Tuscany Food & Wine Trips


Food and wine lovers, this is your special trip! Join us for a week-long vacation in the heart of Super Tuscan wine country, on the Mediterranean coast of Tuscany.

You’ll cook authentic Italian recipes in my farmhouse, discover centuries-old villages, eat like a local in my favorite restaurants, meet our beloved winemakers, tour stunning vineyards and taste some world famous Bolgheri DOC wines.

Based on the same itinerary, we offer two different experiences.

Including 3 cooking classes and 3 wine tastings, our Cooking Vacation is designed for lovers of home-cooking. With a focus on hands-on cooking in my kitchen, you’ll learn how to make fresh pasta and many other dishes from my Italian heritage, paired with amazing Bolgheri wines.

Including 6 wine tastings and 1 cooking class, our Food & Wine Trip is a great holiday for people passionate about wine. Throughout the week, we’ll tour world-class vineyards and cellars, meet the producers, learn about the prestigious Bolgheri DOC region and enjoy superb wines paired with traditional recipes from Tuscan cuisine.

Your home for the week will be a charming villa overlooking the Mediterranean, with a stunning view on sloping coastal vineyards stretching to the sea.

With over 20 years experience in hosting guests from all over the world and living my daily life in Tuscany, I’ll guide you every day to discover the culture of Bolgheri region through its food, wine and people.
Together, we’ll celebrate the best of Tuscany!
