Educational and delicious!

This class provided excellent explanations and generous tastings of various Tuscan wines. We wish we could have bought some to take home, but we had only carry-on luggage with us on this trip. Manuel was an engaging and entertaining host. Thank you!
The Perfect Evening!

The absolute perfect evening! We learned so much about Tuscan Wines. Equal parts informative and so much fun! Can’t wait to do this again next time we visit Siena.

My boyfriend and I really enjoyed the educational component to this tour- it was set up like a little class room with a projector, map, and (like stationary) wine glasses and snacks! We felt we got a lot of useful information from our “teacher” and have a better understanding of selecting wine. The best part was our instructor was very generous with our pours and refills were encouraged!
Terrific class. Had a ton...

Terrific class. Had a ton of fun. So convenient being in the city walls. Drank, laughed and learned a great deal. Manuel was a terrific teacher and good natured person. No pressure sale. If you don’t know much about wine from Tuscany, want to learn and drink with a friendly group, this tour is for you.
Passionate about Tuscan wines.
Rick_M, Nov 2022
We had only two couples in this tour. One was from a combined food and wine tour and us, who were supposed to be just in the wine class. It was All Saints Day and things weere supposed to be winding down in Siena. Since there was only one couple in each tour our tour operator graciously added us to the food and wine tour. She was very knowledgable and passionate about the food and wines of Tuscany. It was a great experience. I would recommend this tour.
Great wine class

Wine class with Milo was great. Learned a lot about wines from Tuscany and the history behind them. Tasted some great local Tuscan wines. Highly recommend this class before you go on vineyard trips.

Milo was a great vibe, lots of large pours of wine. Could not recommend enough, a must do in Siena!!
Chianti adventure
Bernadette_G, Jul 2022
Milo took us on a journey through history, culture and taste sensations. The exploration of wine characteristics and categories was engaging and conducted with much laughter and fun. It was certainly an enjoyable couple of hours and I would highly recommend putting this adventure on your list.
Great class, great fun.

Excellent session, learnt so much and really enjoyed the wines. We went on our first day of our tour or Tuscany to set us up with all the knowledge we needed.
Great experience!
Maren_M, May 2022
We had a very fun and informative two hours at the wine class. The host was engaging and had tons of knowledge to share. The wines were excellent. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a great intro to Tuscan wines.

Georgia was an excellent host! Very generous pours - entertaining and informative discussion on the Tuscan wine region - a great value for the money!
Must do when in Siena!
Sophie_K, Sep 2021
Amazing experince. Every wine lover needs to do that when in Siena. Giorgia, our wine guide, was very friendly and an expert in wine tasting. She taught us how to taste wine properly and told us more about the regional wines from the Tuscany. The wine and the food was amazing. Highly reccomended!
Tuscan Wine Education

We so enjoyed our wine class with Nina. She was informative and entertaining. We came away with the knowledge to order wine not only based on price but year of production. Loved our two hours
Interessante e...

Interessante e divertente, qualità dei vini nella media. Non mi sembra ci sia un buon rapporto qualità-prezzo
