What You Can Expect

Wine Tasting and Dinner at a Private Tuscan Villa from Florence

Enjoy Tuscan wine and food at a historical villa!

Your tour will begin in central Florence near Santa Maria Novella Station, where you’ll hop aboard your minivan with your guide. Travel a short distance outside of the city center to reach the scenic vineyards and olive groves that surround the 17th-century villa.

Take a tour of the picturesque grounds with the villa’s winemaker and listen to some of the secrets of the trade. Hear about the villa’s production process and learn how blends are created from merlot, cabernet sauvignon, sangiovese and pinot bianco grapes.

Then, toast cin cin! Sample the villa’s limited-edition red, white and dessert wine, soaking up the characteristics of each.

Afterward, take a seat in the gardens if the weather is clear, or inside the villa for a 4-course feast. Savor local specialties such as crostini, parmesan and Pienza pecorino cheese, prosciutto ham, a traditional meat dish and pasta, with vegetarian options available. Take in the villa’s panoramic views while you dine on the fresh ingredients of Tuscan classics. Don’t forget to save room for the traditional Italian dessert served after dinner.

Your evening out will conclude with a smooth ride back to your original departure point in Florence.

This villa on its gorgeous grounds is a small-producing winery. It makes excellent olive oil and wines that are not marketed but only sold on the estate. We toured the grounds, learned the wine-making process, tasted several full-glasses of wines with aperitifs in the cellars, and had a fabulous dinner in the dining room. Very, very fun, and we highly recommend it!

This tour was amazing! Laura was the best - we got so much wine! And the food was amazing. It was worth every penny. The tour was really fun and Laura knew so much history about the Villa which made it even more fun.

The wine was really good - we ended up buying three bottles. It was also awesome because all the food and olive oil was either grown on the Villa estate or sourced locally.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

A real treat to have dinner and a tour with a group at such a beautiful villa/vineyard in Florence. Our guide was very good.

This is a beautiful setting just a short drive from central Florence. The food was good, the wine was great and the guide knowledgeable and personable. The setting is ideal and learned about a small vineyard and its wine production. Total excursion was the right amount of time and late in the day which left time to do other things.

This was one of my favorite wine tasting and dinner. The Villa was stunning with the gardens and the architecture. This tour was small and intimate. The food and wine was delightful and give us a sense of what it is like to live here!
