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!

Cortona, Tuscany, is the land of sun. Situated on a beautiful hill 500 meter high it is an Etruscan city with a great history, amazing views of Val di Chiana and high quality wines to discover. It is easy to arrive in Cortona because it has a great strategic position near the Milan-Rome highway, near the freeway to Perugia, Assisi and Siena, only a half hour away from Montepulciano and Pienza and one hour from Florence. Through one of my private wine & food tours you can taste the variety of Syrah, famous DOC of Cortona and other red IGT wines of the area including fresh white wines too, a genuine taste of the Famous Chianina beef and family-run oil mills for olive oil tastings.
You will enjoy wine tastings, olive oil tastings, cooking classes, lunches & dinners in small and famous restaurants eating typical dishes among which those made with fresh porcini mushrooms and chestnuts of the territory. All this, together with the charming beauty of this hill town, will make you live a memorable adventure in Tuscany, Italy. With my private tours you get the chance to visit and touch the reality of small wineries of the area, big & small farms of the most famous breed of Tuscan beef called Chianina, and live the experience of visiting, tasting, enjoying and touching the authenticity of the life here with the people who love to make and show you their genuine productions. I will  arrange the best tours in the city known to many for being the set of US movie Under The Tuscan Sun, merging in a warm and unique atmosphere of times long past, and living an unforgettable vacation in this ancient and beautiful small town, so big in history. Walking through the small windy roads filled with shops, coffee bars & restaurants, step by step you will take in the charming history of this city where time seems to stop, and you won’t want to leave.
Come visit, don’t miss the chance of a trip to Cortona in Tuscany, and go with me on my private wine & food tours, it is a must while you are in Italy.
