Our Florence Wine Tasting offers a unique variety of Italian Wines, specially selected by our Sommelier and matched by the most traditional foods of the Tuscan countryside!
Our Wine Tasting Tour takes place in an authentic, traditional Enoteca located in the heart of Florence and it’s led by the winner of the prestigious trophy “Best Sommelier 2014 FISAR”. His name is Livio and he’s a great wine teacher and expert. The wine bar where the tasting takes place is a historical place: open in the 19th century, it was originally an “Alimentari”, that’s a grocery store, specialized in the sale of the cod fish. But don’t worry, Livio will give you an introduction about the shop and its beginning.
Florence Wine Tasting is limited to small groups, so we guarantee a unique experience; in this way you are able to ask many questions or curiosities to your sommelier. Enjoy some of the many delicious tastes of the Tuscany region: have you ever put some jam on the cheese? In Tuscany we like to match the sweetness of the jam with the taste of the cheese, that could be pecorino (sheep) or caprino (goat) or parmigiano (from cow milk). You’ll learn how to prepare a delicious dish of cheeses and coldcuts in a quick and simple way!
Moreover, don’t forget about our greats extra virgin Olive oils!
The olive tree’s roots are inextricably entwined with the culinary history of the region and this fascinating tasting experience is a voyage of discovery through the palette of Tuscan olive oils. It’s incredible how the taste of the oil can change, depending on the soil, the climate, the exposure to the sun and, more important, the time of the olive harvest. The Tuscan olive oil is different from the others for its aggressive, herby and very strong flavor. Remember, don’t use the extra virgin olive oil for cooking, it’s a waste of a first-quality product!
