Ruffino, the renowned Tuscan wine company, welcomes the summer with a picnic at the flagship winery Poggio Casciano on Saturday, June 8.
Only 20 minutes from Florence by car, from 4 to 10pm, families and friends can pick up a picnic hamper filled with local produce and delicious dishes prepared by Locanda Ruffino, the winery’s restaurant that is set to open this summer.
Laze on the lawns sipping Ruffino’s wines as local DJ Calzino spins the tunes at sunset.
Take a walk around the fourteenth-century villa, fermentation rooms and striking barrique tunnel, and enjoy a sneak preview of Relais Ruffino, the just opened country house accommodation. Stock up your cellar with discounted wines specially for the occasion.
The Florentine will be in attendance with its June issue.
Tenuta Poggio Casciano
