The Slow Day in Tuscany was one of the best days my husband and I have ever spent! We LOVED every minute of it. Simon was the perfect host -- knowledgeable and fun! He knew the area well and we enjoyed getting to know him. We were on the tour with two other people and we all had so much fun that I feel we'll be lifelong friends! The weather in Tuscany was perfect to experience the countryside and enjoy the views. When we arrived at the vineyard, Fernando and family were harvesting olives for their olive oil. We were then able to taste some of the oil as part of our wine-tasting. The wine tasting was perfect -- the meats, olive oil, wines and homemade biscotti were all superb!!! Fernando was a perfect host as well. After touring the spectacular town of Montefioralle, we ate lunch in Graeve-in-Chianti. It was one of the most excellent, enjoyable meals we've ever experienced. The food has phenomenal and the conversation was fabulous! We then walked through the town and were able to shop for meats and cheeses that had been served earlier that day at the wine-tasting. We followed that with a stop at a castle with more incredible views. As I said earlier, it was a perfect day!!! Thank you, Simon, for the time of our life and the highlight of our trip!!!
