Tuscany tour

Posted by on Sep 20, 2011 | 0 comments


 

We will be traveling to Tuscany from November 12th to 20th with a group of 6-7 dedicated food and wine lovers to tour vineyards and explore artisanal local foods.

The tour will begin and end in Florence and travel south to Montepulciano and Montalcino, which have produced some of Italy’s greatest wines for eight centuries. We will spend several days exploring Siena and the Chianti district and will visit to the stunning medieval sites of Monte San Savino and Monte Oliveto Maggiore.

This trip is for serious food lovers, including first-time visitors and those those who already know the region well. Wine tastings and farm visits will highlight local products, and we will be hosted at the best local restaurants along the way for several five-course “slow food” feasts. We will be staying at a working farm in the Val di Chiana and doing a cooking class there while learning about Chianina, the local heritage breed of cattle used for the traditional Florentine beefsteak.

The $4,200 cost covers airfare from NYC, transportation, accommodation, excursions, site visits, tastings, breakfast, and one other ample meal per day–either an extensive lunch or an evening feast. This is a unique opportunity and promises to be an unforgettable experience.
