As you will be in an incredible setting, been Tuscany one of the most beautiful regions in the all of Europe, Three Treasures Yoga tries to offer a good balance of workout, down-time and cultural excursions. Some people are perfectly at ease staying at the hotel to enjoy the peace and luxury of the countryside, pool, food and relax. Three Treasures Yoga will also organize for you two hands on cooking classes with the chef Fabio Loda, and an in-house wine tasting of the prize winner Montecucco wine produced by the farm. In the program youll also find a visit to the hot spa of Petriolo just a few kilometers away.

The farm lays on the top of a natural amphitheater facing south-west, 350 meters above sea level. The farm owns 52 hectares, of which 25 hectares are dedicated to vineyards, 2 hectares host olive trees, while a wood of live oaks and cork oaks occupies the remaining 25 hectares. Since Medieval times, on the roads that lead from Maremma towards the inland, the Imposti represented a place where wayfarer and dealers could take a break and get refreshments and could change the cattle or get a hot meal and a glass of wine. At the beginning of 2000, one of these old homesteads, that in the centuries had become a bare pasture, stole the heart of two Lombard friends, thanks to its hillocks facing south and the unspoiled nature of the surroundings.

In the belief that the land and climate of the high Maremma represented an important added valued, they began a 5 years conversion of the old pastures and arable lands into neat vineyards, along with the project to entrap in a bottle all the character of this strong and generous land; certainly warm, sometimes rough, it gives itself slowly to those who have the patience to stop, listen and taste. Place your lips on the glass to taste, with every sip, a chapter of the fascinating history and folklore of Tuscany. Naturally, each label on the bottles recalls local myths, recognized as a patrimony of an oral tradition passed down from generation to generation.
