8 DAYS TOUR IN AREAS WITH DIFFERENT HISTORY AND WINES
Tuscany is famous for its extraordinary combination of natural beauty and a vast cultural heritage consisting of an incredible number of art works ranging from Etruscan times through the Renaissance and Baroque periods to the 20th century.
The grape is another Tuscan masterpiece and a characteristic type of fruit of Italy. When the grape reaches the highest point of maturation it is round up (in august in the South of Italy, end of September in Tuscany, and a bit later in the North). If left untouched it would be lost and eaten by bees and birds. The grape collection method is the following: the more mature grape is collected in baskets or in trays. Then it is “pestata”:that is to say that the farmers jump with their feet in the baskets full of grapes. After, a tool called “torchio” serves to better press the grape.
The purpose of this tour is to discover and to be acknowledged about different vines, methods, recipes, techniques and consequently final products in the more characteristic Tuscan wine areas such:
