What to expect

Step into the kitchen with the lady of the house and owner of the estate to discover the Tuscan culinary tradition.

You will discover that Tuscan cuisine is simple and rich in genuine, lost or sometimes forgotten flavours. During the cooking classes in Tuscany, you will learn how to make local dishes that are easy to repeat at home.

Afterwards, we will take a walk in the vineyard to get to know the varieties of traditional Tuscan vines and explain the biodynamic method. In the wine cellar, you will learn more about the stages of biodynamic winemaking.

We will conclude your cooking class in Tuscany with lunch or dinner by tasting the dishes we have cooked together, paired with our wines.

The Food Expert:

The winery is located on the hills of San Miniato, an ancient medieval village in the heart of Tuscany in the Province of Pisa, along the route of the Via Francigena, land of wines and white truffles (the precious Tuber Magnatum).

The estate, owned by our family since 2000, covers a single hill, 40 hectares of vineyards, olive groves and arable land. Our vineyards are located about 100 metres above sea level and the grape varieties that we have been growing are typical of the Tuscan wine tradition, including the Sanforte, an almost disappeared native grape variety of which we have recovered the genetic heritage.


Cancellation policy: all bookings for the Tuscan cooking class can be cancelled within 3 days from the start date of the experience. Read the Terms and Conditions.

Our passion is biodynamics: doing agriculture following the methods of biodynamic farming means not only excluding the use of chemical and synthetic fertilisers, but also regenerating the soil and the plants through biological activators that help them find their nourishment in the soil itself.

Our family (there were eight of us) had a wonderful and delicious experience. The chef took us (through the use of an interpreter and guide) through all the steps of making the dishes. Everyone had a chance to participate and thoroughly enjoyed it. The vineyard Walk and visit to the winery were very interesting. The wines were served with our dinner – delicious!
