Private Tuscan Taste Track from Florence
Flavors and smells are memories that we will always bring with us. That’s what we offer, an unforgettable experience around the Tastes of Tuscany. Following our expert local guide off the beaten path of massive tourism, you will discover our local products.
We start the tour visiting a cheese farm, from the barn through all the steps of the production that will end up in our plate.
Something special will then follow, as we will be attending to a proper tasting of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. You will be introduced by an actual Producer to all the characteristics.
We know that there is no better way of enjoying the area if not going to visit an organic Winery... will be kindly hosted by a family that has been making wine for centuries in the Chianti Classico. We will walk around the property and the cellar to find out some of their secrets. The stunning view of cypresses, vines and olive groves will be then a perfect frame to our lunch based on typical products.
