It may sound like a strange combination, but gelato and wine are two of Florence's best-known creations, so why not explore them together?
Your tasting begins under the vaulted ceilings of the historic wine bar Enoteca Alessi. Here, surrounded by glass cabinets of filled with fine grappas, whiskies and cognac, you'll embark on a tasting menu that includes two Tuscan red wines accompanied by various traditional appetizers.
The tour continues right across the street at the well-known famous gelateria, GROM, where you will be introduced to artisanal Italian ice cream, discovering the stages of its production and the secrets of its success. It goes without saying, all the gelato is made solely from natural products and with top quality raw materials and their seasonal flavor-of-the-month is a true delight.
This 60-minute tasting experience is a great way to learn about the food and wine of Florence, and is ideal for any level of foodie!

absolute ... wonderfull!!!! I and my husband enjoy with a fantastic wine tasting!! thank to the sweet and professional staff in Enoteca!!!!
To be able to experience GROM from this perspective is priceless. Our host was kind, warm and friendly. As we approached we encountered a line of about a city block long. I knew we were in the right place at that moment. This is what Gelato is supposed to be. The wine tasting was equally perfect. The environment was cozy and our hostess knowledgeable and fun. She immediately made us feel as though we were guests in her home and treated us as if we were old friends. That is an art.
This experience was more than we could have asked for. My boyfriend and I expected a few tastings in about 45 minutes, instead, we had an experience. We spent the afternoon at the wine store and had a fantastic meal (much more food than we expected) and tasted some beautiful wine (much more than we expected). It was intimate as no other persons were involved, we had a complete one on one experience, and never felt pressured to leave. 2 hours later, we were full, and admittedly a bit tipsy... we could not stop smiling afterwards, it made for a perfect (early) afternoon in Florence.
