Then this educational wine tour is for you! Don’t miss a chance to become a wine expert and wow your friends at the next dinner party. Buy a seat at our Italian wine school today!
The tour will start early in the morning. You will be picked up at your hotel in Florence or Siena at 8:30 (8:00 if you are boarding from the port of Livorno). Then we will drive to the Chianti Classico region where you will have 30 minutes to visit a charming little hilltop village. After that, we will move on to the school of wine for two hours of intense learning and tasting!
The class will be taught by a certified sommelier and wine taster. He will focus on two main topics:
• Tuscany and its wines
• How to taste wine
The learning session in Tuscany’s wine school will be followed by a terrific four-course, gourmet lunch accompanied by exquisite wines pre-selected personally by me.
But that is not all! Knowledge is nothing without practice which is why after our educational part of the wine school is over, we will go to a real winery and visit its cellars for some more tasting. There you will get an opportunity to recap everything that you have learned and put it into practice.
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 !
Don’t worry! Your personal taste and dietary preferences will be taken into consideration.
