“Our highlight of Florence!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

We took the 2 hour Tuscan Wine Class, and we LOVED it! Maurizio taught us so much, and he was SO much fun! We had the time of our lives! We wish we would have done a longer class with him! We were so lucky to be the only two people in class that day! We totally lucked out! We'll be back!

“Walk in - fly out!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

This was a fab experience. We had been out all day walking and viewing Florence so it was nice to sit down for a couple of hours and drink wine and talk about lots of winde related stuff. Maurico was extremely passionate about his subject and his English is extremely good. The wines were all excellent. You should really consider doing this if you like wine and you are in Florence.

“Fabulous!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

My husband and I took the two hour Tuscan Classics tour with Maurizio. It was a fabulous way to spend two hours to learn about and taste wines of Tuscany. Maurizio is not only extremely knowledgable, he is entertaining and passionate as well! We had such a great experience at the wine tasting that we booked our winery tour through Maurizio....which was also fabulous. If you are interested in wine...this is a "must do" while you are in Florence!

“Great experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

What a great way to end a day in Florence. Great location! We took the 2 hour tuscan wines class with Maurizio. He is a great teacher and being a sommelier, is very knowledgeable. The selection of wines choosen for us to taste was representative of Tuscany. All of our questions, and more, were answered. We were able to compare and appreciate different wines and learn about their characteristics. Different courses are offered to address various needs, even a day trip in Tuscany. Even if we are quite familiar with italian wines, we still learned a lot. The price is very reasonable and they offer classes every day of the week.

“Fun, Informative, and Memorable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013 via mobile

Whether you start your trip to Tuscany with a stop at Tuscan Wine School or end it with a class, don't miss this. My wife and I were the only students in Maurizio's (the owner) class we attended. And, it was a ball. Our two hours flew by as Maurizio taught us the basics of Tuscan wines. We tasted a handful of great wines from the region, and Maurizio dispelled several myths about wine in general and wines from this region of Italy. We have never met anyone so passionate about wine and so knowledgeable. Maurizio could gear this class to the most novice wine lovers or the the most experienced. He knows it all and loves sharing it. Every question we asked, no matter how silly, was treated seriously. We learned a ton and enjoyed the wine. Worth every penny. Can't wait to put all of this new knowledge to work.
