THE LOT INFO

Creation Wines, in partnership with Guy and Julia Hands, are delighted to afford the winner of this exceptional lot a twin opportunity: the delights of a life-changing sojourn at glorious Villa Saletta in Tuscany, as well as the rich rewards that come from changing the lives of children in need.

The beneficiary is the Pebbles Hemel-en-Aarde Education Project, an initiative near and dear to Creation and one that opens doors to a better future for the youth of the Hemel-en-Aarde region. As co-founder of the project, Creation has teamed up with the marvellously creative and philanthropic owners of Villa Saletta, Guy and Julia Hands.

THE ENTICING LOT INCLUDES:

  • A one-week stay at one of Tuscany’s best kept secrets: the historic and incomparable Villa Saletta, only 35 minutes from Pisa’s international airport in the heart of the ‘Golden Triangle’ of Pisa, Florence and Siena.
  • A choice of three magnificently appointed villas, sleeping between 6 and 14 people. Each villa features state-of-the-art amenities combined with elegant Tuscan design, set within its own secluded garden.
  • A winery tour and tasting with Villa Saletta’s winemaking experts – sure to appeal to the wine aficionado.
  • A gourmet welcome hamper comprising: three bottles of Villa Saletta’s finest quality wine, signed by the winemaker; olive oil and honey produced on the estate; and local artisanal products.
  • Other amenities include: outdoor pool, barbecue, patio, linens and towels, daily housekeeping Monday through Friday, Wi-Fi. 

THE PROVENANCE

Villa Saletta is a 1,760-acre private estate nestling amidst the rolling hills of Tuscany. Once the home of the Riccardi family, bankers to the Medici, the estate’s remarkable history spans centuries. When the current owners, Guy and Julia Hands, bought the estate in 2000, they became only the fourth owners in 800 years. They have since restored three of the existing farmhouses, transforming them into luxury villas.

THE VINEYARDS

Each of the estate vineyards has its own specific terroir and the winemaking approach is focused on preserving the intrinsic characteristics in the wines. Villa Saletta’s modern boutique winery produces a small selection of top quality wines.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS

The lot does not include: Flights, airport transfers, excursions and experiences (although can all be arranged with the estate’s hospitality team), heating of outdoor pool (surcharge applies if heating requested).

Timeframe for redeeming: Subject to availability and season. Must be taken within one (1) year.
