This particular EDUCATIONAL WINE TOUR is for those of you that are longing to discover more about how to taste wine correctly, for those of you willing to discover how to evaluate wine properly and also for those of you that want to understand more about Tuscany and its wines !
We will pick you up in the morning (at 8.30 a.m.) at your hotel in Florence or Siena (at 8.00a.m. from the port of Livorno) and we will drive to the Chianti Classico region, where you will have, first the possibility to enjoy a visit to a small hill top town (about 30 minutes ) before to move on to our wine school for a pretty intense morning of “learning and tasting” !
The wine class will be carried out by a certified sommelier and certified wine taster and it will last a good two hours. The wine class will focus on “Tuscany and its wines “ and on “How to taste wine” and it will be followed by a terrific 4 courses, gourmet lunch paired with wines personally selected by myself !
In order to refine properly your educational wine experience, after lunch we will go to a winery for a visit to the cellars and for tasting their wines, thus to let you have the opportunity to put into action and to recap with what you have learned in the morning.
Big attention will be also dedicated to the choice of the restaurant for lunch. I will take care to select the right place for you, where you will have the possibility to continue your educational wine & food experience , always with respect for your own personal tastes and eventual dietary orientations !
Just for your reference, consider for this tour an average extra expense of 50Euro – 60Euro per person for the visit and tasting at the winery and about 100/120Euro per person for the gourmet lunch with wine pairing. However with regard to lunch, whether you were not interested in the “gourmet lunch with wine pairing” you can always eat well (about 50/60Euro per person), choosing directly from the menu according to your own personal tastes, appetite and budget !
