Mercure Argentario Hotel Filippo II inaugurates the season with an unmissable initiative: "Cantine in Vetrina"

Mercure Argentario Hotel Filippo II in Porto S. Stefano in fact offers a very interesting opportunity that not only involves all palates, from the most expert to the most curious, but also represents a way to get to know and enhance the territory through its flavours.

In fact, the Tuscan Maremma is celebrated as a timeless area that has its roots in ancient civilizations (here the Etruscans and later the Romans prospered for centuries leaving important testimonies), known for the variety of its landscape - which winds between crystalline sea, mountains covered with thick woods, lake and flat areas, green hills and natural thermal areas - and for the richness and uniqueness of its food and wine offer.

The splendid terrace of the Philip II from which it is possible to enjoy a panorama that leaves you breathless due to its charm and suggestion, thus becomes the stage for "Cantine in Vetrina" : eight food and wine appointments with tasting of wines offered thanks to the collaboration with wineries selected among those most representative of the territory and which from time to time will make their peculiarities known.

Expert Sommeliers will illustrate the various phases of wine production and will lead guests along a path during which taste and smell will be able to perceive the thousand nuances of a memorable sensory experience.

It starts on 8 April with the Enoforia agricultural company (Montiano - GR), which has rediscovered Pugnitello, a native Grosseto vine at risk of extinction, followed on 15 April by the Provveditore company (Scansiano - GR) and its wines from from vineyards still cultivated in the traditional way and with respect for the territory, while Fabiani - a small family-run business in the heart of the Maremma - on April 22nd will present natural wines obtained from ancient Tuscan vineyards with an average age of over thirty years.

On 29 April it's the turn of Poggio Stenti of the Pieri family whose love for the land has led to the management of vineyards (mainly of Sangiovese and Vermentino grapes, located on the hills in the heart of the production area of Montecucco DOCG and Maremma Toscana DOC) and olive groves in a totally organic way while on 6 May we will meet the Poggio La Luna Organic Farm (between Scansano and Saturnia in a still somewhat wild territory) where the vines are grown using the organic method integrated by some biodynamic practices such as, for example, taking into account the lunar phases for working the land and bottling the wines.

May 13th is the turn of La Chimera d'Albegna of the Becherini family who have created a modern winery by searching and rediscovering the secrets of winemaking with patience and daily dedication, honoring the most authentic traditions. On May 20th here is Nenni Toscana a story of excellence that dates back to 1272 when the Abbey of San Galgano founded a village in Frosini dedicated to the production of Sangiovese wine, along the Via Francigena, which today the Nenni family continues with the support of a team international winemakers.

The last appointment is on May 27 with the Agostinetto family who have been producing wines for four generations and who, after a trip to Maremma, decided to give life to a winery on the hills of Montiano with vineyards of Sangiovese, Ciliegiolo and Vermentino.

In combination with the proposed wines, many typical local ingredients to relive the flavors and aromas of the best tradition.

All you have to do is book so you don't miss out on a truly original journey in the exclusive setting of one of the symbols of the Argentario.
