Enjoy a full day tour to Tuscany and learn about Tuscany’s wine and the art of Italian pasta making. Led by a professional chef, try your hand at preparing a pasta dish from scratch. Afterwards eat and sample some of the best Tuscan wines.
Your English speaking tour driver will pick you up at 8.00am at your hotel or any other place of your convenience in Rome and drive to Tuscany via the motorway A1 or Autostrada del Sole (“Motorway of the Sun”). You have a lovely drive by passing some unique landscapes, enchanted hills and medieval villages to reach the region of Tuscany
Our first Tuscany wine tasting will be late morning. On arrival at the winery we begin with a guided tour of the ancient cellars. We then proceed with a sit down tasting of the estate’s highly rated wines, plus their genuine olive oil.
After we will take a 15 minutes drive to reach an estate where you are going to meet your chef “Boris”. Your cooking class starts with an introduction to handmade pasta, where you’ll learn the art of pasta-making, and how to create the proper sauces for each different pasta shape. Next up will be a meat dish like boar or veal cutlets. To finish, you will learn how to make a delicious typical Florentine dessert such as cantucci or tiramisu.
At the end of your meal, your driver will be waiting for you for a relaxing drive back to Rome.
