2019-10-22Best food we ate in Tuscany hands down!!!
We had Hilary Grass as our tour guide and sommelier for the day. She was amazing!! From when we first met, she was very outgoing and easy to talk to. She taught us about the history and culture of not only Florence and San Miniato, but of all of Italy. She kept the truffle hunt interesting, and fun, and pointed out the soil, olive trees, bay leaves, and more interesting facts throughout the truffle hunt. We found 3 white truffles with her, Francesca, and their "star of the show", Ciocco. Afterwards, we ate the most delicious truffle lunch!!! Best food we ate in Tuscany hands down!!! After we were done, she took us to a local boutique vineyard and taught us how to taste, smell, and identify good wine. During the entire experience, she gave us recommendations for wine, places to eat, and where to buy certain items. She was an amazing tour guide, and made the experience unforgettable!! She gave great recommendations. At each stop, there are opportunities to buy their products, but they never make you feel pressured into buying anything.
