We ended up being the only ones on the tour, which was wonderful! Hillary was a fantastic guide. She is hilarious! She also taught us a lot about wine and Italy, both past and present. Francesca’s Tuscan villa was gorgeous, and the food was 5-star excellent. Choco sniffed out 3 truffles in short order! Everything we ate and drank was produced from things grown on the farm. After that we went to a winery, where Hillary taught us about tasting and choosing wines. We had generous samples of salami, prosciutto and pork belly with the wine. We were shown the cellar, where about 120 people were saved from theNazis in WW2 by hiding in wine barrels! Hillary gave us her recommendations for her favorite leather store, where we bought the highest quality leather jackets for half price, and her favorite gelato shop. It was an absolutely delightful day, which we highly recommend!
