Grape Harvest Experience: a world of Tuscan traditions and flavors

Grape Harvest: a millennial tradition still alive …enjoy it with local people.

In Tuscany, September is the month of grape harvest. All small villages, here and there in the breathtaking Tuscan countryside, become as “big families” helping each other to harvest grape before the bad weather comes. Delicious lunches. Tasteful wines for adults and grape juices for kids. Women cooking cakes and biscuits around the fireplace. Men working, while telling local stories and curiosities. Happiness. Smiles. Songs. Just amazing!

This is what grape harvest means in Tuscany, one of the best wine Italian regions.

First of all, enjoy a beautiful unforgettable full-day immersed in one of the most stunning and wild Tuscan countrysides, few steps away from Florence. Join the local farmers and pick grapes up with your hands. Smell the sweet grape scent and taste its delicious fresh flavor.

Then, enjoy a typical Tuscan lunch in a typical ancient country house. If you wish, you could help the owner to prepare the table, look how she makes Tuscan recipes, listen to her wise tips passed down from generation to generation and maybe help her cooking, like a friend. A very exclusive and true cooking class. Homemade pasta, bread, bruschetta with local extra virgin olive oil and … much more. While learning the secrets of Tuscan cuisine, sip the most famous and heavenly local wines and enjoy the authentic experience of being part of a Tuscan family, for a day and … forever!
