This activity will end right where it started.
Your midday excursion will begin in central Florence, where you’ll join up with your guide. Hop aboard a private coach and head through the olive groves and vineyards of the Tuscan countryside. Shortly, you’ll arrive at your destination, a stunning villa and boutique wine estate tucked away in the hills.

Head first to the cellars for a tour and tasting. Learn about the region’s wine production, the effect of the climate on the grapes and the characteristics of Tuscany's famous Gallo Nero and Super Tuscan wines.

No education is complete without tasting for yourself, and your guide will pour red and whites for you to sample, noting how each varies from other Italian varietals. Lunch will be served shortly after, including traditional favorites like bruschetta and a fresh pasta dish. Take a seat in the cellar to eat and drink or, weather permitting, out in the courtyard.

Then enjoy some free time to explore the impressive grounds on your own. Stretch your legs with a walk through the gardens or jump in the private pool to cool off.

After your three hours at the villa are up, you will be returned to central Florence by coach.

Villa was nice and the pool was great and just what we needed as it was a hot day. however the wine tasting and food were a bit disappointing, the lady who showed us the wines was great and very helpful its just that we expected a few various types of wines to taste and various years of wine, not just 1 bottle of red and 1 bottle of white between 4 for us, we also expected a slightly better lunch than just pasta and fruit salad and another white wine which was same as the previous we had when testing. We also hoped to see vineyards and wine cellars which we didnt. The cost for this was more than another trip we went on which was the wine and dine tuscany countryside which was much better value for the wines and foods you got.

I had a wonderful time! Meaghan, Massimo and June were gracious hosts to me and my traveling companions. The tour of the winery and villa that Meaghan gave was especially informative. It was great to learn so much about wine and as an added bonus, we were able to taste the villa's olive oil and learn how to rate good oil! The lunch at the school was delicious, especially the creamy dessert, as were the wine's we tasted. It was a high point of my recent trip to Italy!

Highly recommend for a chilled few hours away from the heat and hassle and bustle. We didn't know what to expect to be honest but were very surprised. The two lovely ladies who welcomed us were wonderful, after the tour we went up to the pool for some chill out time. The meal is amazing- simple, fresh and delicious. Book it!
