Your tour will begin at an enoteca in Florence’s San Lorenzo district. This historic wine bar first opened in 1895 and has stayed in the hands of family since.

Join up with the owner and award-winning sommelier, Livio, and settle into your seat. As you begin to taste the selection of four Tuscan wines and a delicious spread of local produce, Livio will provide insightful background on the history of the enoteca and the distinct characteristics of each wine, including how they are made, which vineyards they come from and the delicacies that pair best with your glass. 

Though menus vary with the season, expect to try fresh fruit, local cheeses, cold cuts, high-quality olive oils and pourings of the Super Tuscan Noir and Chianti Colli Senesi DOCG red. (A sample menu is provided in the Itinerary.)

As you sip and sample, feel free to ask Livio questions or simply relax and take in the scene around you. After an hour of tasting, your tour will conclude.

This tour was awesome! I was traveling alone so it was nice to be able to sit down with a small group there were only three others attending and enjoy great wine. Good value for money and just an overall great Florence experience!

This was one of our absolute favorite parts of our entire trip. The lovely owner of La Divina Enoteca was both congenial and knowledgable, and we learned quite a bit and enjoyed ourselves immensely! Everything was absolutely delicious from the wines, to the cheeses, and the conversation - thank you for an incredible experience - one which we won't ever forget!

I enjoyed this experience and learned some new things about local wine and cheese. The presenter was very knowledgeable and approachable, and the setting was conducive. It was a very small group the day I went, so it was quite personal - I think the group size is always kept low, so I'm sure it would be fine. It was not cheap for a short session, but it was a good experience.
