Just looking at our social media accounts, it is obvious that a lot of us have become more passionate about sharing the food we eat, the wine we pair with it, and the surrounding culture that comes with the experience. I believe this to be a positive trend, as this connection is known to promote a healthier relationship with food and wine, increase the appreciation of the farm-to-table process and encourage an understanding of the unique cultural experience of it all. This has revived the age-old belief that eating a meal or drinking a glass of wine is so much more than just a mindless action, whether it be on the run or in a planned event, it is in fact an experience that nourishes the body, mind, and in the right environment, with the right people, the soul.
So, imagine being able to experience this in an all-inclusive experience of wine, food, and culture in beautiful Tuscany, Italy! Two such offerings currently available via a partnership between Trouvaille and A Toast to Travel are the All-Inclusive Cooking Under the Tuscan Sun Experience (6 nights/7 days) from October 15-21, 2017, at a now discounted price of $2,925 per person, a saving of $975; and the All-Inclusive Ultimate Tuscan Wine Experience (6 nights/7 days) from November 5-11, 2017, at a discounted cost of $2,500 per person, a saving of $1,400! Both trips are fully hosted and curated by the fabulous couple John and Natalie Mosallam, both fluent in the native Italian language. Both of these experiences are all inclusive, meaning, once you join them, all lodging/villa, meals and drink, activities, transportation to activities, and gratuities are covered!
Some of the highlights from the Cooking Under the Tuscan Sun experience are a stay in a beautiful historic private villa in Tuscany with daily hands-on cooking lessons with the resident Chef, truffle hunting, wine tasting at the beautiful Tuscan wineries, yoga, painting classes under the Tuscan sun, and a day to explore the beauty of Siena!
Highlights from The Ultimate Tuscan Wine Experience are a stay in a beautiful historic private villa in Tuscany with four visits to different Tuscan wineries, day stays in Florence and Siena, a Tuscan banquet, and an opportunity to explore the beautiful Villages in Chianti!
