ON REQUEST

WINE AND OLIVE OIL TASTING CLASSES
Minimum 6 people; maximum 20 people



Using all the senses, participants are guided to recognize the different characteristics of wines and olive oils. We approach the tasting with the right methods and learn to identify the diversity between young and aged wine, the best conditions for keeping wine at home, the correct way to serve, and the best wines to pair with food.
Six wines and four extra virgin olive oils are offered by the winemaker in order to recognize different flavours. This program lasts about three hours.

 

COOKING CLASSES
Minimum 6 people; Maximum 10 people

The courses are based on typical Chianti cuisine and are organized in the kitchens of the best restaurants in the Chianti area. Chefs teach the preparation of a full menu which is then served to participants, each dish paired with a fine wine from the region.
Classes can also be organized directly in the villas or accommodations where guests are staying. The chef will prepare an informal complete menu with the help of participants.
