A taste of Tuscany!

Private group tasting

During the soft lockdown in Italy I have started something new: an online wine tasting with three different Tuscan wines!

Let me, as an Italian sommelier, guide you through the tasting. From my home town Montepulciano I will tell you everything about the winery Gattavecchi and the wines of il Convento while we enjoy a good glass of wine.

Gattavecchi

Gattavecchi is an important winery in Montepulciano. A Tuscan winemaker family for over 80 years.

With the fourth generation Luca, Daniela and Gionata Gattavecchi greater focus is placed on making quality wines, good positioning in the international market and running a family restaurant.

The name “il Convento” refers to the former monastery of the Santa Maria dei Servi church. The monastery was built in the 13th century by the “Padri Serviti” who have lived here until the 19th century.

The Gattavecchi family bought the monastery in 1958. The underground wine cave is perfect for aging the prestigious Vino Nobile wine.

Il Convento is a line of wines from the winery Gattavecchi in Montepulciano.

I am agent for this winery and I will be happy to share my knowledge of Tuscan wines with you!

How to join the online wine tasting?

The online wine tasting is great fun for wine lovers of all levels! To participate you need three bottles of wine that will be delivered to your home.

I will show some videos and slides and tell you all about the winery. While tasting the wines I will describe the characteristics and tell you the history of the famous Vino Nobile di Montepulciano DOCG.

I use the Zoom application, for which you will receive a link per email. The live stream is in English and lasts approximately 1,5 hour.

In the times of a pandemic, when you cannot fly out to experience new cities, a virtual wine tour with Sylvia is what I needed. Her knowledge on the wine and history, her story telling and live videos of Montepulciano made me feel, like I was in Italy for a brief moment. Loved it! Thank you, Sylvia!
