Discover all the secrets of wine production while visiting a Boutique Winery and enjoy a fantastic 5 hours tasting dinner paired with local award winning wines.
The perfect experience where you will discover all the secrets of the production of Wine and Olive Oil while visiting and dining at a boutique Winery in the Chianti wine region.
Wine and Olive Oil are the essence and the two kings of Tuscan food and wine culture. There is no Tuscan recipe that doesn't include olive oil in its preparation and doesn't consider a specific wine to be paired with.
With a 25 minute ride, a comfortable van will shuttle you to the green and beautiful rolling hills of the Chianti Wine Region, in the Tuscan countryside.
Marvellous landscapes of vineyards and olive groves will surround you, while you reach the winery on top of a hill.
With this fine dinner experience, you will discover all the secrets of the production of Wine and Olive Oil while visiting and dining at a boutique Winery in the Chianti Wine region.
Once there, a wine expert will welcome you and take you for the ancient cellar visit, still used today for wine production. The sommelier will explain the sophisticated techniques of wine making and teach you to distinguish the different and various scents and flavors that each wine presents.
Thanks to this special Wine Lab experience you’ll be able to understand how different varieties of pure wines (from Sangiovese, Canaiolo grapes etc.) are blended to obtain the final complex wines, each one with a peculiar bouquet of scents and flavors.
You will then be served dinner, while you will learn the basics of pairing different wines with specific dishes. You will enjoy 4 different wines, including Chianti and Supertuscan.
The gourmet menu may change according to the season, but an example could be local charcuterie (cold-cuts like typical prosciutto – Tuscan ham – and salami) and a cheese selection, paired with different jams and balsamic vinegar, a selection of two pasta dishes and a main course made of a traditional meat dish.
A Tuscan dessert is then served with local sweet wine.
Before being shuttled back to Florence, you will have the chance to purchase local organic wines at a special production price.
