Florence, Italy – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine
In celebration of the harvest season, award-winning Italian villa Il Salviatino has collaborated with world-renowned Allegrini Wine Estates to launch “The Grape Escape.”
Available immediately, The Grape Escape provides guests with an exclusive itinerary of wine tasting, gourmet dining, and spa time, ensuring the ultimate escape for wine lovers and connoisseurs alike.
During their stay at Il Salviatino, guests will be accommodated in one of the villa’s majestic Green House Suites. These unique suites feature a large bedroom and bathroom with arched brick ceilings and contemporary artwork, and a separate ‘al fresco’ living area encased in a glass dome which offers direct access to the villa’s park and gardens.
Embarking on their wine-inspired tour of Tuscany, guests will be chauffeur-driven to the Poggio al Tesoro estate in Bolgheri to enjoy a variety of fine-crafted and well-aged wines, as well as an exquisite dinner of traditional Tuscan fare. After a night spent in the estate’s rustic accommodation, the luxurious wine tour continues with a cellar visit, wine tasting and a light lunch at the San Polo estate in Montalcino, known for its eco-friendly philosophy and innovative approach to wine making.
After touring Tuscany’s lush and varied vineyards, guests will be treated to a spa treatment of their choice at Spa Il Salviatino, which will be carried out by skilled therapists using the acclaimed Dr. Vranjes products. For the ultimate grape-inspired treatment the Antioxidant Wine Gel Peel includes a unique body scrub using red wine must gel to leave guests suitably relaxed and invigorated.
Set within the sloping hills of Fiesole, yet only moments from the city of Florence, Il Salviatino, part of the Salviatino Collection, is the Tuscan retreat of choice, offering a unique setting for lovers of Tuscany. The villa, which features 45 rooms and suites, captures an elegant 21st century take on its aristocratic past where frescos, rich handcrafted leather and works of art sit alongside the most sophisticated technologies.
