Arlene Stein of Terroir Symposium and Charlotte Horton of Castello di Potentino will host a week-long  culinary retreat uniting top chefs and food experts to look at rural logic in modern food practices.

We are delighted to welcome Terroir Hospitality’s Arlene Stein to Castello di Potentino. In 2014, Charlotte was asked to speak about Potentino at the Terroir Symposiumin Toronto and we have been hatching this plan ever since. 

Terroir has now expanded beyond Canada and has held events in Warsaw, Budapest and Berlin with more planned across the globe. 

For biographies of the participants and more information please go to the Terroir Talk Tuscany website.

Tucked away in a secret valley in one of the last undiscovered corners of Tuscany, Castello di Potentino is an ancient castle built on a historical Etruscan site. The castle functions as an altruistic, forward-looking venture constructed around a working farm. It’s a very special place, where visitors can experience an intimate connection between humankind and the environment that was initiated over 3,000 years ago. 

The medieval building is surrounded by unspoilt countryside as well as the vines and ancient olive trees used for all the estate’s small production of high quality wine, grappa and oil. Bought and restored in 2000 by the Greene family, the castle has become a dynamic cultural centre. 

All our Terroir Tuscany guests will stay in beautiful rustic lodgings located in and around Castello di Potentino's stunning magic valley. All accommodations are easy to reach, some by foot, and we do ask guests with mobility issues to let us know well in advance, so that we can make sure they are properly accommodated for. These country lodgings cater to both single and double occupancy requests. Couples will be housed together, whilst single guests can chose to share same-sex rooms or have their own private accommodation. If there is someone you would like to share with who is also booking, please let us know. We can't wait to host you!
