Complete with the splendid “Chianti Botanical Park” brimming with blooming Chianti roses, the Casa Emma estate is located in the heart of Chianti Classico territory, and is currently owned by the Bucalossi family. Predominantly growing the area’s famed Sangiovese grape with organic methods, the family are dedicated to maintaining a natural approach to wine production. Some of their vineyards – which are charmingly arranged in the shape of a Roman amphitheater around a central point - even employ the innovative “geese” approach, where geese are employed instead of machinery to implement weed control. So, if you fancy seeing these wine geese in action, head over for a tour of Casa Emma, where, if you are unfamiliar with winemaking, we’re sure you’ll be amazed by the complexity of the process. After all that learning you’ll definitely have worked up an appetite, so you should head over to the winery’s restaurant for a tasty Tuscan lunch, with recipes ranging from pici all’aglione to pollo alla cacciatora con le olive. And of course, what would a slap-up Italian lunch be if it wasn’t accompanied with a glass of one of Casa Emma’s exquisite wines? That being said, if you’re unable to drink due to being the designated driver, there is still a tantalizing tipple for you to taste, as Casa Emma innovatively produces Sagohe, a non-alcoholic red wine which aims to bring all the delightful tastes of the Sangiovese grape to people who are unable to consume alcohol.
