Enclosed in the Tuscan countryside, in a garden surrounded by vineyards overlooking the old family farmhouse of Tenuta Valdipiatta the practice of the ancient discipline of yoga is combined with a light wine tasting.
The experience starts with a session of yoga creating a connection to the surrounding nature and reawakening our senses. Thereafter, we walk along a cypressed-lined road connecting the farmhouse and the cellar. Meanwhile you will learn about the hostory of Tenuta Valdipiatta. Within the tasting room you will get a taste of their wines followed by barrel cellar and wine production tour.
The idea to create a synergy between the worlds of Yoga and wine was born by the friendship of Anna Maria Zullo and Miriam Caporali (owner of Tenuta Valdipiatta). It is for all of those who wish to have a unique experience in total harmony of body, mind and nature.

CELLAR & WINERY TOUR
The Trekking and Yoga experience is a day trip that takes place within the Pietraporciana Nature Reserve within southern Tuscany.

VISIT TO LA FOCE
Taking a walk in Val d’Orcia, the Southern heart of Tuscany, seems the most natural thing to do. But Tuscany forests offer much more than just a walk. Your mind lightens and your thoughts drift away like clouds above your head.
We go to this magical and peaceful forest to recharge our body and soul and embrace nature’s vital energy by hugging the ancient trees, like the fantastic tree of the spectacular Faggeta of the Pietraporciana Natural Reserve.
For the final meditation, this peaceful walk will lead us to a beautiful secret meadow on the top of the Natural Reserve. The view from Mount Amiata will be the perfect ally for the awareness and contemplation.
The walk will be followed by a degustation of home made local products, such as olive oil and wine, in our old farm house. You will enjoy the beautiful surroundings of this peaceful place, the appetizers, and if you wish you may continue the experience with a delicious home-made lunch.
