What You Can Expect
Hop out of your vehicle and head inside the villa for a cellar tour and wine tasting, sampling some of the classic wines of the region. Hear about wine production in Tuscany – the grapes used, the terrain and the climate – and learn about the different Tuscan wine such as Super Tuscan and the esteemed Gallo Nero while walking around the cellars.
Sip on a red and white wines, noting the characteristics that set them apart from other Italian varietals. Italians love to eat as they drink, so follow their lead and soak up the delicious wine with lunch next to the pool during nice weather or in the cellar if it's raining. Dishes vary, but expect treats like bruschetta with ruby-red tomatoes plus a fresh pasta dish.
After your relaxing lunch, make the most of your free time at the gorgeous villa. Towels are provided, so perhaps take a dip in the secluded pool and then bask in the sun with a book. Alternatively, the villa’s colorful garden and rustic vineyard are perfect for leisurely strolls.
Travel back to central Florence after staying in the villa by the pool-side on your own enjoying Tuscany. At the end of this unique and relaxing Tuscan villa experience, transport will be provided to return you to central Florence.
I had a wonderful time! Meaghan, Massimo and June were gracious hosts to me and my traveling companions. The tour of the winery and villa that Meaghan gave was especially informative. It was great to learn so much about wine and as an added bonus, we were able to taste the villa's olive oil and learn how to rate good oil! The lunch at the school was delicious, especially the creamy dessert, as were the wine's we tasted. It was a high point of my recent trip to Italy!
Villa was nice and the pool was great and just what we needed as it was a hot day. however the wine tasting and food were a bit disappointing, the lady who showed us the wines was great and very helpful its just that we expected a few various types of wines to taste and various years of wine, not just 1 bottle of red and 1 bottle of white between 4 for us, we also expected a slightly better lunch than just pasta and fruit salad and another white wine which was same as the previous we had when testing. We also hoped to see vineyards and wine cellars which we didnt. The cost for this was more than another trip we went on which was the wine and dine tuscany countryside which was much better value for the wines and foods you got.
