We did the 2 hour Tuscan Wine class and it was the highlight of our day in Siena. Sarah was a very interesting and insightful teacher and the wines we tasted were awesome. It was very interesting to learn about the classification system in Italy and details about the different growing regions in Tuscany. Highly recommended!

We had a good time. Sarah was wonderful. We got to experience cute food places we wouldn't have seen otherwise at the food tour and got a little tipsy in the wine class. Tasting the honey selection is interesting. And the balsamic is like candy, soooo good!

The Tuscan Wine School was one of my favorite experiences from my two weeks in Italy! We had a very knowledgeable and friendly teacher named Sarah. No one had signed up for the class the day we stopped by so she led the class of just three of us anyways. We tried some delicious wine and olive oil while learning... More

Our group of 5 had a great time at Wine School. We left having learned some new things and tasting some wonderful wines! Time and money well spent, we all agreed.

in order to live the city of Sienna one must eat and flavor the wine of the region. This tour was phenomenal and the tour guide was very knowledgable on the subject of wines, she was not given a speech to memorize but actually understood many subjects of food and wine. A Must DO activity
