Winner of Airbnb Experiences award "The most unforgettable experience"
My team will welcome you at one of the most beautiful Villas dating back to 1600, with a gorgeous view on the Tuscan countryside, in the Chianti Classico region, a wine area globally known. We will start by tasting a cup of Italian style coffee, made with a "moka" and fresh water. Then We will guide you through the property, explaining the story of our Villa and grape for our Chianti wine. We will learn how to prepare different kinds of homemade pasta from scratch and an Italian dessert according to the old traditions using the recipes of my Grandmother.
You will get to taste our Extra Virgin Olive Oil, produced by my family since three generations with 100% Coratina olives from Apulia. Then a glass of wine awaits you for a toast before enjoying a delicious dinner based on what we have created during our cooking class.
As you finish your dinner you're treated with a truly unique, beautiful and intimate performance of Live music (Jazz, Opera, Traditional music - Different music everyday )

This was fun and worth the time away from sightseeing. We made two kinds of pasta, two different sauces a salad and dessert. The live singer at the end was the cherry on top. Very organized and planned out.

Beautiful location. Wonderful food. Met new friends. The dinner was so tasteful. We learned many new skills and recipes that we look forward to preparing at home. Would highly recommend this tour.

This was a very private, cozy, and educational experience. It would have been worth it even without the opera. The opera in the kitchen part was spectacular. What an amazing and beautiful voice she had. This is an experience I will NEVER forget.

What a beautiful, authentic experience!! First of all, the location is absolutely magical. This is what I pictured in my head when I thought of Italy!! Secondly, Francesca was such a dear woman with a warm personality - she was patient and really loves what she does. She was attentive throughout the entire experience and really showed us the best customer service. I have to say, that she was the nicest person we met on our entire journey throughout Italy! The food was incredible - it inspired us to cook more when we get home and use fresher ingredients made from scratch. And the opera performance just made the night unforgettable!! She was a fanatic performer and it was basically like having front row seats to a private concert and the songs brought tears to my eyes, they were so beautiful!!! Overall, it was worth every penny and I’m so glad we included this unique experience into our travel plans while in Italy. It was truly a wonderful taste of Tuscany!!

Es war wirklich ein schöner Nachmittag bei Lucrezia, die eine sehr angenehme und gute Gastgeberin war. Und es hat viel Spaß gemacht, zusammen zu kochen und dann ein gemeinsames Mahl einzunehmen. Das Rezept für die Parmigiana habe ich gleich zuhause ausprobiert … Auch der Auftritt der jungen Sängerin, begleitet von der Gastgeberin am Piano, war gelungen und niveauvoll. Insgesamt ein gelungenes Event!

This was truly one of the most amazing experiences we’ve ever been to. It was awesome learning how to make different types of pastas and dishes, and Francesca was a fantastic teacher and thorough in explanations. She also catered to allergies and was so sweet. We also enjoyed the other guests and we enjoyed meal and drink like we were old friends, and that truly was a treat. The opera singer was absolutely stunning- we were enjoying the food and conversation that it felt like an extra dessert! It was the perfect end to our time in Tuscany. Highly recommend! I totally understand why this is so highly rated!
