From $25.00

Go behind the scenes at Tuscan vineyard for a lesson in Italian wines.

Grab a glass and join Italian winemaker Pierluigi, or his family member, as he welcomes you to his family’s vineyard in Tuscany for an expert lesson and winetasting tips. In this Online Escape, you'll learn about the history of Tenuta Torciano, the vineyard where Pierluigi's family has been making wine for 300 years. Learn about the different types of wine produced in San Gimignano, one of the great wine regions of Tuscany, and get a behind-the-scenes look at the vineyard. You’ll see what it takes to make a great bottle of wine, then get expert tips for tasting wines at home. Not sure how to tell if your Chianti is from Chianti? Wondering what the “swirl and sniff” is all about? Well, whether you’re already an oenophile or aren’t sure where to get started, this Online Escape will give you the knowledge you need to select, sip, and savor the best wines at home.
