Florence Wine Tasting

Florence, Italy Wine Tasting Tour

Learn the culinary history of the Tuscany region from our own professional sommelier. You will taste three delicious Tuscan wines throughout this experience, along with two different olive oils, two local cheeses, and three traditional Italian meats.

Our expert sommelier will teach you not only about the wines, cheese, and charcuterie but he will also explain how to enjoy them as the locals do. This tasting takes place in an intimate setting at a respected Italian wine bar. With our small group size, you will be able to get to know our sommelier and ask questions along the way. The sommelier will guide you through a journey across the history of the Chianti region, the different varieties of grapes, and much more.

This experience is the perfect way to taste and discover Tuscany, like a local!  Plus, it's a great way to kick off your evening in Flornece.  We recommend joining this wine tasting as a precursor to your dinner.  Your sommelier and the wine bar staff can provide you with plenty of great restaurant recommendations to enjoy the rest of your evening in Florence.
