Know More about this tour

Make your own way to the venue for your small-group experience: a traditional enoteca in Florences historical San Lorenzo quarter.

Head inside and meet the friendly and knowledgeable owner-come-sommelier, Livio. A winner of the prestigious Best Sommelier Fisar Italia award, Livio will guide your tastings and introduce you to the world of Tuscan wine and cuisine so you can get the best from the experience.

Take a seat and learn how the bar opened in 1895, first as a delicatessen and then a fish shop, and has stayed in the hands of the same family since. See the beautiful marble basins, complete with sculpted marble spouts, that were once used to wash the fish sold here.

Then, set about sampling the wines and snacks prepared for your tasting: a selection ofthree classic Tuscan wines and a luscious spread of locally sourced produce.

Although the wines and foods may vary, you can typically expect to sample wines such as a Chianti Colli Senesi DOCG red and Super Tuscan Noir red accompanied by local cheeses, fresh fruit, cold cuts and some of the regions finest olive oils (See the Itinerary for a sample menu).

As you sip and nibble, swap notes with your fellow tasters and get the benefit of Livios exhaustive knowledge of Tuscan wine. Discover how the wines are made, the vineyards they hail from, and hear about the culinary delicacies on offer and how they complement each wine.

After around an hour of enjoying the tastings and convivial atmosphere, your wine and cheese sampling session then comes to an end.

    This tour was awesome! I was traveling alone so it was nice to be able to sit down with a small group there were only three others attending and enjoy great wine. Good value for money and just an overall great Florence experience!

    Very nice for a short tasting. Location was a little hard to find.

    A wonderful private experience learning about the best wines and cheeses from the region.

  • 23-Feb-2018

    This was one of our absolute favorite parts of our entire trip. The lovely owner of La Divina Enoteca was both congenial and knowledgable, and we learned quite a bit and enjoyed ourselves immensely! Everything was absolutely delicious from the wines, to the cheeses, and the conversation - thank you for an incredible experience - one which we won't ever forget!

    Awesome experience with a knowledgable guide! Would do it again in a heartbeat.

    Our host was knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. His store was beautiful and the wines and cheeses were delicious and paired nicely.

    This was a delightful experience. I learned a lot about the regional wines and olive oils. Wines were fantastic! Had a great time. Would do it again.

    I enjoyed this experience and learned some new things about local wine and cheese. The presenter was very knowledgeable and approachable, and the setting was conducive. It was a very small group the day I went, so it was quite personal - I think the group size is always kept low, so I'm sure it would be fine. It was not cheap for a short session, but it was a good experience.

    We had a lot of fun tasting the various wines, cheeses, olive oils, and bread. Very knowledgeable guide, great place, nice group! Would recommend this for a very fun, relaxed couple of hours!

    I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Florence, that may not have time to make it out to the any of the wineries. This was a great way to experience some of the local wines while staying right in the city! It is also a beautiful thing that all of the wines that you taste on this are very delicious and affordable if you wanted to purchase at the end of the tour.
