With Taste of Italy Tours, we begin with a visit to the charming town of Cortona. This history filled town is so inspiring that Hollywood movies and authors alike set stories here. (Have you seen “La Vita e’ Bella” or “Under the Tuscan Sun”?) Nearby is the serene Lake Trasimeno where we will stop for lunch at a rustic, artisanal restaurant. Get ready to experience the elevated flavours that these chefs infuse into their dishes.
After a hearty lunch reserved by Taste of Italy Tours, we will drive through the Chianti Region, which you might recognize for the name of the wine produced there. In the nearby small town of Montepulciano they create a world renown red wine called “Vino Nobile.”
Taste of Italy Tours are given exclusive access into one of the oldest wine cellars which is carved out of rock to regulate the cool temperatures needed. Hopefully the wine-makers will share a few of their secrets while we taste their final product.
Combine all the best Italy has to offer with this special food and wine experience in Italy’s countryside.
