Enjoy a guided wine tasting of 4 limited-edition Tuscan wines and a typical Tuscan four-course dinner at a 17th century villa surrounded by vineyards and located 10 minutes away from Florence city center.
The evening begins with a 10-minute transfer from Florence’s city center to the enchanting villa. Upon your arrival you’ll personally meet the villa’s wine-maker and as you’ll enjoy a stroll of the picturesque grounds, you’ll learn how the villa produces several unique white and red wines from a selection of Merlot, Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Pinot Bianco grapes. You’ll visit the underground wine cellar and have a look at the machines used today, for a fascinating overview of the production.
Then you’ll have the opportunity to try four of them in a guided tasting: one white, two reds and a special dessert wine. These wines are all of limited production and can only be found at this Villa.
Your experience will come to a conclusion in the villa’s garden with a hearty, Tuscan four-course meal. Dine on typical dishes such as crostini, prosciutto, Parmigiano, Pienza pecorino cheese, regional style pasta and a second course of meat (Vegetarian options are also available). After dessert, transfer back to the city center.
Meeting point will be at a central location. Details will be provided in final documents.
