- Discover the secrets behind the wine and olive oil production in the renowned Chianti Region
EVERY DAY available from 9 AM to 3 PM
Wine and Olive Oil are the essence and the two kings of Tuscan food and wine culture. There is no Tuscan recipe that
doesn’t include olive oil in its preparation and doesn’t consider a specific wine to be paired with. 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. Marvelous landscapes of vineyards and olive groves will surround you, while you reach the winery on top of a hill (approx. a 25 minute ride).
Once there, a wine expert will welcome you and take you for the ancient cellar visit, still used today for wine production.
The sommelier will explain the sophisticated techniques of wine making and teach you to distinguish the different and
various scents and flavors that each wine presents. A special Wine Lab experience, fun and educational, 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 flavors. You will then be served dinner, while you will learn the basics of pairing different wines with specific dishes. You will enjoy 4 different wines, including Supertuscan wines -from the estate-. Plus, a sweet typical dessert wine. You will also taste the region’s finest olive oil with typical unsalted Tuscan bread. The gourmet 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 selection of two pasta dishes and a main course made of a traditional meat dish. A Tuscan dessert is then served with local sweet wine. The friendly atmosphere of this Tuscan dinner will let you enjoy a relaxing break from the city chaos, while learning interesting facts and secrets about the Tuscan food and wine culture and tasting some truly gourmet products.
