Also this year on our sweet hills we are about to lay the magic of Christmas with all its lights, its promises, its perfumes, the colors and the hope that is the most important thing that this wonderful holiday brings with it.
If you find yourself spending a few days in our farm, you can collect some unforgettable moments. The Chianti region, like many others, celebrates the advent of Christmas by organizing many events that, combined with the omnipresent peasant origins of our people, makes them exciting and difficult to forget once they return home.
The two wonderful cities of Florence and Siena, already full of immeasurable beauty, bring out their most beautiful clothes in the days of Advent, with their wonderful craft and food markets, with entertainment for adults and children and the opportunity to be able to participate in some charity event, such as the purchase for example of a CD of traditional Christmas music whose proceeds from sales will be donated to help the Tuscany Foundation for the fight against cancer (ATT), the luminous decorations of the streets, the ice rink to skate.
Even in our hills the municipalities of Chianti organize markets, concerts, entertainment for children with Santa Claus (in person!) and many other wonderful events that will combine the magic of Christmas, fun for adults and children, music, lights, smiles, the possibility to buy typical local handicraft products and also to taste the seasonal wonders of our hills, the typical sweets of native as panforte, a “compact” dessert with candied fruit and nuts, and ricciarelli, or biscuits made with almond paste and sugar; typical of the Tuscan countryside is the cavalluccio, a rather hard biscuit with an accentuated anise flavor, mixed with finely chopped walnuts and candied fruit and, of course, a practically endless series of unique wines in the world.
Going back to the scheduled events, as we have said, there is really something for everyone. In Barberino, for example, on December 18th, the entire historic center of the town will become … Lapland for a day! The Christmas land of Santa Claus, streets and snow-covered squares, decorated for the occasion will appear as the birthplace of Santa Claus with a wooden house where to deliver the letters, enriched with music, songs and Christmas markets.
Come to Chianti to really experience extraordinary emotions and choose Corte Di Valle as your home, every day we will do everything we can to help you and make you discover this land that we all love so much.
