Luxury Tour

THE VERY BEST FOR LOVERS
OF TUSCAN WINE & FOOD
September 12 - 20, 2022

Limited to 12 adults

SOLD OUT

Join me on this luxury tour on which I will take you to the greatest wineries in Tuscany. Explore the collectible Super Tuscans, the finest Chianti Classicos and the gems of Brunello di Montalcino.

I have created a “bucket list” trip that will bring you privileged and personal access to Tuscany’s most prized wineries and first class treatment at three of the top hotels in Tuscany. For wine lovers, this will be an exclusive and fun trip-of-a-lifetime.

I have chosen the best of the best for this trip. After starting in Florence, we will visit three of the top wineries in Italy: Ornellaia, Grattamacco, and Tua Rita all along the beautiful Tuscan coast. The trip continues to the heart of postcard-perfect Tuscany, with its cypress-lined roads, medieval hill towns, UNESCO sites and endless vineyards, where we will explore the land of Brunellos and Chiantis including visits to top producers: Poggio di Sotto, Cappanelle, Mastrojanni and Antinori. With my years of experience in the Italian wine business, I have cultivated relationships with wineries and winery owners throughout Tuscany opening up VIP winery experiences for you that you could never get on your own. We will taste some of the top-rated wines of the world and rare wines that are usually not available for tasting. Take advantage of the opportunity to buy these hard-to-find wines and have them shipped home for you.

 

Luxurious Accommodations:

At three of the best hotels in Tuscany, two of which are Leading Hotels of the World. You will have time to enjoy the spa facilities and/or treatments!

 

Unforgettable Food Experiences:

Meals at 3 different Michelin-starred restaurants.

Lunches at Ornellaia, Tua Rita and Antinori prepared specifically for our private group paired with their top wines. I have worked with the staff at each winery to provide you with these food and wine experiences where they will “pull out all the stops,” and that are simply not available to the public. 

Dinner at a private castle whose owner will host us for dinner and a tour of his museum-like “house.”

Lunch at arguably the most famous butcher shop in the world! Let your hair down and have a super-fun, family-style meal with abundant wine (of course!). Taste specialty Tuscan cheeses, meats and olive oils. 

 

Throughout it all, I will be there to guide you through the history and background of the wine and food you will be tasting. Join me and let me take care of all the details of the journey for you so that you can just enjoy.
