- Day trip to Tuscany where you’ll taste renowned wines Chianti Classico, Brunello and the famous DOCG Vernaccia white wine.
- Visit family owned wineries located in some of Tuscany’s most scenic vineyards. Fall in love with the olive groves and vineyards of Montefalco.
- Tour a truffle farm and enjoy truffle cooking demonstrations at Umbria. Sample white Orvieto wine or red Torgano, two of the region’s most famous wines.
- Indulge in some serious wine tasting at Piedmont, one of Italy’s greatest wine regions and explore the rich and complex flavours of wines typical to this region.
- Consider travelling in spring when winemakers are relaxed and the vines are really green.
- Expect to tour two to three wineries in a day with each visit lasting up to three hours.
- The staffs at wineries are excellent resources for technical information so don’t hesitate to ask appropriate questions.
- Expect a lot of walking and standing so wear supportive footwear with a sturdy sole.
- If possible, view the wine’s clarity and colour by holding the glass against a white background.
- Don’t forget to swirl the wine before you take a sip as it allows oxygen to enter the wine, enhancing aromas and richness.
- You can either swallow the wine or spit it out into the dump bucket provided.
- You can judge a wine’s weight and age by tilting the glass and allowing the wine to flow to the rim. A rusty, brick or orange colour at the thinned out portion would indicate that the red wine is well aged.
