Fine Wine & Food tour for ‘Lichtjes voor Sophia’

The ‘Stichting Vrienden van het Sophia’ asked me to make a ‘Fine Wine & Food tour in Tuscany’ available for their charity auction. They do research into children’s deseases. Of course I said yes, feeling proud to be picked out to contribute to this beautiful event. They organize a Sophia Lichtjesdiner and charity auction at the Laurenskerk in Rotterdam. The tour contains: 4 nights in hotel Lupaia in Torrita di Siena, a lunch and wine tasting in Montepulciano with winemaker Luca, a wine tasting in Montalcino, a visit to the Chianina cow farm in Foiano della Chiana. Running with wine barrels (a local tradition) and a visit to the weekly market are also part of the program. In short: this is a trip involving lots of delicious wines, food and unique experiences! On top of that, this wine tour being up for auction will help the foundation to fund their research and innovative projects.

Amazing Experience

An amazing experience from start to finish. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this experience. Sylvia is welcoming and knowledgeable and above all, a fantastic and friendly guide. This made our trip! ~ Alex (UK)

Yoyfull

It was a nice tour. We really enjoyed the lunch and we had a lovely time with the other group members. The wine was very good and made us all very joyfull. Sylvia did an excellent job in choosing the restaurant and she acted like a very good host. ~ Anda (Romania)

Honeymoon highlight

This was the highlight of our honeymoon! It ended up just being myself and my husband on the tour, as the rest of our group didn’t show up. Sylvia and the team at Gattavecchi went above and beyond for us to make the day special. Also, Montepulciano is just breathtaking. If you are debating on stopping here, DO IT! We 110% recommend! Thank you Sylvia! ~ Sara (Calgary)
