A cozy summer evening at La Pieve

Buffet La PieveLast Saturday, together with Clara Gotti of “La Pieve di Montalcino” and Telsche Peters, founder of “ToscaBio”, we organized the Happy Hour in the charming flair of La Pieve.

Intense flavors of the garden and the magic atmosphere of the courtyard of La Pieve warmly welcomed our guests. Dinner La PieveIn the garden they enjoyed a good glass of wine and typical fresh summer dishes of seasonal Tuscan products. All had been accompanied by a bit of music, which at the end of the evening invited the guests to dance.

Inside the wine shop, the guests found a large selection of wines from the surroundings of Montalcino, as well as the wines produced by La Pieve: Prosecco del Valdobbiadene, Vermentino, Rosé and their Red wine.ToscaBio Olive Oil and book

Moreover, thanks to presence of Telsche Peters, authoress of the book “Bio-Paradies Toskana – Zu Gast bei 100 Bio-Produzenten(ed. 2011, in German language) and founder of ToscaBio, the guests had the possibility to taste several organic fine food products. As Telsche confirmed, during the tastings especially the „Beach Honey“, the products of „Il Palagio“ (the estate of the singer Sting) and the new chocolate cream „Scrupoli 33“ were the favorite products of the people. Those specialties were paired to the wines of the organic winery “Il Conventino” from Montepulciano: Rosé, Nobile di Montepulciano and Nobile di Montepulciano Riserva.

It was a very pleasant evening and it shows that sometimes even simple details and a bit‘ of typical Tuscan elements are already enough to organize a pleasant event and to enjoy a beautiful cozy summer night.
