Description

Wine and olive oil are at the center 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. On this winemaking and gourmet 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. After a 25 minute ride in a comfortable can you will arrive in the green rolling hills of the Chianti Wine Region, in the Tuscan countryside. Marvelous landscapes of vineyards and olive groves will surround you, while you reach the winery on top of a hill. Once there, a wine expert will welcome you and take you for the ancient cellar visit. The sommelier will explain the sophisticated techniques of winemaking and teach you to distinguish the different and various scents and flavors that each wine presents. A special winemaking experience, fun and educational for everyone, will help 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. After the demonstration, you will become the enologist, creating your own personal wine blend. An incredible hands-on activity that will turn you into a real winemaker! You will then be served dinner, while you will learn the basics of pairing different wines with specific dishes. You will enjoy 3 different wines, including Chianti and Supertuscan from the estates. 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, the first course with pasta 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.
