My husband and I just returned from a 10 day trip to Italy, and we both agree that this was the highlight of our trip. Donatella was a fantastic tour guide who is very knowledgable about the area and wine. We learned so much about Chianti Classico wine and how it's made.
We went to 3 wineries during tour, one mid-size winery and two smaller wineries. It was a fun experience getting tours of the wineries and doing the tastings with the actual owners of the wineries. We also tasted olive oil, balsamic vinager, cheese, and truffle oil at the wineries. Everything that we tasted was wonderful.
While the entire day was fun, the best part was when Donatella took us to eat lunch at her friend's house in a 1,000 year old Tuscan farmhouse. Getting to eat lunch with an Italian family and converse with them about life in Tuscany was the highlight of our trip. The food that her friend made was AMAZING. Lasagna, turkey roast, salad, homemade wine, and tiramisu. We left stuffed! The family even gave us the recipes so we could make the food we ate, at home.
I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Tuscany. You won't regret it! It was worth every penny.
