What you'll do

Me or Walter will welcome you with a coffee. We'll make an olive and wine tasting and we'll make several home made pastas immersed in the charming Tuscan country side. The villa where we cook is named Tenuta Dolciano and is back in 1635, which was bought by Francesco 1 dei Medici afterwards In 1769, Pietro (Granduca of Tuscany 1765-1790 and afterwards emperor of Austria) personally goes to visit the Tenuta and in 1777, he starts the extension and renovation of the buildings, that will continue until the unification of Italy. During the class we'll be happy to tell you some of the wine and oil history and general facts of Dei Medici Family. We'll lunch together and after the class you will visit a beautiful church, ordered by the Granduca, who in 1787 establishes the parish under the title of San Leopoldo. For all the inhabitants of Dolciano. The Church has a gateway with 6 pillars, with Ionic capellito Frescos adorn the interior and the architrave portal on the porch. We'll also visit the other parts of the villa.
