You Can’t Visit Italy without a Tuscan Degustation or Wine Tour as Food & Wine Go Hand in Hand
Montemaggio would be also very happy to organize a lunch or a picnic (lighter fare, ChicNic) for you, your family and/or your friends. Please note it can be combined with a wine tasting or tour as well as with any of our other degustations and experiences.
We suggest a lunch with typical Tuscan products and dishes that will not disappoint your expectations. While Montemaggio is not a restaurant, we cannot prepare complex dishes, but we do offer very tasty traditional Tuscan starters and some simple main courses along with desserts, depending upon your preferences.
The lunch can be paired with a tasting of our best Tuscan wines as well.

- Crostini neri made with chicken liver

PICNIC (CHICNIC) AT THE ESTATE*
More and more guests asked us about the possibility to have lighter fare lunch at the winery. They wanted something fast and easy that they could enjoy somewhere around the estate surrounded by nature.
Therefore, we had the idea to suggest a Chic PicNic. You are provided get a pretty little basket with 3 fresh focaccias filled with different kinds of cold cuts, a bottle of water, fruit, etc. You can then choose between a couple of different places around the estate for where to enjoy your chic little picnic.
- During the wine tasting right in the tasting room
- In the vineyard, sitting in the shade under an oak tree where there is a table and benches.
- In the garden, where you can relax on a blanket on the lawn.
€ 17,99 euro per basket + plus the price for a bottle or a glass of wine of your choice.
Deposit – there is a deposit for the glasses and the blanket which is returned once lunch is finished and they are returned.
*PicNic is available only with the FULLY IMMERSIVE WINE TOUR WITH BLIND TASTING or IMMERSION WINE TOUR WITH MINI TASTING COURSE or another combination of other experiences like cooking classes and art classes.
Montemaggio is open from Monday to Friday, every day, during normal working hours from 8am until 5pm. We are also open on weekends and festivities but only by prior appointments, so be sure to book yours with the booking button above.
