Giorgio and Margherita, along with their young family welcome you to their Tuscan villa on the hill. They are lovers of Italian gourmet cuisine. Giorgio, a marine biologist, keen fisherman and bridge player, will be happy to show you his underground private cellar and share with you his experience as oenologist, together with a glass of wine! Margherita is a watercolour artist, proud to show you her in-house gallery.
Traditional Italian gourmet cuisine dinners, preceded by a visit to the cellar to select the most appropriate wine for the menu, are available either in your privacy or, in case you are really brave, together with your hosts and their lively young family.
