Pierre Luigi (owner of Tenuta Torciano) met our group and gave us a private talk and wine tasting experience that we will be talking about for years to come. It was a 10 course tasting experience that we started at 10:30 AM including a course of olive oil, balsamic, cheeses and then 7 wines. He did a great job educating... More

Thank you Pierluigi! This was a fun and entertaining morning. Learning how to correctly taste wine was interesting to say the least. I believe most in our group enjoyed this tasting and snacking and even a little educating.

We had a private room, and Ida would make sure we were tasting the wines with our foods. There were many fine wines, but we also loved the truffle oil and balsamic vinegar. Everything... More
