Some people believe that Tuscany is heaven—and many people believe it’s far better than that. The winning bidder on this lot will get to experience more than authentic Chianti Classico and fabulous Brunello di Montalcino. They will awake each morning surrounded by the beauty of the Tuscan countryside, sample the best in rustic local cuisine and have a nerve-soothing spa treatment in the midst of nature. These are the moments where dreams are made.

Your Tuscan adventure begins with chauffeured transportation from Florence to the hamlet of Borgo Scopeto in the province of Siena. For five centuries, the village was the residence of the Sozzini dynasty, who built the castle that currently houses the Relais Borgo Scopeto. Your party will relax in Executive Suites with stunning views of the Chianti hills and the city of Siena.

The restored Relais Borgo Scopeto retains its 14th-century charm while it transports guests back to the Middle Ages in complete comfort. Your luxurious retreat contains every possible amenity: two outdoor pools and a heated indoor pool, a fully equipped gym and a wellness center with hydromassage, sauna, hamman, Turkish bath and sensory showers, along with a complete range of treatments. Each member of your party will be treated to a massage as well as a Bacchus Bath, featuring grape must extracts for firm and regenerated skin.

You’ll enjoy the culinary range of the Relais, from the relaxed lunchtime atmosphere of the Borgo Bistrot to the more formal La Tinaia Restaurant, located in the ancient cellars of the estate. At La Tinaia, you’ll indulge in local cheeses and cured meats, risotto and homemade pasta and the wild game of the Tuscan countryside. After your cooking class with chef Pietro Fortunati, you’ll be able to take the recipes with you and prepare his dishes at home.

Your party will enjoy a private tour and tasting at the winery of Borgo Scopeto, one of the foremost producers of Chianti Classico. Although wine was made here for centuries by the Sozzini family, the label was not commercially available until 1990. The location of the Borgo Scopeto vineyards is perfect for the production of Sangiovese, and the winemaking itself combines tradition with innovation. You’ll sample Borgonero, their Super Tuscan blend, their grappa and their Vin Santo dessert wine, as well as their Chianti Classico Riserva “Vigna Misciano” at the top of the range.

Even though you won’t want to leave Borgo Scopeto, you’ll be heading for an experience just as unique and rarified: the Brunello estate of Altesino Winery, set in the northeastern hills of Montalcino. You’ll spend two nights in Suites at the winery as you explore this benchmark estate, owned by the Gnudi Angelini family since 2002.

Altesino has been one of the innovators in the region as modern Brunello evolved over the past five decades. They introduced the single-vineyard Cru concept in 1975 with the creation of Brunello di Montalcino Montosoli, and in 1979 they were the first estate in the area to use barriques for aging. Throughout the growing and winemaking processes, they demonstrate a meticulous commitment to quality which is apparent in the finished wine.

As you taste through the wines of Altesino, you’ll understand why Elisabetta Gnudi Angelini is referred to as “the Queen of Brunello.”

This exceptional lot provides an opportunity to sample the best of Tuscan food and wine, while savoring the relaxed pace of the Italian country lifestyle.

Raise your paddle and bid high for your week under the Tuscan sun!
