Head to the rolling hills of Chianti to visit an ancient boutique winery
First you will board a comfortable air-conditioned minivan with which you will travel to the green and rolling hills of Chianti from Florence in about 25 minutes. You will be surrounded by breathtaking landscapes, olive groves, castles, and historic estates. Be enchanted by the wonder that lies beyond your window. Tall cypress trees, beaten earth paths and vineyards as far as the eye can see. This is indeed the wine region producing some of the world's most acclaimed and beloved wines. Relaxed and rejuvenated by all this wonder you will be ready to immerse yourself in a historic hilltop wine cellar. Upon arrival, you will be greeted by an experienced sommelier who will take you on a tour of the winery.
Blend diverse and fine grapes to create your own personalized bottle of wine
The wine-making process is long, rigid, and built over centuries of winemaking. Our experienced and passionate sommelier will tell you all about it: techniques, secrets, anecdotes, and stories. He will teach you how to distinguish the different bouquets of aromas and flavors that each wine presents. All these notions will be essential for you to later work on creating your own wine. You got it right! You will choose which grapes to use, and our sommelier will help you dose them in the best way to create a customized variety. The wine will then be bottled for you as a special souvenir of your experience. This incredible activity will turn you into a real wine maker and will be something you will not forget!
Savor a five-course traditional Tuscan dinner
After the wine workshop activity, it's time to relax and enjoy some great food! You can taste the best the winery has to offer paired with a delicious meal. You will have a five-course gourmet Tuscan dinner made of traditional, local and seasonal ingredients and a different wine for each course, including a Chianti, a Supertuscan, and a typical sweet dessert wine. You will also taste the region's best olive oil with typical salt-free bread.
