What to expect

Learn the culinary history of the Tuscany region from a professional sommelier. During the course of an hour you'll taste three delicious Tuscan wines, as well as with two types of olive oils and three local cheeses, like the delicious pecorino.

Your expert sommelier will not only teach about the wines and cheeses, but will also explain how to enjoy them just as the locals do. This experience takes place in an intimate setting at a respected Italian wine bar and, thanks to the small group size, you'll be able to get to know the sommelier and ask questions along the way. You'll be guided through a journey across the history of the Chianti region, the different varieties of grapes, and much more.

This activity is the perfect way to taste and discover Tuscan wine, like a local!
