What to expect

Wine and olive oil are 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. Thanks to this fine experience, you will get the chance to discover all the secrets of wine and olive oil production while dining and visiting a winery boutique in the Chianti wine region.

After a short van ride, you'll reach the green and beautiful rolling hills of the Chianti wine region in the Tuscan countryside. Marvelous landscapes of vineyards and olive groves will surround you as you approach the winery on top of a hill. Once there, a wine expert will welcome you and take you for a visit to the ancient cellar, still used today for wine production. The sommelier will explain the sophisticated techniques of winemaking and teach you to distinguish the various scents and flavors that characterize each wine.

Then, enjoy a special wine-making experience, a fun and educational activity that will lead you to understand how different varieties of pure wines (from Sangiovese, Canaiolo grapes etc.) are blended to obtain complex wines, each one with a peculiar bouquet of scents and flavors. After the demonstration, you will turn into an enologist, creating your own wine blend.

You will then be served dinner while you will learn the basics of pairing different wines with specific dishes. You will enjoy four different wines, including Chianti and Supertuscan from the estate, plus a sweet typical dessert wine. You will also taste the region's finest olive oil with typical unsalted Tuscan bread.

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 pasta dish as first course and a traditional meat dish as main course. A Tuscan dessert is then served with local sweet wine.
