With olive trees on the property and the nearby Borgo Scopeto winery with vineyards containing Sangiovese grapes, you are going to want to bring home some of their Chianti Classico and Extra Virgin olive oil. Their Dop Oil, made from Moraiolo, Leccino and Frantoio olives have a savory and spicy flavor complete with aromatic notes of dried fruit. The oil is dietetic and easy to digest with low acidity – forget about farm to table, it’s all about vineyard to table!
Find serenity at the property’s Wellness Centre, the former stable area, where you can forget about life’s distractions while you detoxify surrounded by the vapors of the hamman and the heat of the sauna. Enjoy herbal teas, infusions and even an herb garden in their relaxation area set amidst the charming Tuscan countryside. The Borgo also boasts their own cosmetics products which are made with the grapes and olive trees around the property, so you can keep your Mediterranean glow all year long. The Oil and Sage line nourishes skin naturally with the unique properties of their olive oil, while the Grape and Cypress line moisturizes and oxygenates, so you can continue to soak up the sun.
