Special Events in May 2015

May in Tuscany is the perfect occasion to start enjoying the beautiful outdoors. Why not try an art lesson in our gardens with our resident artist or sample some of our select wines with our sommelier? We also can arrange a special garden tour or a horse riding adventure so you can expereince Tuscany in full bloom.


Meet our May resident artist, Kelly Boutcher

Each month Borgo invites a resident artist to come stay and work on its grounds. Guests may stop by their workshop for a chat or sign up for customized art lessons. Borgo provides the idyllic setting for inspiring the “inner artist” in everyone! All art supplies are included in the fee.

Kelly has been lifecasting for over twenty years and taught himself how to take body casts in a variety of mediums including plaster bandage, alginate and silicon rubber. He has undertaken numerous demanding commissions and cast dozens of adult and child hands. 

His passion for casting the human form is his motivation for passing on the knowledge and experience he has acquired to people just like you!

From concrete to plaster to alginate – you can make casts in most materials – helping to bring out the artist and life caster in you!


Wine Tasting with our own Sommelier

Why not join our in-house sommeier for a private wine tasting where you can sample a selection of the very finest wines from the regions and beyond.
