Discover together because the Tenuta Torciano animals are never lacking!
In this article we would like to reflect on the close and precious relationship that exists between animals and the wine and why, Tenuta Torciano, can’t miss these loving friends.
1. Animals, a great resource for the care and protection of vineyards
Now all over the wine world you are accustomed to accommodate different animals inside the vineyards: this does not happen simply because they are a pleasant company, but especially for the fact that proved to be, with the course of the years of good resources for the protection and care of the vineyards: it is the case of the sheep and pigs, that feeding of weeds ensure growth and luxuriant undisturbed trestles;
Also the dwarf sheep together with the pigs are excellent to uproot the weeds, but above all, thanks to their low stature, fail to reach the grapes and therefore to food; dogs are needed to safeguard the sheep while the chickens and ducks, as for example our ducks mandarine or our chickens Wyandotte, are efficient in the elimination of insects and parasites that could damage the screws.
2. Pets: friends of wine tasting in cellar
In many wine cellars you will have the opportunity to taste a good wine in the company of our friends pelosetti, tireless entertainers and sources of tenderness: for example in California the adorable opossum Pockets gladdens the tastings becoming caress docilely or longevity armadillo Roswell.
I’m not speaking only of armadillos or opossum, but also of more common hedgehogs and porcupines. The animals of the Tenuta Torciano are companions charming and elegant: Do not miss the opportunity to savor a Nobile di Montepulciano and the view of the beautiful Imperial pheasant or of the very chic and vain peacock…Or, stay enchanted to observe how the colors of a good glass of our Vernaccia Poggioaicieli weds penalty with the rainbow of feathers of our ducks mandarine!
3. A wine for pets?
From now on, also our friends can make us company during our tastings: is an increasingly growing the initiative to produce specific drinks for pets that with characteristics that remember those of wine, not essendolo at all.
It will be so that our faithful dachshund Dante caould wine taste a beverage beneficial and rich in antioxidants while we are savoring a glass of good Chianti Classico Riserva Godenzio or why not a lots of flavor Chianti Crete Rosse…
Because you know, the wine is best enjoyed in the company!
