Overview

Experience the inimitable flavors of traditional Tuscan cuisine and award-winning Antinori wines in this one-of-a-kind cooking lesson, tour and lunch or dinner with the one-star Michelin Osteria di Passignano in the heart of Chianti country.

Your private cooking lesson will begin in the professional kitchen at Antinori's Fonte de' Medici Estate, where the vines of the great wines Tignanello and Solaia grow. Learn how to prepare a four-course menu with the chef of Osteria di Passignano. During the lesson, you will also enjoy a tasting of Pecorino cheeses, balsamic vinegar and Amedei chocolate; at the end, you will receive a diploma and a complimentary recipe book to take home.

From the school you will then drive in your own personal car to the Badia a Passignano, a fourth century abbey founded by the archbishop of Florence in an enchanting, wooded spot that is 18 miles south of the city. Here, at the celebrated Osteria di Passignano, you will enjoy a delicious meal of the same dishes you previously prepared, accompanied by Antinori wines. The meal will be preceded by an extra-virgin olive oil tasting.

Afterwards, you will step back in time and have the opportunity to visit the historic monastery and cellars of the Badia a Passignano. The Vallombrosan monks that still inhabit this place are recognized for their love of books, for promoting scientific research (Galileo Galilei taught there in 1587) and for their meticulous care of the surrounding fields, especially the cultivation of grapevines and reforestation.

Please note that this service does NOT provide transportation from Florence and/or from the cooking class location to Osteria di Passignano. Custom transfer quotes available upon request.
