Wine tasting with sommelier
I invite you to taste and learn about our wines and local food during your visit in Tuscany. Being a qualified sommelier and a local expert in fine wines I host tastings and wine and food pairings in Montepulciano up to 10 people.
I speak Italian, English and Dutch (mother tongue) fluently. I am personable, full of information and truly want everyone to have a great experience.
Wine and Food experience
We will meet in Montepulciano at the Piazza Grande where I will tell you about the story of the famous wine Vino Nobile di Montepulciano.
Vino Nobile di Montepulciano
The wine Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is one of Italy’s most prestigious wines. It was the first DOCG wine appear on the Italian market. It is a red elegant balanced wine made primarily from the Sangiovese variety “Prugnolo Gentile”.
Wine and Food pairing
The Tuscan cuisine is led by the idea of simplicity. Vino Nobile di Montepulciano pairs perfectly with the local meats, cheeses and pastas. Pair any of the traditional dishes with a glass of Montepulciano’s own Vino Nobile for an extraordinary dining experience!
After our talk about the local wines we will walk to one of the most important wineries of Montepulciano.
This beautiful wine cellar is found under a church which belonged to a 14th century monastery “Convento dei Padri Serviti”.
We will visit the underground caves where the wine ages in oak barrels. When walking through the wine caves we’ll discover a wonderful treasure of an ancient Etruscan Tomb.
The visit to the caves will be followed by a wine tasting and lunch – dinner at the restaurant.
