When we talk about wine we should close our eyes and “fly with” our imagination go to the most beautiful region of Italy which is Tuscany. Why? Because Tuscany has amazing breathtaking landscapes covered by olive groves, rolling hills full of vineyards and its typical sceneries are rich in nature, villas, farmhouses and especially wineries. Thanks to all this, Tuscany, with its Chianti area, produces the finest wines in Italy which are recognized worldwide, achieving, at the same time, worldwide popularity. Our Chianti wine obtained the DOC recognition in 1967 and the DOCG qualification in 1984 because the Chianti area is the most renowned production area in Tuscany for the tradition and the quality of its wines.
Now that you are in Tuscany, you cannot go back home without experiencing a wine tour where a local expert guide will take you around showing you the vineyards, wineries and cellars while giving you a full explanation of the winemaking process. Of course, this is followed by the wine tasting often combined with the local farm products and specialties that will delight your refined palate.
As you already know among our prestigious labels you find the Chianti Classico DOCG, Rosso di Montepulciano, Vernaccia di San Gimignano, Brunello di Montalcino, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Pourriture Noble, Bogheri DOC, Montecarlo DOC, Biancodi Pitigiano DOC, etc and each one of them with its own taste and flavor.

About Me

I have had a love for cooking since I was a child while watching my mother cooking and my father picking fresh produce from our garden. Besides, I realized how the different cooking traditions were able to live together despite the fact my mother came from Friuli (north Italy) and my father from Calabria (south Italy). My passion grew more and more because of the mixture of these dishes that reminded me of my origins. I consider myself a passionate cook.
When my studies were over I travelled around the world picking up the traditions and cultures of the different countries. I worked as a touristic assistant at first and then as a holiday resort manager. One of my duties was to attend and manage the supervision of the kitchens where I worked; Tunisia, Egypt, Spain, Madagascar, Kenya, Austria, France, Switzerland, Slovenia and Greece.
Thanks to this experience and the passion that makes me alive, I am able to offer my customers unique and amazing dishes because they are very special to me and I’m strongly convinced that.
My goal is to create indelible memories regarding our Italian cuisine.
