Duration: 2+2 hours
A great experience for wine lovers visiting Tuscany who want to taste delicious local wines while staying home relaxed at their villa, maybe by the pool or in a charming veranda. We offer private wine tasting experiences with introduction to the winemaking traditions of Tuscany, serving 7 different wines with little snacks, all arranged by our experienced wine tour guide.
La bella vita in Toscana
The most comfortable way to enjoy delicious wines while visiting our worderful Tuscany. You comfortably sit in the park of your villa, maybe in a panoramic veranda or by the pool, while our experienced wine tour guide gets to your villa and sets the table for all your party, choosing the most suitable space of your rented property. If your party is made of more that 7 people, an assistant/waiter will also serve during the experience. After preparing some little snacks to be paired with the wines for about 1 hour, our guide will give you a first introduction to the world of Tuscan wines. It is an informal yet very informative wine sampling experience, for which no previous knowledge on Italian wines is required. It is appropriate for all the people in your party!
A sampling session of 7 different wines
While giving you plenty of information on the features of local wines and telling you stories about great wineries, our guide will be happy to answer to all your questions and explain in detail any curiosity that you might have. One by one you will taste 7 different wines, starting from two whites (or one white and one rosee), two entry level reds, two aged medium-bodied reds and one top-of-the-gamma red in a wine tasting experience that will take 2 hours. Each wine will be presented in detail with the help of a technical file for your reference and during the sampling session some food will be served like focaccia, bread and cold meats, cheese or bruschettas.
Wonderful moments with your beloved people
As the wine tasting experience goes towards more structured and full-bodied wines, you will have the chance to share with your people wonderful moments of learning and amusement in a spectacular setting. Our local wine expert will make sure that all the participants enjoy the experience, even if the previous knowledge on wines differs a lot. Before leaving, our staff will also clean up the kitchen and the table for roughly another hour. If you finally want to buy some other bottles of wine, a provision will be available.

Here a message we received from Kevin, who had Massimo for a wine tasting session at his villa in Chianti Classico in early June 2019:
Just wanted to drop you a note to say how much my family and friends loved the session yesterday hosted by Massimo.
He was a perfect gentleman, knowledgeable and passionate for his craft. The entire attendees, some of which were not even wine lovers, were engrossed and enjoyed the event immensely.
Please pass on our feedback.
Also one small favour, if you may, what was the name of the softer/newer cheese that Massimo served us? My friend Adele would love to buy some.
With kindest regards
