We will spend the entire day discovering the Lucca area for an unforgettable wine experience!

First, we will drive towards Lucca, through its historical center, to discover the unique intact Renaissance city walls and learning more about its defensive system.

Then, we will move to Pieve Santo Stefano to have a nice organic wine tasting in an ancient farmhouse that has been beautifully restored to offer its guests a unique location full of charm and history with breathtaking views of the city and the valley. This farm is both organic and biodynamic certified, and the tasting consists in 4 always different wines, combined with local traditional products.

After this experience, we will move to a splendid medieval village, called Montecarlo di Lucca; due to its location, Montecarlo played a strategically important role throughout the 14th century being in the midst of several wars between Lucca, Pisa and Florence.

In Montecarlo we will have lunch with wine and olive oil tasting in a small family winery-farm, out from the usual itineraries, where the nice lady-owner will be happy to guide you for a walk in the vineyards and in the cellars to discover the history and tradition of the local wines and olive oil, through an in-depth explanation of the region, as well as the various phases of production, but above all she will give you the opportunity to taste the D.O.C. white and red wine of Montecarlo (produced only in this region) combined with the traditional and local cuisine. Lunch consists in a series of courses made of selected products only from this territory, cooked with simple and traditional recipes: different types of home-made bread with extra virgin olive oil produced in the farm, Bruschetta, Tuscan salami and ham, cheeses with honey, local beans, dessert, and other foods depending on the season. Everything accompanied by 8 different types of wine.

After lunch, you will have your third wine experience of the day in a charming and comfortable estate. The tour includes an introduction with the history of the company, the visit of the cellar where you will have an explanation of every single phases of the wine making process, from the harvest to the bottling, tour of the barriques room and of the historical cellar. The tour ends up in the tasting areas, where you can taste 4/5 among the company’s wines and their extra-virgin olive oils, accompanied by bruschettas and a selection of cheesed and cold cuts.
