What To Expect
Our evening begins with a comfortable 10-minute transfer from Florence's city center to the enchanting villa we have hand selected for a relaxing evening of wine, pleasant conversation and delicious Tuscan food. When you arrive at the stunning location of this historical 17th century villa, you'll find it hard to believe that we are just steps away from the city center of Florence. We'll be sheltered from the noise and lights of the city by narrow hilly roads, vineyards and olive groves. This magical place is so tranquil and protected that it's likely you'll come across rabbits and pheasants during your walk of the villa's grounds.
You'll personally meet the villa's wine-maker who will proudly share the achievements and secrets of his amazing wines, and you'll explore the elaborate production process of the olive oil and wines that are made here. Take a stroll of the picturesque grounds, and learn how the villa produces several unique white and red wines from a selection of Merlot, Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, chardonnay and Pinot Bianco grapes. We'll visit the underground wine cellar and have a look at the machines used today, for a fascinating overview of the production.
After learning all about how these incredible wines are made, we'll have the opportunity to try four of them in a guided tasting: one white, two reds and a special dessert wine. Each is delicious and unique! These wines are all of limited production and can only be found at this Villa.
Your experience will end the villa's garden with a hearty, Tuscan four-course meal. Dine on typical dishes such as crostini, prosciutto, Parmigiano, Pienza pecorino cheese, regional style pasta and a second course of meat and potatoes. Vegetarian options are also available*. Delight in each delicious dish as you take in the incredible panoramic views. After dessert, we'll provide a transfer back to the city center.
