You are invited to spend a day ‘under the Tuscan Sun’ to visit one of the few wineries in the world that can boast a perfect “100” rating from Wine Spectator!

Considered to be “rebels” of the wine world, the term “Super Tuscan” came into vogue in the late 1980’s as a handful of reds from the Italian region of Tuscany gained international attention. These wines were sold as "vini da tavola" or table wines because of their use of international varietals, principally Cabernet Sauvignon, made them ineligible for official wine categories. They were "super" Tuscan reds - superior in quality and outside of official premium wine designations.

Tour Highlights:
