Carmignano tour - details

Itinerary


Carmignano is the name of Tuscany’s smallest and possibly oldest wine regions. The Medici family set its footprint in the region building several majestic Renaissance villas and allegedly introduced Cabernet. On our trip, the first family-owned winery is biodynamic and makes delectable wines. We’ll learn about organic viticulture and hear stories about the local traditions. The second family-owned winery is the largest of the region, yet still organic and makes many different wines. We’ll have a tasty wine-pairing lunch. Then we’ll visit the impressive historical cellars and learn about Vin Santo. The olive press is also super interesting to understand how great olive oil is made in Tuscany. Finally, we’ll stop at the majestic Poggio a Caiano Medici villa for a stroll around the gardens.
