The wines & foods of Tuscany are important not just for private tours in wineries and farms but also for weddings, banquets, anniversaries and all sorts of family and corporate events celebrated in and around Florence, Siena, Montalcino, Chianti, Montepulciano, Cortona, San Gimignano and elsewhe in Tuscany. At times I am involved in menu tasting for wedding dinners of international couples, to find the best wine and food pairing together with them. It is a great chance for me to share my knowledge about wine & food combinations and suggest for every dish the perfect wine pairing. It often seems not important, but for those who really want to enjoy their special day in Tuscany with great food and delicious wines IT IS A MUST. Starting from the aperitif with nice and infinite bubbles of a fresh and nice Prosecco and white wines of Tuscany enjoyed with Parmesan, fried battered vegetables, caprese salad with succulent mozzarella and fresh tomato, bruschetta with different Tuscan sauces, pecorino cheese, prosciutto, salami and a lot of cold and hot appetizers. A pleasure too is to identify the perfect pairing of fresh pasta with vegetables: what about a great mineral white wine? Or fresh pasta with meat sauce paired with … a great Chianti! All these are useful tips I am glad to share with couples and other private clients. Do not forget to find the right wine pairing to main course and dessert, mostly with divine red wines of Tuscany and enjoyable bubbly wines – do you agree? I am happy to offer my experience in this wine & food pairing adventure with clients that have never been in Italy before, and with those who have been and want to know and learn more about Italian and especially Tuscan cuisine and its wide and amazing variety of wines. A few days ago I had the immense pleasure to taste the complete wedding menu of a UK couple, and to decide together the dishes and wines for their BIG day in Tuscany. At the end of the day the choice of wines came from the bride ! I am happy I was part of this special tasting day and helped come to great decisions. It is my job, my passion, my pleasure, my goal to participate in these important and memorable moments of your lives.
