Pasta factory and wine tour

Pasta and wine: the things you think about when it comes to Tuscany food. What’s behind all this?

Do you know how wheat becomes pasta and grapes turn into wine? Now you have the chance to learn everything about it!

To begin with, the activity will lead you to a pasta factory in Chianti, owned for more than 100 years by the same family: now the 4^ and 5^ generation work together with the same passion of their ancestors. In this pasta factory they don’t only make “regular” pasta (actually, they have more than 40 types), but also they make fresh egg pasta and they experiment with ancient grains and varieties.

The natural companion of pasta is, of course, wine. The local guide you will have with you for all the tour will lead you to one of the most famous vineyards of Chianti Classico area. Since the end of the 19th century, the family who owns the place produces reds and also whites in a wonderful land blessed with a perfect terroir. People working in the winery know that wine is a mix of science and art, mistery and mastery, and they will be happy to introduce you to this magical world and reveal their “secrets”: hard work and passion for a superb quality product.

Lunch is also included with a wine tasting and pairing class.
