The week continues with a private lunch, demonstrated and prepared by Cortona's rising star chef, Mattia Santiccioli of Al Tocco. Partake in a customized four-course meal, paired with Marco Molesini's selection of five exceptional wines. Afterwards, enjoy the afternoon to explore the streets and piazzas of Cortona at your leisure.
Today you'll join Marco for a private winery tour, tasting and lunch. Your group will choose between visiting the Montalcino, Montepulciano, Chianti or San Gimignano wine region. From there, we'll select one of our favorite wineries and you'll spend the day exploring some of Italy's most stunning vineyards.
Begin the day at a private wine tasting with Marco in Enoteca Molesini. Afterwards, enjoy a beautiful lunch at La Grotta with some of your favorite bottles from the tasting in the shop. In the evening, we'll bring you to Buccelletti for an olive oil tasting and sunset aperitivo, set in the olive groves overlooking Castiglion Fiorentino.
Enjoy a day to yourselves or allow us to organize a special day trip to Siena. Your private driver will bring you to this eminent medieval city where you can shop, sip a spritz in the Piazza del Campo, and explore the stunning Duomo di Siena. A light lunch at Ristorante Tar-Tufo will conclude your time in Siena before returning to Cortona for our renowned Wine, Dine & Shine event.
Time to get back into the vines! Your group will pick another wine region to visit and this time you'll be joined by our team's wine specialist, Michela Santiccioli. Tour the vineyard before a private lunch and tasting. Upon returning to Cortona, enjoy one last meal together, recounting your favorite memories from the week in Tuscany.
Today you leave us but we hope your travels continue to another beautiful part of our country. We'll offer your group our concierge services, should you need recommendations or ideas on cities to see, spots to eat, and places to stay. Buon Viaggio!
