Montalcino in Tuscany. Brunello wine meets art at Villa Le Prata

Monday, 22 November 2021 15:32

Villa Le Prata - del Vescovo is an aristocratic residence in the centre of a centuries-old park that Anna Vittoria and Bernardo Losappio have transformed into a property where the excellence of wine is combined with the magic of a special land.

Vineyards and a  swimming pool  

Built in 1862, the property is now a charming winery where each room is unique. You can walk through the park surrounded by vineyards, dive into the swimming pool with a Jacuzzi and relax at sunset with a glass of Brunello di Villa le Prata wine.

A wine lovers delight

Excellent Brunello and Rosso di Montalcino wines have been produced here since the 1980s on the three hectares of vineyards that surround the villa where picnics or dinners can also be organized. Tours of the Val d'Orcia on an old Vespa and sunset e-bike tours are also available as well as a personal trainer for Pilates, bodyflying and yoga classes. And for wine lovers there are guided wine tastings and tasting courses.

Wine and art. A perfect match

Villa Le Prata's newest project focuses on combining art and wine in an immersive experience. A unique, dynamic art gallery has been created in all areas of the villa. “Combining a passion for art with that for wine making was a natural step for us - says Bernardo Losappio - transforming the 18th-century summer residence of Bishop of Montalcino into something more than a charming hotel.

Contemporary artists, fine dining and wines

Wine, Art and Beauty, curated by artistic director Michele Crocitto together with Edoardo Losappio, will host contemporary artists. The first will be Wine & Glass, the new collection by Modenese sculptor Carlo Baldessarri designed especially for Villa Le Prata, which will be on display in the vineyard and in the park of the property until 31 December. There will be areas where guests can meditate while tasting a Brunello and admiring the works on display, and a QR code for further information. “The special thing about this project - continues Edoardo Losappio - is that every guest, every art lover, will have the opportunity to dine with the artists, to interact with them and to participate in the creative workshops we will be organizing."
