At Villa Montecastello, we’ll open the doors to local artisans and farmers lives, tour the vineyards of Tuscany and explore ancient local towns and hamlets.  This week long journey will immerse you in the joys of Italian culture, introduce you to new techniques and ingredients in the kitchen, and inspire your yoga practice for years to come.
