ACTIVITIES

Our Activities

We are committed to staying unique  by offering

 

  • The privilege of small numbers… without the price of luxury:

    • We run any activity with as few as 2 guests and a MAXIMUM of 8 (unless you book a private party with more guests).
  • The homey atmosphere of a real Tuscan home…without the language barrier:

    • Friendly, knowledgeable, English speaking hosts.
  • The competence of nearly 1/4 century experience…without the academic feel:

    • We host our guests in our historical family home; we work in our kitchen, we eat in our dining room.

 

Our classic “Wine  & Cook” has been our most popular for nearly two and a half decades,
but we constantly work to improve and add exciting new options and details.

WINE & COOK  experience

THIS IS OUR CLASSIC FULL TUSCAN EXPERIENCE:

A COMBINATION OF our MOST EXTENSIVE WINE TOUR and our EVENING COOKING CLASS.

OUR 24 YEAR OLD CLASSIC, NOW UPGRADED!

As native Italians, we know all too well that there is no rushing when it comes to food and wine.

Seeing the undiscovered Chianti countryside, enjoying wine at a family owned winery, being part of the scenery, wishing a good day goodnight while sitting at a kitchen table in a historical private home, breathing in the smells, taking in the sounds:            an all-Italian, inebriating sensorial experience.

(It’s a hands-on lesson, you don’t just watch a chef do all the work …)

We recommend it as the ultimate authentic, full experience of real Tuscan life, as well as a fun yet educational way to master the most typical Italian dish with a health twist, and simply to enjoy an afternoon and evening in the peaceful and romantic Chianti countryside.

FAMILY & FRIENDS cooking class 

 BEING ON A BUDGET DOESN’T MEAN YOU CAN’T EXPERIENCE THE REAL TUSCAN EXPERIENCE!

         We have created a “paperback” version of our classic Cooking Class, and priced it accordingly:

traveling with family or on a budget doesn’t mean you have to give up the Tuscan experience!

We are happy to offer an affordable hands-on, healthy and fun experience, a plentiful lunch with wine for the adults,

juice for the kids, and homemade dessert for everyone! Transportation included.

FAMILIES: if you are traveling with younger ones, and would like a real FAMILY experience, what could be better than making pasta in a FAMILY HOME? Our garden offers a safe space for kids to run around, play pingpong, shoot the hoop, lay in the hammock if and when they get tired of the class, while the adults can still enjoy learning more without distractions
