Food & Wine

Be Taken by the Taste of Tuscany

Every bite, every ingredient, every sip is a love letter to Italy. Our Culinary Director, Giancarla Bodoni, leads a team that will take you into a state of sensorial appreciation for all that is good in food and wine at the heart of Tuscany.

Be taken by Giancarla and her team’s immaculate focus on seasonality, which invites our guests to eat regional specialties in harmony with that season’s natural bounty.

Here, every meal is an invitation to be transported to a place where memories, conversations, and quiet glances of deep appreciation flow abundantly.

Chef in Residence: An immersive culinary program

We are thrilled to welcome Michelin-starred chefs Crenn and Silverton to Monteverdi this November to collaborate as part of our new Chef in Residence program.

In this inaugural chapter of the program, Chefs Crenn and Silverton have collaborated with Monteverdi Culinary Director Chef Giancarla Bodoni to curate a five-night itinerary filled with moments to engage with Chefs Crenn and Silverton at private dining experiences, while also exploring Tuscany through guided tours and excursions, like white truffle hunting, a visit to Mulino Val D’Orcia, a family-owned flour and grain mill, and chance to learn the art of cheesemaking at Fattoria Piu, a family-owned sheep’s milk farm. Concerts, wine tastings, chef-led cooking demonstrations are scheduled throughout the program, with time for guests to unwind, relax, and enjoy the stunning views from the hilltop property.


Intentionally sourced and carefully plated, our fine-dining concept celebrates each season with products cultivated by local producers, our friends, whose farms dot the Tuscan landscape. Taste the passion and integrity of pure Tuscan produce complimented by a selection of current and rare wines in an elegant atmosphere.
