Great selection of wines! First place taught us about a bunch of wine tips, but stay focused cause he talks fast and doesn’t repeat which wine he is talking about. The second place I was to far away so I wasn’t sure what I was drinking but didn’t care cause the view was beautiful.
My boyfriend and I had a great time seeing 2 wineries in Tuscany. We tried 5 wines, balsamic and 2 olive oils at the first winery and 3 wines at the second. The wineries were beautiful, tables under umbrellas setup within the vines, and the views were worthy. The wine pairings were plentiful and left us full by the end.
My husband signed us up on this last minute, (night before), and it was one of the best choices we made our entire trip. Jean Francois our guide was so friendly and knowledgeable about the area; we really enjoyed listening to his stories on the bus. Very sociable and fun for ALL ages! (Well maybe not kids) and great for couples, singles, and groups of friends!
