The changing seasons bring special events to the towns around Castello del Nero, the thrilling Palio, truffle hunting and the joyful Chianti grape harvest celebrations. 

Mid to late September is the vendemmia, when guests are welcome to watch the castello’s grape harvest. Our location puts you in the centre of the wine growing region, with many Chianti wineries to visit nearby, to observe picking and fermentation. Local Chianti villages celebrate with wine festivals, the most famous are Greve and Panzano, where you can enjoy street music, food and Chianti Classico tastings.

The most thrilling bareback horse race in the world, Palio di Siena, takes place twice a year, 2nd July and 16th August. Ten horses with liveried riders compete around Piazza del Campo covered with turf. With advance notice our concierge might secure guests much sought after balcony seats.

In the summer months there are opera performances in gardens and squares around Florence. And the year ends with delightful Christmas markets in Florence and Siena where you find Italian crafts, delicious food and wine.

Autumn is Truffle hunting season, this is a truly authentic Tuscan experience. Man and dog work as an inseparable team in search of the edible gold. It is a great reward to find a truffle buried beneath leaves and earth, then enjoy a gastronomic feast at the hunter’s local restaurant.
