We were staying in Florence and booked a guided tour day trip to Pisa, Livorno and Siena. The guide asked if we wanted to go to a winery for lunch. Since our 12 and 16 y ear old daughters agreed, we went.
What an experience! Luigi is quite the host (and salesman). He greeted us upon arrival, shaking my hand and addressing my wif\e as "the queen" and my daughters as "princess #1 and princess #2".
A most enjoyable wine tasting (probably sampled 8 or 9 different wines) with a three course meal (antipasto, riboletta and lasagna). We had to pass on the dessert because one of my daughters has tree nut allergies.
This was truly one of the highlights of our 10 Italian vacation.
