With this fine dinner experience, you will discover all the secrets of the production of wine and olive oil while visiting and dining at a boutique winery in the Chianti wine region.
With a 25 minute ride, a comfortable minivan will shuttle you to the green and beautiful rolling hills of the Chianti wine region, in the Tuscan countryside. Marvellous landscapes of vineyards and olive groves will surround you, while you reach the winery on top of a hill.
Once there, a wine expert will welcome you and take you for the ancient cellar visi. The sommelier will explain the sophisticated techniques of wine making and teach you how to distinguish the different and various scents and flavours that each wine presents.
A special wine making experience, fun and ecucational for everyone, will let you understand how different varieties of pure wines (from Sangiovese, Canaiolo grapes etc.) are blended to obtain the final complex wines, each one with a peculiar bouquet of scents and flavours.
After the demonstration, you will become the enologist, creating your own personal wine blend that will be bottled for you, with a special label as souvenir of this unique experience.
An incredible hands-on activity that will turn you into a real winemaker!
You will then be served dinner, while you will learn the basics of pairing different wines with specific dishes. You will enjoy a 5-course gourmet Tuscan tasting paired with 5 different wines, including Chianti and Supertuscan - from the estate - and a sweet typical dessert wine.
You will also taste the region's finest olive oil with typical unsalted Tuscan bread.
The menu may change according to the season, but an example could be local charcuterie (cold-cuts like typical prosciutto – Tuscan ham – and salami) and a cheese selection, paired with different jams and balsamic vinegar, a first course with pasta and a main course made of a traditional meat dish. A Tuscan dessert is then served with local sweet wine.
Vegetarian options are also available (please inform us in advance).
