“"Life is Grape in Tuscany"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

“LIFE IS GRAPE In Tuscany” is a favorite phrase of the wine educators at the Tuscan Wine School. As a “wine guy” from Tucson, AZ….I was excited to attend their “Tuscan Classics” - a 2 hr. tasting of some of the important wines in Tuscany and it was fantastic….I learned so much, tasted some amazing wines from high end winemakers and strongly recommend this experience to anyone who wants to learn more about Tuscan wines….Our teacher, Rebecca Wine (yes that is her name) gave an animated presentation about 6 major grapes varieties and helped nurture our love of Tuscany wines. Rebecca exudes the sophistication of a Brunello…the warmth of a Chianti Classico Riserva... the vitality of a Super Tuscan and the sweetness of a Vin Santo. It was like having a personal Sommelier bring you special wines from amazing vineyards which you could not otherwise find. DO NOT MISS this or any other of the wine classes or wine tours arranged by the Tucson Wine School.

“Tuscan Wine Time-Half Day Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

What a great day trip into the Chianti Classico region! The classroom portion with Maurizio was terrific; he's knowledgeable and funny. The tour itself, led by Rebecca, was full of interesting facts about not only the wine country, but of Firenze, in general. The winery was lovely; the tour well done; and the lunch was delicious...great time; great new friends!

“A wonderful chance to taste Tuscany”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

I just finished the Tuscan Wine Lover's course and I cannot believe all that I was able to learn in one week. Rebecca and Pierre were so patient, approachable, informative, and enthusiastic that it was impossible not to leave without a deeper knowledge and renewed appreciation of Tuscan wines. I especially enjoyed learning about the subtle ways that the winemakers can add their own fingerprints to their wines. In this area of Italy that is so supportive of artigiani, I found that winemaking was just as much an art and creative expression! It was such an enjoyable week!

“What a hoot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

I had such a great time and learned so much on the week long course. Every day were new wines and new laughs. So much information and lovely teachers who are so passionate about wines. Coming from Australia i need a wine's flavour to hit me in the head like a brick so it was great to develop an appreciation for the more subtle, elegant styles here in Italy. Thanks Rebecca and Pierre
