Wine & Cheese Tastings

...let your pallet linger over the richest Brunellos, earthy Chiantis,

and the noblest of Nobiles, all while you savor a tantalizing Pecorino…


The wine tastings are led by AIS sommelier, Dino Diacciati, who will use a variety of wines to help you discover the history and complexity of Tuscan winemaking traditions.  You will travel to small locally owned wineries where the tours include the history of local wines and their relationship to the Tuscan landscape and the Tuscan people, an explanation of wine-tasting techniques, and how to choose the correct wine to accompany different meals. 


The tour areas can be chosen upon request and include wines from the best vineyards of Nobile di Montepulciano, Brunello di Montalcino, Chianti Classico, Chianti Riserva, and some Super Tuscans.  In addition to tasting wine, each tasting includes a sampling of local food products.  All tours are full day and private, a personalized day out planned especially for you and your group.

(Offered all year round.)



A special treat of a stop for a Pecorino cheese tasting in town, or on the farm, may be added to this tour.

(Offered all year round.)


In Season (September/October)


This tour could also include a Grape Harvest Vendemmia  where you would learn the ancient techniques

and shear joy of harvesting grapes in a family environment.

(Offered in September-October depending upon availability.)
