My wife and I found the experience to be quite informative. Sarah did a great job provide insight into the different types of wines produced throughout the region, what to look out for in terms of taste, color and smell, as well as some interesting history. We loved the story about the black rooster!

Our professori, Sarah, was outstanding, giving us a well rounded review of Tuscan wines. We particularly enjoyed the legend of the Black Rooster. The wines served were well thought out and illustrated the points of the lecture very nicely.

This tour was the highlight of our visit to Tuscany...if not Italy. After days of churches and museums...it was a treat to taste our tour. The meats, cheeses and sweets were just what was called for on a beautiful day trip to Siena from Florence. The school was easy to find...Sarah was FANTASTIC (not only about the fabulous foods of...

We had a fabulous time in a all group setting. We learned a ton and appreciated the generous pours of some really great regional wine.

This tour was a spur-of-the-moment decision that I made as the designated 'tour guide' for the trip my girlfriend and I took to Italy in mid-October of 2014. I stumbled across a mention of the Tuscan Wine School in, where else, a Rick Steves' guidebook, and decided if it made the book, it must be good. We were both incredibly... More

Sarah's walking foodie tour of Siena ("Taste of Siena") taught us how to be discriminating when choosing local foods and wine, including gelato and espresso. Not only was she a delightful, engaging and enthusiastic guide, but we learned valuable skills that helped us to enjoy the rest of our trip to its fullest. We became determined from then forward to... More

My husband and I fisted the Tuscan wine school in Siena. Sarah was an incredible teacher/guide. We had a great time and learned so much that we were able to use during the rest of our trip. I would highly recommend the school to anyone travelling to Tuscany.

My wife and I had an incredible time on the Siena Food Tour from the Tuscan Wine School. Sarah was an incredible guide with a wealth of knowledge. It was a great way to take a quick tour Siena while trying some of the best food, wine, coffee and treats. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting Siena.

This was a great class. We learned a lot about Italian wine. How to taste and what to look for when buying wine . We enjoyed every minute and have used our new skills buying wine back home in US. We recomend the Tuscan Wine School in Sienna.

We lucked out and got a private lesson in Tuscan wines from Sofia. It was the last day of the season before they closed up for winter. The class is very entertaining and enlightening. I feel much more versed in Tuscan wines (granted I was a beginner). The wines were delicious as were the cheese and olive oil samples. Sofia... More
