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!

I have so many things to say about grape harvest time in Tuscany. Now it is the turn of Sangiovese (Blood of Jupiter), the king of the grapes in Tuscany & all around Italy. The plants full of grapes with the ripe dark colour invite you to enjoy their beauty, their gorgeous full & intense colour in the amazing & breathtaking views of Montalcino, Montepulciano, Chianti. Guiding clients around Tuscan wineries I enjoyed & shared with them not only my passion & knowledge about wines, being I a Certified Sommelier in this beautiful region of Italy. We talked with workers about the land, the weather, the temperatures, the position of vineyards, the way of maceration & vinification, the aging & bottling, the entire process till it was time to enjoy their wines in several wine tastings. We were happy to see workers in the vineyards and in the  wine cellars working with a lot of attention, aware that their job is a big part of the whole important process of harvesting, selecting carefully by hand every single grape. Love the Wine, the food, the people, Tuscany, Italy and love to live & share with you great & memorable experiences around Tuscany in my private guided wine & food tours.
