WINE & COOK:
OUR 21 YEAR OLD CLASSIC, NOW UPGRADED!
THIS IS THE COMBINATION OF OUR MOST EXTENSIVE WINE TOUR AND OUR FULL EVENING COOKING CLASS.
As native Italians, we know all too well that there is no part-time when it comes to food and wine.
Escape the hustle and bustle of the busy city life to the undiscovered Chianti countryside, enjoy wine at a family owned winery, wish a good day goodnight sit at a kitchen table in a historical private Chianti home, breathe in the smells, take in the sounds, savor the flavors: an inebriating sensorial experience awaits you.
This experience has been our best-seller for 21 years. As it becomes “of age”, we feel it has earned an upgrade.
Pick-up is at 2:30pm*, to allow you a full morning of sightseeing in Florence and a light lunch, before we meet.
We’ll take you back in time, to an XI century hamlet on top of a hill in Chianti, or a Medici Villa (depending on the day), both surrounded by breathtaking views: you will become part of a moving Renaissance painting, away from crowds and typical tourist destinations.
Once at the estate, (35 min. ride, approximately) we’ll visit the working winery, with its fermentation tanks and aging barrels, and enjoy a plentiful tasting of certified wines.
Then, in 15 minutes or less, we will arrive at our cooking class location: the setting is our private historical home on the hills over Florence – where we’ll learn how to make homemade pasta from scratch and other delicacies like you’ve never had before: NATURALLY low gluten, low cal, low carb, and yet more nutritious and satisfying.
(It’s a hands-on lesson, you don’t just watch a chef do all the work …)
We have added a bubbly welcome toast with prosecco and nibbles.
The tour will end up with a plentiful home-cooked dinner, unlimited wine, coffee, homemade dessert and homemade liquors included.
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 meal with a health twist, and simply to enjoy an afternoon and evening in the peaceful and romantic Chianti countryside.
