The perfect wine experience gift in Tuscany
Here is what you will live
You're celebrating a romantic weekend in Siena or Florence and you are looking for a special afternoon experience to enjoy with you wine lover partner? This private tour will satisfy your desires!
The tour starts at 2.30 pm from your hotel in Florence or Siena area, where a personal english speaking driver will pick you up to assist you for the rest of the day. The first stop is Montemaggio Winery.
Here you meet the wine maker or the wine hospitality manager of the Winery and start with a walk in the vineyards and gardens (both vegetable and other), cellar, and tasting room all the while explaining the details of organic agriculture. You will truly learn the details of growing grapevines organically, and making and tasting wine.
The tasting will include a sampling of all our products, a mini “degustation” course with various delicious snacks, followed by a blind tasting in black customized glasses. You will taste and compare new and old vintages, taste corked or oxidized wine, and learn the difference using only your sense of smell and taste. Often our perception is guided by what we see. When sight is eliminated, we realize the world is changing up side down in a way we never comprehended. This is a fun experience that will challenge your wine perception and add something new to your wine world!
After the tour your driver brings you to the next stop which is San Gimignano, probably one of the most romantic villages in Tuscany.
