Wine Tasting in Villa
To make every single experience unique and tailored we arrange wine tastings here at the villa with the owner of a prestigious winery who will present their wines and guide you through the tasting.
Classes are for everyone - from beginners to lovers of good food and those who want to learn our traditional recipes and have fun learning to make pasta. Courses are held in the afternoon starting at 4.00pm.
We will prepare a full menu including homemade pasta and tiramisù. If you have a food allergy or intolerance, or if you are vegetarian please let us know in advance of your stay.
Learn the art of truffle hunting with an experienced truffle hunter and his dogs. This is available year-round except in May. The truffle experience will take 2 hours and finish with a picnic in the woods.
