Tuscany Wine Tour & Cuisine

Heaven means different things to different people.
To us, it’s spending time with good friends or family, eating incredible home cooked cuisine,
drinking fine wines and spending time at the spa and enjoying a historical culture.
Tuscany, Italy is our Heaven on Earth!

Italy's Heartland

Tuscany is a wealth of historic treasures widely considered the gold standard for art, food and wine. The region is full of picturesque villages nestled in rustic hills, protected parks and steeped in cultural heritage. Enjoy it's culinary delights with simple, authentic flavors, and its wines, ranked among the best in the world. There is truly no other place on earth like Tuscany – especially during the fall harvest season.

The Joy of Wine

Your tour of Italy's wine country will be led by our European-trained Sommelier, Taylor Johnson. She will share with you her passion for the local terroir, as you get to experience its fruits right at the source! Tour vineyards and enjoy gourmet meals with expertly selected wine varietals. You'll learn firsthand the role of wine in Italian life, and see how it has shaped their culture and brought people together through the centuries.

Gourmet Local Cuisine

Your week in Tuscany will forever shape the way you look at health and wellness. With its focus on fresh, healthy food, Italy ranks 6th on the list of countries with the longest life expectancy. You will not only learn to make regional Italian dishes taught by our in-house private chef, but also understand the traditions and food culture of Tuscany. Taylor will introduce you to wine pairings that will bring out the best local flavors.

Our Fairytale Escape

Our idyllic getaway for the week is Villa Germagnana. This old farmhouse, set amidst the rolling hills of Tuscany, is located within the protected nature reserve of the same name and enjoys a sublime panorama over the medieval villages of San Miniato and Montopoli Val d'Arno. Artfully restored to reflect its proud heritage, the picturesque 11th century lookout tower, still intact, keeps watch like a sentinel over the privacy of this property.

Restoration in Nature

The Villa, surrounded by lush lawns, the scent of flowers and herbs, a swimming pool with its soft colors typical of the local tufa rocks, allow you to ponder the moment relaxing with a glass of wine. It’s a true sanctuary like nowhere else on earth. In addition to our wine and culinary tour, we offer ample opportunity for you to explore the beautiful countryside of Tuscany, through hiking, E-Biking, beach walks, touring local villages, and more.
