I love Siena, Tuscany with all its beautiful arts, history, architecture, wine & food.

Last week I visited the Wine & Siena show and happened to taste lots of excellent wines from all Italian wine regions, plus some French Champagne and lovely Italian artisanal beers in this town that I define the wine Capital of Italy.

As a Professional Sommelier for me it was a great chance to taste the 2013 vintage of Brunello di Montalcino not yet released, and a wide variety of Chianti Classico & Riserva, Nobile di Montepulciano & Riserva, Cortona Syrah, IGT Supertuscans, Bolgheri, Amarone, Barolo, Barbaresco, Montepulciano D’Abruzzo, Lagrein, Riesling etc.

These wine events are very useful for me to select more varieties of wines for my private wine classes & tastings in villas, and to identify the best wines for wedding receptions I coordinate – to pair them to the menu as official wedding Sommelier. This comes handy also for my private wine & food tours in Tuscany and Umbria, as I always hunt for scenic and boutique-style cellars, extraordinary wines, delicious organic food to give clients a memorable tasting adventure with me in Italy.

If you plan to visit Italy and want to live a unique experience in Tuscany & Umbria, book one of my bespoke wine & food tours with Professional Sommelier, or arrange a private wine tasting and a special dinner with Sommelier at the villa you are staying at. Don’t wait any longer! I’d love to hear your ideas and make your vacation in Tuscany memorable! Email me at tuscanywinefoodadventures@gmail.com

I love my job, conducting my private wine, cheese, olive oil tours, dedicated wine classes & tastings in villas and also adore to coordinate wedding services all around Tuscany & Umbria.

My passion & knowledge of wine & food being a Professional Sommelier AIS gives me the chance to know more people, try new wines and get to know new wine estates, beautiful villas and scenic wedding venues in Tuscany, Italy.

Visiting Montalcino, Montepulciano, Chianti, Cortona, San Gimignano in Tuscany and Montefalco, Torgiano in Umbria and a lot of other places we learn more, tasting a big variety of fabulous wines like Brunello, Nobile, Syrah, Chianti Classico, Vernaccia, Sagrantino and Rosso Torgiano that are some of the wonderful products these regions of Italy offer.  My bespoke cheese and olive oil tastings, cheese making classes, private beef tours in farms with the famous Chianina beef are some of the memorable experiences you can live if you decide to book my custom-made tours living  once in a life time adventures.

In life we always look for good friends, great wines and wonderful food to live and share unforgettable moments, and trust me Tuscany is the best place on earth to find all these important things.

Visit Tuscany, enjoy wines and food, admire the unique landscape with its distinctive colours!

What a great year I left behind with my Tuscany wine & food tours, private tastings in villas, wedding coordination, aperitifs and private Sommelier services in luxury villas.

I loved sharing lots of adventures, accompanying clients in several wine regions of central Italy like Tuscany & Umbria. It was so nice to see people from the United States tasting for their first time wines like Sagrantino di Montefalco in Umbria, very rich in tannins, flavor and alcohol.

I loved guiding my clients around Montalcino, the homeland of the famous Brunellos that everyone knows and loves, going through old and new wineries, traditions, vinification – especially selected for my private wine tours because for their uniqueness, wide choice of wines, scenic vineyards, beautiful cellars, friendly staff that always accommodated my special requests with joy thanks to the great collaboration we established.

My clients were SO happy to visit with me Chianti and Montepulciano, tasting their excellent Chianti Classico and elegant Vino Nobile, always being poured more than what is normally included, fully enjoying the wine experience. And others loved to discover in Cortona not only delicious extra-virgin olive oil and fabulous pecorino cheese in oil mills and family-run cheese farms, but also to savour Cortona’s big Syrah wines in a beautiful cellar – again living a wonderful wine & food adventure with me.

Most of them are already planning new trips this year, I can’t wait to welcome them and new clients too here in Tuscany and guide them through new wines and tastes of this beautiful country!
