What You Can Expect

Florence Cheese and Wine Tasting

Enjoy wine and cheese tasting

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 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 would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Florence, that may not have time to make it out to the any of the wineries. This was a great way to experience some of the local wines while staying right in the city! It is also a beautiful thing that all of the wines that you taste on this are very delicious and affordable if you wanted to purchase at the end of the tour.

We had a very nice time here, learning a lot about the local wines and foods. The tasting host gave us great tips on what to look for in wines and olive oils and the best things to pair with each type of wine. We got to taste some different types of wine than we did on the rest of our trip through tuscany and the shop was beautiful.
