Guided Tuscany Food and Wine Tours

Guided Tuscany Food and Wine Tours

Unique Adventures through the food & wines of Tuscany

As Certified Tourist Guide of Arezzo and Province in Tuscany, Italy, and as Certified Tour Manager I can arrange special guided tours that feature the excellence of Tuscan food and wines in the Arezzo province and all over Tuscany and Umbria - surely an interesting, fun and enjoyable way of getting to know the region you are visiting.

I am lucky to live in a region of Italy where you can find high quality and genuine food, plus excellent wine. I love and know well our local produce, and have great contacts which I developed during the years. With me it won't be a lesson but an authentic and engaging experience that will involve all your senses ! And, in case you are after something really special, my boyfriend is a Certified Sommelier and most of all a wine lover, so between the two of us you'll get all you need to live a unique food & wine adventure in Tuscany.

I may design custom guided food & wine tours to visit Tuscan farms, wineries and oil mills, the perfect occasion to taste our great wines, olive oil, pecorino cheese, Prosciutto, honey, mushrooms and truffle.
What about a private cheese / hams / Chianina beef / Cinta pork / olive oil / wine tasting ? Think of Chianti Classico, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Brunello di Montalcino, Vernaccia di San Gimignano, the Syrahs produced in Cortona ...

Dreaming about a hands-on cooking class to learn the secrets of our wonderful Tuscan cuisine? You may want to experience our delicious food beyond the usual pasta-making: what about making your own Pecorino cheese wheel and having it sent to your home, or making your own pork sausages in a farm ? All fun "culinary adventures" suited both to adults and families with kids.
During the visit to local farms, oil mills and wineries you may buy the most typical and genuine Tuscan “pecorino”, local honey,  the purest olive oil,  Chianti wine, Nobile wine from Montepulciano, Brunello wine from Montalcino, fortified dessert wine and grappa, and if possible also assist and / or take part to the actual harvesting and processing of the product !

Fun activities you may want to experience are to learn how to make a real Pecorino cheese wheel and tagliatelle, see how the famous Abbucciato Aretino sheep's milk cheese is born in a dairy farm, learn how olive oil is made in an oil mill, try to make pork sausages in a farm, etc - fun "culinary adventures" suited to adults and families with kids. - See more at: http://tuscantoursandweddings.com/guided-food-and-wine-tours/tours#sthash.SvtI53TZ.dpuf
