Nestled in the hills overlooking Florence is a 15th century villa and vineyard. Separated from the city by narrow winding roads, it’s surprisingly quiet given its proximity to the city – as attested by the large population of rabbits and pheasants that run freely from vineyard to olive grove.

Escape the city for an evening of wine, food and good conversation in this spectacular location. We’ll whisk you straight from the city center for a comfortable 10-minute drive up to the villa, where you’ll be greeted by the villa's winemaker and treated to a tour.

During our Florence wine tours you’ll learn about the unique blends used in their wines. Hear how their delicious white and red wines are crafted from a precise blend of Merlot, Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Pinot Bianco grapes, as you pass through every stage learning the process. You’ll tour the olive groves and vineyards and also the underground wine cellar before sampling the wares for yourself. And who better to guide this experience than the person who created them?

You’ll enjoy a full tasting of four wines – one white, two red and one special dessert wine – with commentary from the winemaker on what flavorful notes they’ve inserted and how.

After your wine tour they’ll lead you to the villa’s beautiful garden where you’ll find a table laid for a feast. Soak up the tranquility of the evening and enjoy the company of your fellow guests as you dine on such local specialties as crostini, prosciutto ham, parmigiano cheese and pecorino cheese from Pienza. This is a full Tuscan spread so these appetizers will be followed by regional-style pasta for primi (or first course) and a traditional secondi (second course) of meat and potatoes. Of course you’ll also find options available for vegetarians and those with special diets.

As the evening fades to night, watch the sun set over Florence from your countryside table and polish off the night with dessert. Full of food and wine you don’t want to have to worry about transport so we’ve organized a transfer to take you back to the city center.

With its authentic Tuscan food and wine our intimate evening experience is an ideal way to end a perfect day in Florence.
