We will let ourselves be guided by nature through the woods and vineyards, searching for the secrets of wine and its bond with the land: we will discover the magic and science which give wine its aroma, bouquet and structure. We will try to understand which processes and factors determine the richness of wine. 

We will taste and capture small details which our senses will learn to perceive. Because drinking wine is an act of pleasure, completeness and fascination.

In the name of gastrosophy, we will immerse ourselves in a picnic dinner among vineyards and woodland.

We will be guided by nature through the vineyards in search of the secrets of the treasures of this land, of the flovours of yesteryear; we will awaken our senses and our creativity by relying on touch, sense of smell and imagination; we will savour little-known delicacies, combining smells, flavours and textures in search of the heart of things and their history and essence. We will play at preparing synaesthetic “gifts” full of “meaning” for ourselves and those we love, all in a “world of wonderment”.

THE WEB OF THE WORLD

Immersion in nature and forest bathing

ICONE_HIKING.png
ICONE_eno.png

Every day, nature weaves thousands of threads into a web of wonder. We are losing awareness of it but we will be able to see these threads again: just sit in a forest’s embrace, listen to its voice, observe it and the threads will materialise.

But to be able to see them, you have to irradiate the world with your attention, with your emotions, with  your curiosity.  In a word, you must fill it with your imagination.

Only then does the world send back our rays, colouring them with its own essence.

We will undertake a short journey through the woods of the Marchesi Ginori estates to discover the invisible threads of nature, a journey in which we will try to weave our feelings, our emotions, a journey towards ourselves, unleashing our creative power and the strength that our bond with nature gives us.
