The Course is held in English by a bilingual Wine Professional Sommelier. This Class is available all year round, and no specific knowledge about Wine is required. Vittorio and Matteo are real wine educators, with over 20 years of experience. They teach courses for both beginners and advanced wine buffs, based at the private wine tasting room in Florence with plenty of wines to be tasted at each session.
Held in Florence, this class is designed to help participants approach the marvelous world of Wine through a comprehensive programme based on the first-hand experience of tasting 5 different Italian red wines and learn about their Origin and Production Process, the difference between Vineyard Areas, Basic Wine Tasting Techniques and appropriate Vocabulary to express this experience.
My husband and I recently did the Florence wine tasting course with Matteo. We had a great time. There were five wines all from around Florence, and Matteo really taught us what to look for and how to get more out of drinking wines from the region. We found a favorite from this tasting (Brunello) and had it at dinner afterward, and even found it back at home. Thanks, Matteo!
Vittorio is an exceptional host and wine expert. We enjoyed his wine tasting evening very much. We not only gained a lot of knowledge of the Tuscan wine production and area but got to taste some fantastic wines from the region. Highly recommended for anyone interested in wine.
An amazing wine tasting class with Matteo and his father who are very knowledgeable but also made the experience feel like a fun sit down with friends over some fantastic Tuscan wine. My friend and I were able to make some fantastic notes on each wine so we were able to take away everything that we learned and remember a fantastic experience. Both of us would highly recommend this experience to anyone who wants an insightful wine tour with information that is easy to keep up with while feeling relaxed with two hosts that were very easy to get along with. We were even able to get a restaurant recommendation afterward which we ventured to and it was incredible! This was definitely a highlight on our trip to Florence and a definite value for money! Should either of us return to Florence in the future we shall take friends and family to enjoy it with us!
I did the wine tasting lesson in Florence with Vittorio. He is highly experienced and qualified and taught me so much about wine, things I have never thought of before. I will definitely be using my new knowledge for the rest of my life. This was easily one of the highlights during my stay in Florence and I highly recommend this experience!
