The pearl of central Tuscany and its most original winery & butcher’s. A guided tour to an agricultural area producing a great variety of excellent wines, whose center, San Miniato, is also a marvellous town of unexpected art and a breathtaking panoramic hilltop in the very center of Tuscany.





The visit to a butcher’s & lunch
With our guide you will visit one of the most renowned butcher’s shops of central Tuscany: we visit the shop of the butcher. Here you will learn how they produce high quality meats, bistecca and cold cuts and have a great lunch, enjoying the delicious meats and hams produced there and other typical dishes, including an unforgettable T-bone steak and a glass of quality local wine.

An original winery near San Miniato
The territory of San Miniato is spotted with a lot of small family-run wineries producing very original and delicious wines. Our tour ends with the visit to one of these companies, in a beautiful countryside. Our guide and a representative of the winery show you the reasons why their wines are so peculiar and you will learn a lot about the winemaking techniques of Tuscany and the features of the wines of San Miniato.
At the end of the visit to the winery, you will relax in a tasting room where the best wines of the company will be served in a guided wine tasting session.

This is a message of Ian from Canada who visited our wine estate near San Miniato while staying in Tuscany with his family:

Hi Consuelo

Thank you for your e-mail.

I wanted to drop you a note of thanks for arranging such a wonderful day for our family.

To begin with, the tour of Lucca with Wanda was fantastic. Her historical knowledge made for a very interesting morning and her enthusiasm throughout the tour brought the town to life! Please pass on our thanks and appreciation to Wanda.

And just when we thought things couldn’t get any better, we had an absolutely wonderful afternoon during our wine tasting tour at Cosmo’s estate.

Laura (from Ireland!) was a perfect hostess. She took us on a relaxing tour of the gorgeous grounds (with lots of grapes to sample), explained the wine making process and finished with a casual and very enjoyable hour of outdoor wine and olive oil tastings in the family gardens. What a perfect way to spend an afternoon. We purchased some wine and olive oil and both were a big hit with family and friends back here in Canada.

Thanks again, Consuelo, for organizing our day, (suggesting that we see Pisa on our own) and allowing us to meet such wonderful people like Wanda and Laura. Our memories of our day in Tuscany are fond indeed and we would highly recommend our tour experiences to others.

Hopefully we will come to visit once again. If so, we will be sure to contact you.

Yours truly,
