sangiovese grapes, make the skin more toned, firm and compact. It will be like coming back 10 years young.
Our cellar, as well as being sensitive to beauty and health, is particularly attentive to the cultivation of products, wines and organic oils, and recycling with the recovery of the berries used to produce our fine wines, making creams and body products to make beauty an indissoluble combination with pleasure.
Tenuta Torciano is not a simple winery but it is a life philosophy of a family that has welcomed its guests for 13 generations, involving them in all the senses.
