Italy has over 20 wine regions, each producing delicious and famous wines. It is, however, Tuscany that can boast some of the most well-recognised and highly-esteemed wines in the world.
Tuscany is renowned for its picture-perfect scenery from the Apuan Alps and the rolling hills of Chianti to the beautiful Tyrrhenian Sea, and the scenery is dotted with castles, churches and wine cellars - an extraordinary blend of natural beauty and a vast cultural heritage that ranges from the Etruscan times to the present.
But when you’re visiting Tuscany and have so much to see, what you really need is a hotel to rest after those long days of wine and food tasting; a place that feels like home the moment you arrive.
Agriturismo Poggio al Tufo is one of our favourite Tuscan hotels. Located in the Maremma countryside in the vineyards of the Tommasi Family Estates, Poggio al Tufo offers eight different rooms each uniquely furnished and finely decorated. The attention to detail, a common feature in the Tommasi Estate, mixes well with the traditional and warm design and atmosphere that is found within the hotel.
Foodies will relish the fresh, home cooking served at Poggio al Tufo. Priding themselves on using only locally-sourced ingredients, their menus change seasonally to incorporate the delicious, homegrown produce. You’ll find a selection of the tastiest, local dishes on offer, which can be paired with their award-winning Tommasi wines.
The hotel is perfect for wine lovers looking to enjoy a restful and relaxing holiday. Whether it’s soaking up the sun as you sit by the glistening outdoor pool, or indulging in pampering treatments at the nearby Saturnia Thermal Spa, a visit to Poggio al Tufo is highly recommended by the Winerist team.
