Wine, cuisine and culture from Tuscany

We have always considered it an absurdity that places dedicated to wine ceased to exist in Florence after the disappearance of the old wine merchants. By this we mean particular places where wine is poured and where one may end up seated at a table,
savouring the pleasures of a break for conversation and tasting. For this we propose tasting meetings and an introduction to the pleasures of Tuscan wine and food, cooking lessons and excursions to wineries. All this in an entertaining atmosphere, and a splendid renaissance environment.

Here are some examples:

A tasting session about Tuscan wines led by our wine-making expert - duration about 2 hours, including tasting of three wines accompanied with some toasts.

A cooking lesson from 5 to 9 p.m. with a historic introduction to the dishes and their preparation. From 7 to 8.30 p.m. you will have dinner with the specialities you have prepared and wines that go well with them.

An excursion of one or half day, accompanied by our wine-making expert, to small Tuscan farm-houses, including a visit to their wine-cellars, wine tasting and light snack.

A program of one or two weeks including Italian language lessons in the mornings and wine tasting sessions, cooking lessons and excursions to the Chianti and Montalcino districts in the afternoons

The first three activities can be organized specially for yourself on any day of the year. The last program is held as a group course on fixed dates. Detailed information and prices available on the internet at the address, clicking respectively the options "wine tasting", "cooking lessons", "farm excursions", and "Bread, wine and language.”
