This experience takes place on the outside terrace or by the fireside, depending on the season, and serves as an introduction to the rules of pairing wine and food.

We will be pairing three different wines.  Learn how to design a menu for food and wine pairings, and understand the different flavor combinations that the proper food/wine pairing will highlight.

Have you always wanted to learn how to cook authentic Tuscan cuisine?

Here is your chance, with our very own award winning Chef Jacopo.  Jacopo comes from a family who has been cooking Tuscan cuisine the original way for many generations.

You will learn the real way of making Italian food, while having fun.

If you have an idea in mind of something you would like to learn how to cook, we can arrange a personalized class for you.

If you love truffles, than this is for you.

In Maremma, we have the great fortune of having white truffles in the hills inside the estate.

You will go deep into the forest with one of the best truffle hunters in all of Italy (who also trains many of the truffle hunting dogs).

The hunt lasts for several hours.  You will learn all about truffles and what it takes to find them.

You have the option of keeping the truffles that you find, for an additional fee.

Combine this event with a Cooking Class where you can create your very own authentic Italian Truffle dish.

Take a guided trip around Maremma to discover the local food gems.

You will visit an olive oil mill, a sheep farm and a local cheese maker. 

You will have the opportunity to learn the traditional way of producing these delicious products, which has been passed down for many generations, before the invention of factories and mass quantity production methods.

You will also be able to purchase artisanal products to take with you back home.
