Learn authentic Tuscan cooking techniques and recipes...
Italy And Wine specializes in wine tours. For
the curious type wanting to know a bit of viticulture and the wine making process,
or the novice wanting to learn how to taste and appreciate quality wines,
I will provide a tour which will be entertaining, informative and fun.
Italy And Wine was formed in 2004 as a result
of a long term love of Italy, its wines, food and way of life. It all
started in the 1990s when I was studying as a Sommelier. In 2005 I started to offer my guests a special wine tasting lesson in Florence to teach as much as possible about Tuscan wines and Sangiovese grape
Wine Tasting Course .
This is without a doubt the most well-known italian red wine in the world. Born from the combination of the sangiovese vines with the traditional Canaiolo and Colorino. Its color is ruby red , tending to garnet.
This tour will take you into the heart of the Chianti Classico. You will visit two wineries, one of which is located in a true medieval castle. Here, wine and history come together in a single scenario.
This tour is designed for connoisseurs who love the Brunello di Montalcino. This is probably the most famous wine of Italy. You will be accompanied to the visit of two small wineries that produce great wines.
Montepulciano is like a mini-Florence, and for that reason alone it is worth visiting.
The Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is a high quality aged red wine. At the typical vines of Chianti are added in small quantities Mammolo.
San Gimignano is the poster child for Tuscany and the epitome of a
medieval Italian hilltop town. It is famouse for the Vernaccia
di San Gimignano which is a white wine made from grapes grown
The lush green hills that surround Verona have been the home of indigenous
vines for over 2,000 years. We'll visit celebrated vineyards each
producing their own versions of the Amarone "the big dry one".
