FOCUS


Dear University of 3rd Age (U3A),

you have asked our company to come up with a wine and gourmet trip of the region of Tuscany.

Tuscany is a completely different experience to Piedmont, distances and costs are different. Tuscany, well, it has it all and you are going to know and understand every different expression territorially of Sangiovese and the superb examples in God's own region of Italy. This tour gives you everything with food and wine, designed in a relaxed and logistically manner. With a hearty breakfast included every morning and a gourmet  lunch with wines, this will mean you probably won't require more than a snack at night.

We think by showing you 5 different wine regions on this tour, you are really not only ticking all the wine boxes, you are going to enjoy staying in two world renowned tuscan towns, Florence & Siena.


Why take this trip?


Enjoy Tuscany with your friends, see beautiful scenery with spectacular wines and long lunches, 4-star lodging experience, all made and designed with your group in mind. Come back knowledgable about the wines of Tuscany as well as having enjoyed the last of summer's sun under the Tuscan skies.
