“This was by far the best part of our trip to Florence! It was so nice to get out of the city and visit an old wine cellar. The chef gave such an amazing historical and educational tour of the cellar...he also taught us how to make Italian pizza and gelato from scratch! We got to take the recipes home with us. This cooking class was so much fun and the food and Chianti were delicious!”

After meeting your group at 6 p.m., you’ll board your private and comfortable coach for the ride to the Chianti region—where some of Italy’s most famous wine varietals are grown. Within a half-hour, you’ll arrive at a boutique winery estate, with a magnificent Renaissance Villa set amid vine-covered hills and olive groves. Here, you’ll tour the estate’s kitchen (adjacent to its 1,000-year-old cellar), get a cooking demonstration, and then don aprons to try your hand at making your own pizza and gelato from scratch. Once your creations are ready to eat, you’ll settle into a table in the adjoining dining room, where you’ll get to savor the meal you made yourself, along with delicious regional wines.
