Sample itinerary (please remember
that the tours are customized and will be planned uniquely for you when you
book the tour and may change according to availability with our
collaborators): We will start
thirsty from your accommodation in the morning.
On our way we'll introduce you to the region and its history.
This area is very lush and will give you some of the best views of the
rolling hills that Tuscany is known for. Our first stop will be at a
chocolate maker where we will have a tasting of artisan chocolate.
Then we will head to an old
Enoteca in the village of Colle di Val d'Elsa for a
tasting of olive oils and vinegars and talk all about what makes the Tuscan
olive oil so unique and wonderful.
will then pay a quick visit to the town of San Gimignano
where we will taste
and there will be a little
free time to visit the village for sight seeing or shopping.
will be in a family owned
saffron farm. A
typical Tuscan lunch with fresh produce from the garden will be served. In
addition it will be possible to taste the renowned Saffron of San Gimignano
DOP and to understand the characteristics of this world renowned saffron.
Then it will be
time for a tour and tasting in a wonderful little
organic winery within the Vernaccia di San
Gimignano region. We will do a tasting of a regular Vernaccia di San
Gimignano, a Riserva of Vernaccia and couple of reds
typical of the region.
We'll return home with full
bellies, a happy heart and great memories in
time for dinner.
NB. Wine will be served throughout the day :) And
if you would rather go to 2 wineries than doing the food stops, we're happy
to do that, too. Just let us know!
