Winter at Il Borro

Christmas is coming, and there is no better place than Il Borro to enjoy the festivities. Here we can pamper ourselves with the enveloping warmth of a magical experience on the estate, surrounded by nature and its many colors. So let’s treat ourselves to a regenerating, pleasurable break at Il Borro.

An exclusive package for Christmastime offers a complimentary night when we stay at Il Borro for three nights, as well as a tour of the Vino & Arte Gallery followed by tasting of their exquisite wines. In addition, you we will receive a bottle of wine from the estate to drink a toast to the holidays.

In this medieval town turned boutique hotel, we can enjoy the pleasures of excellent gastronomy at Osteria del Borro, with a menu of seasonal Kavours paired with great wines and the magical warmth of a typical Italian welcome.

The wines at Il Borro are a treat that we cannot miss out on. Every year, Seminario Veronelli, the wine and food culture association publishes its prestigious "Guida Oro I vini di Veronelli", which aims to offer its readers a faithful portrayal of Italy’s best wines. This year the Guide has honoured Il Borro 2013 with the title Super Three Stars 2017.

This award is assigned only to wines that have obtained a score of 94 or more points out of 100. The Guide considers consistent quality to be a value, and it is an accolade given only to wines that were already at the top in the previous year.

Il Borro 2013 is beauty, elegance and a representation of the estate. For the Il Borro company, this award is a recognition of their constant pursuit of perfection in the selection of grapes that are able to represent the best of their terroir.

Something else that we must always try when at Il Borro is its Spa.

A true beauty experience, the OlivOli programme takes inspiration from ancient Tuscan remedies, based on the use of every part of the olive.

The combination of ground olive pits and Kesh is a real beauty ritual accompanied by aromas and sensations of softness and regeneration. The particular softness and soothing qualities of the olive makes this gently exfoliating and smoothing treatment suitable even for the most sensitive skins. It is also recommended before sun tanning to help give your skin an even, long-lasting colour.

The sensory action and the combination of essential oils and active ingredients make every massage a true beauty and preventive treatment. Sensory massages with Il Borro olive oil are excellent preventative treatments for skin conditions and provide a natural anti-ageing action.
