Tuscany Food and Wine Tour with Giuliano and Lael Hazan
Eat, live and experience Tuscany like a Medici prince guided by Giuliano Hazan and his wife Lael. You will lodge four nights at the extraordinary Locanda dell’Amorosa, nestled in the hills above Montepulciano, one night overlooking the Tuscan coast just outside of Bolgheri, and a night in the center of Florence, a five minute walk from the Piazza del Duomo.
Visit some of the region’s finest food artisans, benefiting from an insider’s access that tourists rarely have. Go on a truffle hunt and learn from a veteran tartufaio; visit a dynamic and innovative chocolatier from the famous Tuscan "chocolate valley"; make your own Amaretti cookies at an artisanal bakery; and visit one of the top sheep’s milk cheese producers in Pienza, a honey producer in Montepulciano, and an artisanal pasta producer near Pisa.
Giuliano and Lael have put their palates to work in testing and choosing the restaurants that will cook memorable meals for you. Marilisa Allegrini, one of the Italy's most honored wine producers, will be filling your glasses with choice tipples. Marilisa will host you at her two Tuscan wineries, San Polo, in Montalcino, and Poggio al Tesoro in Bolgheri, the land of Super Tuscans, where you will learn how to blend your very own bottle to take home!
