A passionate wine producer will teach you how to recognize different flavours, and how to develop your taste buds. Don't worry- this is not a real school where you have to take notes! Only fun is guaranteed. To accompany the wine, you will also be sampling a 30-year-old balsamic vinegar, the aphrodisiac truffle oil and a classic extra virgin olive oil.
Your second stop will be at a local winery located in the D.O.C.G Vernaccia white wine region, overlooking the stunning towers of San Gimignano. Here, you will be guided through the wine production process from vineyard to cellar by the wine makers, who will then share the secrets of the best wine and food combinations. At the winery you will enjoy three wines; the famous Vernaccia white wine, a rosè wine and a Chianti colli senesi D.O.C.G.
After the second winery, free time is given to explore the beautiful narrow streets of San Gimignano on your own.
