Wine and Cheese tasting
Wine and Cheese tasting in "Montepulciano" and "Pienza" area
At country house in Tuscany we can organize for you a special trip in the wine land with a guide (who will pick-up you directly here on the property), who will show you the most famous wineries where you can taste wine. Most of the tasting services are free, but we can also organize a payment trip in the largest winery with a little extra-cost. Before or after the wine tour, the guide will show you Pienza and its famous cheese in the shops of the town centre.
Dear Guests, my name is Anna and I will be your cooking teacher at country house in Tuscany "Rocca di Pierle". At the moment I'm teaching "Current trends in Italian cuisine" in an international school in Florence. I also teach to people who are interested in learning Italian and international dishes. I have worked for a five star luxury hotel in Milan and recently I have been to San Francisco for a chef demo at the California Culinary Academy. Cooking has always been my passion and I'm continuously updating my knowledge by attending cooking classes and by reading cooking books and magazines.
Dear Guests, my name is Laura and I will be your cooking teacher at "Rocca di Pierle Country House". I will introduce you in Italian cuisine and mainly in traditional Tuscan recipes. I will help you with simple tips and tricks to optimize and to organize your time while in the kitchen with excellent results.
We will provide a full culinary experience including the right wine for your meal. Since I was a child, I was taught not to waste food so we could help you prepare delicious meals using leftovers. So that, going back home from an unforgettable vacation in Cortona, you'll be able to cook Italian food!
The lesson includes a complete 4 courses menu and it is organized as follows: first of all I will send you some menu proposals, then you will choose the dishes to make; secondly we'll buy the ingredients and bring what is necessary to prepare the food; finally we will spend three hours enjoying ourselves cooking and sharing cooking tips and tasting what we have prepared in your holiday accommodation in Cortona, near Rocca di Pierle. We look forward to spending our time with you at "Rocca di Pierle Country House".
