An interview to the discovery of the distinctive features of a top wedding destinations in Italy, Tuscany. To illustrate them Silvia Regi Baracchi, the new Wine&Wedding 2017 testimonial, owner and Chef of the tuscan wine resort Il Falconiere.
Which are the three features of a wedding in perfect Tuscan style?
The location is doubtless the most important characteristic, in it you should feel the typical Tuscan mood and allure, which is the main fascinating aspect for couples from overseas willing to crown their dream in our beautiful land. Following our mere and refined table set, in a perfect Tuscan country chic style; the decorations and the unique view in our terrace express the ideal atmosphere for romantic moments. Finally our cheerful kitchen, in which the ingredients research and the plating care make each dish a story to tell, all combined to the wine produced by our company. These are the elements that distinguish our events and make them unique.
The peculiarities of the wedding menu at Il Falconiere?
I usually suggest menus representing our area, that are able to amaze the newlyweds coming from all over the world. The choice of the freshest seasonal ingredients, called True km rather than 0 km, is our luck and peculiarity: in fact, the area, the land of Cortona with its generous countryside, allows us to easily find all the best ingredients to create an assorted menu, with the bold flavors of Tuscany. Quality, presentation and flavors are the three most important elements to create a menu that will remain etched in the memory of the newlyweds and their guests forever.
Which is the most particular request by foreign couple you have been able to handle?
Every wedding reveals a dream … there are so many requests and particularities we have the pleasure to satisfy. Sometimes we had to completely change the setting of the property: for example we have organized a wedding of a couple from “Bollywood”, for four days, and each has been a challenge.
What do you think of the experience with Wine&Wedding Italy and what do you wish for the future?
The name itself and the project are definitely winning, it keeps the willing to share and participate in the distinctiveness of our territory; a generous and rich land, where even wine is an essential element of our traditions. Wine&Wedding, with its professionalism and creativity in offering exclusive venues, is a perfect partner for people like us, having the fortune to propose a fine wine resort in the heart of Tuscany. These elements together are successful and ideal to plan a special wedding and leave an unforgettable memory to our spouses.
