Full description
Find yourself in a completely different world as you visit an authentic Tuscan winery. You will become surrounded by enchanting rows of huge oak botti that represent traditional Italian wine making, as well as French barics that were a revolutionary challenge not too long ago. You can try biologic wines such as Nobile di Montepulciano, Chianti, and Rosso, all of which are from different terroirs and years. Legendary winemakers will tell you just about everything there is to know about wines, such as the history and production techniques, some secrets of how to select the best wine bottles, how to pair them with dishes, and much more.

The wine is born in a vineyard, and there is nothing better than to see it with your own eyes. At the same time, you will not only take a walk along the endless rows of vines, but also enjoy a BBQ picnic in a traditional Tuscan style. You will taste bruschetta topped with fresh tomatoes, a special pâté of olives and chicken liver, a variety of cheese accompanied with red pepper jam, BBQ ribs, and much more.

Your delicious journey through Tuscany will then continue. High on a hill with an enchanting view over the famous hills of the Orcia Valley, there is a family-run cheese-making factory, where the cheese makers make more than 30 different types of cheese from only 2 kinds of milk. You will not just try the most varied tastes of the famous Pecorino di Pienza, but will also learn and see how real Italian cheese is made and aged.

You will later visit the Medieval town of Pienza, founded by the Etruscans and transformed 600 years ago, thanks to the Pope Pius II, to an extraordinary “ideal” city. This area is also the place that Ridley Scott chose for the key moment of his Oscar-awarded legendary film “Gladiator”. An unforgettable beauty awaits you, and the sun, slowly hiding behind the hills, will give a happy feeling that another day has been enjoyed meaningfully.
