If you are lucky enough to be visiting Tuscany at this magical time of year, then you are in for a treat. Out in the vineyards everyone is busy, and we have a chance to get involved.
We start with our fabulous, iconic cars, heading up a private road before heading towards Florence, stopping to view the city from above and peek into a 13th century church. We drive throug the city and back out to the countryside and the wine making adventure that awaits.
Whilst marveling at the stunning villa, Fabrizio the head wine maker appears. He proudly takes us out into the fields to inspect his rapidly ripening crop. We harvest grapes together, and head back to the presses and vats. In the pressing room we try the ancient technique of treading grapes and then see how the modern machines work. There is also an opportunity to taste the fermenting grape juice where the sugar is slowly turning to alcohol. We visit the ancient cellars with the wine maturing in oak barrels.
Having worked up an appetite we enjoy a picnic in the shade and a dip in the panoramic pool (bring your towel). There is a professionally led wine and olive oil tasting to accompany the meal.
