Savor the wines and food of Tuscany at a 3.5-hour tasting tour from Florence, held in an authentic 17th-century villa just steps from the city center.
Sheltered from the noise of the city, the tranquil villa is surrounded by olive groves and vineyards, while rabbits and pheasants wander the grounds. After a 10-minute transfer, you’ll explore the complex prcess of olive oil and wine production with the wine maker.
Stroll the picturesque grounds, learning about the estate’s unique white and red wines, including wines made from Merlot, Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, and Pinot Bianco grapes. Visit the underground cellar, and sample 4 different wines, including 1 white wine, 2 red wines, and a special dessert wine, all of limited production and only found at the villa.
End with a hearty 4-course meal of typical Tuscan dishes, such as crostini, prosciutto, Parmigiano and Pienza pecorino cheese, regional style pasta, and a meat course. Vegetarian options are also available. Take in the panoramic views from the garden setting, before your transfer back to Florence.
