cooking lesson at Cook & Dine with Rita Tuscan Style, was a definite highlight!” – Review comment October 2016






The region is responsible for producing some of the most reputable wines on the planet. And for many, it’s almost impossible to hear mention of Tuscany without picturing its rolling hills covered in grape vines. It’s fitting that a country so prominent in the history of viticulture would have a rich history itself.

Taste the best wine and food that the area has to offer.

“Simones tours to San Gimigiano and the Chianti region were excellent. The wine tasting lunch at Sant’ Appianio Winery was the best I’ve ever had. We really enjoyed Simone as a driver and loved all the information and local stories he could tell us. His English was excellent and he was very helpful in teaching us Italian ” Jane from Canada, May 2018
