Best wine tasting in Florence

If you are in Florence this is a must do. Vittorio was so knowledgable and passionate about Tuscan wines. I would recommend this to anyone with an interest in wine.

My mom and I were looking for wine tasting course while we were in Florence and we were a little nervous because there seemed to be so many out there and we really had no idea who was actually good and who was just looking to make a quick buck by preying on tourists. After searching online and reading through... More

Vittorio was very knowledgeable and easily answered all of our questions - even the stupid ones!

I can't recommend this wine experience enough. This was a great way to spend 2 hrs learning a lot about Tuscan wines. Vittorio is more than happy to share his knowledge with others depending upon the level of their wine understanding. This course met all my expectations

If you are looking for a wine tasting course for your trip in Florence, look no further. My girlfriend and I took the course while in the beautiful city and our whole appreciation for wine went from what we thought was significant to truly captivating. Vittorio was very knowledgeable and was as far from your average "wine snob" as you... More
