Renaissance lunch and wine tasting in a Medici villa near Florence
Enjoy a piece of living history and culinary tradition in glorious Tuscan countryside setting in the immediate vicinity of Florence. This is a dream opportunity for foodies and history buffs to escape the bustle of the City Center for a few hours and appreciate the legendary Tuscan lifestyle!
The present owners of an authentic Medici villa will take you on an English-language guided tour of their home and grounds, entertaining you with fun anecdotes and informative behind-the-scenes facts about the villa's history and occupants.
After visiting the estate and learning about its renowned Chianti wines, award-winning olive oil and fresh produce, a full meal (lunch or dinner) will be served in the Renaissance kitchen or in the grand dining room of the villa, including guided tastings of the wines, oil, and delicious Vinsanto dessert wine produced on the premises.
If you wish to purchase the estate's wines and oil, the owners will be happy to arrange shipping to your home address.
