Your host Sylvia

The world of wine is all about passion, history, culture and food pairing. As a sommelier it gives me pleasure to be able to share my knowledge of wine with other people.

I speak Italian, English, German and Dutch. Furthermore I have a lot of information for you and truly want everyone to have a great experience.

Wine tour

Meeting point is the Piazza Grande where I start telling you about the story of the wine Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. Meanwhile I show you some of the symbols of Florence’s authority through art and architecture.

After the introduction and information about Montepulciano we walk to the winery.

Winery

Historical winery

Today the historical winery is beautifully renovated. The restaurant’s terrace offers a great view of the Tuscan landscape and San Biagio church.

Tuscany landscape

This beautiful wine cellar is found under a church which belonged to the 12th century monastery “Convento dei Padri Serviti”.

The wine cellar is filled with Slavonian oak barrels used  for the aging of the wine up to two years. The temperature is stable and the humidity is optimal. It is a perfect location for storage and aging of wine.
