The Cecchi Challenge 2022

Test yourself and win a trip to visit Cecchi wine estates in Tuscany

ZOOM session: Friday 22 July 6pm CET (5pm BST), by invitation only

Cecchi is a family wine business, with three estates in Tuscany (Villa Cerna and Villa Rosa located in Castellina in Chianti, and Val delle Rose in Maremma), and one in Umbria, Tenuta Alzatura in Montefalco.

Established in 1892, after 130 years, their wines are benchmarks for the famous Chianti Classico region between Florence and Siena, and also from the exciting vineyard region of Maremma in the south of Tuscany. Cecchi wines are enjoyed around the world.

What is the Cecchi Challenge?

The Cecchi Challenge is a fun, educational online session where participants will be guided through an overview of Tuscany and its wines, with special focus on Chianti Classico and Maremma. They will then be asked a series of questions, some quite easy, some a bit more demanding, and including a blind wine tasting of four wines which will be sent to each participant in advance. Questions will be answered via an online app.
