As a sommelier it is my job as well to create an enjoyable atmosphere. I want everybody to have the best experience in Italy ever.

With Covid traveling to wineries isn’t an option; however, doing a virtual wine tasting with Sylvia is the next best thing! Everything was fantastic. My office set up a wine tasting trying two proseccos, a pinot grigio and colli di conegliano by Toffoli.

The wine maker Sante was a great addition to this tasting and provided a ton of information from the area that the winery is in to the whole wine making process for their wines. This was the fourth wine tasting that I have done with Sylvia and would suggest to anyone else looking for something to do while travel is not an option to set up a virtual tasting.



Sylvia heeft een hele leuke en informatieve wijnproeverij verzorgd. Ze heeft uitgebreid het centrum van Montepulciano laten zien, erg leuk. Ontzettend zin om er naar toe te gaan. Daarna een presentatie met tussendoor het proeven van de verschillende wijnen. Ontzettend leuk om te zien hoe het er bij hen aan toe gaat. Sylvia heeft alle tijd genomen, waarvoor onze dank.
En natuurlijk niet te vergeten; de wijnen zijn verrukkelijk.

One of our favourites is the Toffoli prosecco. We have ordered several boxes already and I must say its one of the best prosecco’s I have ever tasted, absolutely very high quality.

Going to order another box today, together with a box of the Convento rose. Haven’t tasted the rose yet but I am sure that it will be as good as the other Convento wines.




Loved our wine tasting with Sylvia on Christmas Eve. Can’t wait to experience it in person!

We participated in this tasting for a friend’s birthday during Covid and it was amazing! Sylvia was so informative and kind!

We thoroughly enjoyed our tasting experience with Sylvia. In a time where physical travel is not possible this provided an innovative, inventive and well thought out alternative. The experience was informative, interesting, fun and interactive. As a host Sylvia is welcoming, friendly, passionate and knowledgeable – everything you would want in a guide! Highly recommend the experience for wine enthusiasts and newbies alike!

We hebben op een leuke informele manier beeld gekregen van Montepulciano, het wijnhuis en de wijn Vino Nobile! Leuk en lekker!

I was invited to Sylvia’s “Virtual Noble Wine Tasting Experience” and was blown away by the experience and the wines. Both were so good that I ended up planning another Virtual Experience with 18 of my coworkers! In a COVID environment, it was exactly what we needed to enjoy time “together”.

Sylvia begins at the winery, introduces the wine maker and shows us the cellar in which the barrels sit. Then she walks us through the town of Montepulciano stopping at incredibly historic sites and absolutely breathtaking views of the Tuscan country side. Following the tour, we began the tasting which was so informative and exciting. She projected a power point with background information on the climate, soil, grapes, meal parings, etc.

I can’t say enough good things about Sylvia. She was incredibly responsive and easy to work with. She’s so friendly and speaks excellent English.

I ended up buying multiple cases of each wine I tried (4 wines total). She really brought us to Tuscany through our computers and I can’t wait to visit in person!

Thank you so much, Sylvia!!!



What a wonderful experience! Though we cannot travel right now due to COVID-19, we felt like we were in the middle of Montepulciano for a couple hours during our virtual tour with Sylvia. Every part of it was exceptional — the wines being shipped to our door ahead of time, the walk through the historic city center of Montepulciano, and, of course, the wine tasting with Sylvia as our guide. We learned so much and would recommend this experience to anyone out there who wants to taste and experience Tuscany for a couple hours.
