What you'll do
We'll walk together through the picturesque streets of Bolgheri, a unique 12th-century village and home to the world famous Super Tuscan wines. We’ll show you our favorite restaurants, shops and cafes where you’ll enjoy some local specialties from one of the best places to visit in Tuscany. While you sample delicious food, you’ll be learning about Tuscany’s rich culinary and wine tradition. We’ll start the tour discovering the hidden medieval wine cellar inside the castle with ancient brick vaults hugging dozens of wine barrels. You’ll taste two world-class Bolgheri wines and their extra-virgin olive oil, grown and pressed locally. Then we’ll stop in two of our favorites local restaurants, we’ll meet the owners, listen to their stories and taste traditional Tuscan recipes. We’ll end the day with a delicious authentic homemade gelato and a freshly brewed Italian coffee. We’d love to share our lives with you and tell you stories about local people, food, and wine. Join us and savor a taste of real Tuscany off the beaten path!
I am Chicca, a Tuscan based architect and a passionate chef. I love history, food tradition and wine culture. After my degree in architecture and during my studies, for over 15 years, I travelled with my bicycle through many parts of the world. When it was time to settle, I moved under the Tuscan sun and restored our farmhouse where I live with my family. Here I opened my cooking school and teach Italian cooking classes. As a chef, an experienced traveller and a local resident, I had another call: to share with you the amazing place where we live and its food & wine traditions. I would love to make you part of an authentic Tuscan experience: walking through the villages where we spend our daily lives, tasting the food and drinking the wine we love!
