Wine Blending in Tuscany

09.15 AM. Pick up is directly from your accommodation in Florence (other locations are available on request) and we head out into the Chianti wine region in our private minivan. The trip takes about an hour and we will enjoy some lovely countryside on the way. On arrival we’ll meet the estates resident wine maker and take our seats in the blending room. Our morning of wine blending in Tuscany begins as we are introduced to five mono varietal wines. You will be guided in the techniques of smelling and tasting to help you understand the the characteristics of each one. Of course you’ll receive hints on what to look for. The next step will be “trial and error” as we proceed with our the session session by mixing varying percentages, just like making a cocktail. We’ll take notes of the results each time, and like the professionals, continue till we reach the perfect blend. That’s to say our perfect blend, and you’ll receive all the guidance you need to obtain the results you prefer.

When you’re happy with the results, the formula is noted and 12, 24 or 36 bottles (see below) will be filled and put in the cellars for three months ageing. In the meantime you can design you own personalized label and forward it in digital form via email. The label will be printed and attached to your bottles before delivery. Your wine will then be shipped directly to your door.

Please Note: 12, 24 or 36 bottles are per session not per person. For example: two participants is six bottles each. You may if you wish, purchase extra bottles of your blend, or other wines from the winery.

Lunch is at your leisure. The winery offers a full Tuscan feast with paired wine tasting in their 18th century. Villa. Alternatively we can go to my favorite restaurant in the nearby town of Panzano. (Lunch not included in fee).

The second part of wine blending in Tuscany tour consists of a leisurely drive through the landscapes of Tuscany, where we’ll make a number of stops for photos, or simply to contemplate one of the world’s most beautiful rural areas. A tapestry of vineyards, natural woodland, olive orchards and old stone farmhouses.
