Wednesday: Arrival in Tuscany, time to settle in and explore.
Thursday: Untours orientation session, followed by a local event and lunch, then a free afternoon.
May: Cooking with and eating wild herbs.
A short walk around one of our farmhouse properties to "hunt" for wild herbs, followed by an explanation, demonstration, and a meal using the herbs that have been gathered.
October: Truffle hunt and tasting.
Go on a hunt for truffles (weather permitting), and then enjoy the fruits of your labor (or someone else's if the weather doesn't permit).
Saturday: A cooking lesson with wine tasting.
You will gather at a typical Tuscan house in the countryside where you will work together with the cook to prepare a five-course Tuscan lunch that you will all share. Also a full wine tasting menu will accompany each of the courses.
Sunday: Time to explore on your own.
Monday: A winery tour and tasting.
This full-day tour will include visits to 3 intimate wineries, all producing the famed Brunello di Montalcino as well as Rosso di Montalcino and other local red wines. A stop for lunch in a typical Tuscan trattoria is also included.
Tuesday: Time to explore on your own.
Wednesday: Depart for home, or relax and stay another week.
