Italian and Wine Course in Florence

Italian and Wine Course in Florence, Italy

As the capital of Tuscany, Florence is situated in the heart of the renowned wine region, globally celebrated for its high-quality wines. This geographical advantage provides students with direct access to some of the finest vineyards and wineries, allowing for an immersive learning experience.

Furthermore, Florence has a rich cultural history deeply intertwined with winemaking. The city itself boasts a vibrant wine culture, with numerous wine bars, enotecas, and restaurants offering an extensive selection of local and international wines. This ensures that you are perfectly located to explore and deepen your knowledge of wine.

Our Italian school in Florence has designed this “Wine Lovers” programme not just for wine specialists, but for anyone who simply loves wines and wants to enjoy a complete immersion into the world of Italian wines, whilst savouring all that the region has to offer.

Wine Tasting course

The wine lessons and tasting sessions in Florence are held on an astonishing terrace with a 360-degree view overlooking the city rooftops. This unique setting enables you to experience all the magic that Florence has to offer, whilst enjoying your passion for wine.

Our sommelier, but more importantly our local expert wine lover, will guide you on an unforgettable journey through the many aspects of the Italian wine world, focusing on the incredible variety on offer. You will learn about and sample wines from local Tuscan producers to other world-famous varieties. Participants will not only taste exceptional Italian wines but also gain unique insights into their production, the people behind them, the history of each bottle, and the local traditions that make Italian wines an integral part of the nation’s identity.

At the start of every wine lesson, students receive a handout containing the lesson's content and details about the wines they'll taste. The initial segment is dedicated to theory, covering not only the technical aspects of each wine but also delving into its history, traditions, and cultural significance. Throughout the session, students will have the opportunity to sample three different wines, each paired with some of the region's most renowned local food delicacies.

A visit on Saturday to a local producer will provide a firsthand experience of the work behind the final product. This immersive experience takes you into the enchanting ambiance of a Tuscan vineyard and historic wine cellars. During the visit, you'll have the opportunity to meet the people who craft this magic, and, perhaps more significantly, savour a taste of it!
