Treno del vino e Stazione del vino - Wine Station
The project of Winestation comes from the intuition of creating an aggregation pole around the wine world taking place in the ancient railway station Torrenieri/Montalcino. Montalcinos charm and the increasing number of wine tourists, encouraged the promoting group towards an integrate project holding the essence of the whole wine world. Both the presence of the ancient Montalcino railway station, disused for the last 20 years, and the strategic position on the Sr2 Cassia road, together with the availability of the spaces, make Torrenieri the ideal location to host a Disneyland of wine. Inside of this railway scenery there is a welcome and a knowledge centre about the wine culture which leads the keen on wine or just curious tourists through the wine world in an easy but also serious way. The project starts from the wish to create a different place, scientific, cultural, historical but amusing and enjoyable. Everything goes around the personality of Roberto Cipresso defined by Robert Parker, a Guru of the oenological field in the world, the Poet of the Terroir. Mr. Cipresso leads his experimental cellar, Winecircus, over the railway track of the Winestation.
