Great wines and hosting
Sep 2020
Georgia couldn't do the normal wine tasting class due to low numbers but invited me along to try some wines and discuss them with me. I met a couple that were doing the same and the 3 of us had a wonderful evening tasting local Tuscan wines with Georgia explaining the history and the story behind each one. The food was good and Georgia was a great host. Easily my best night in Siena!

Best afternoon in Siena
Jul 2020 • Couples
My boyfriend and I went here shortly after the whole COVID-situation. Please book this if you are spending your days in Siena this summer!! We were the only two who booked this wine class and it was beyond great. Georgia is an excellent English speaker and clearly an expert. She provided us with a lot of information and we tasted great wines! We had a lovely afternoon and would recommend this to everyone! It is informative, personal, fun and cozy. The snacks went great with the wines, seriously you won’t regret booking this!

Loved This Class!!
Wow! Top notch! Impressive! Learned a lot about Italian wine thanks to Nina. She has an incredible knowledge base and an easy, engaging teaching style which made the wines we tasted all the more fun. Our class was small and she took the time to answer questions. She even helped us make a dinner reservation which was very nice and the food was good! Thank you Nina! Highly recommend!

AMAZING EXPERIENCE!
Aug 2019
My husband and I decided to do this last minute as we had some time before our dinner and we are SO glad we did! Nina--who welcomed us so warmly-- did an fantastic job walking us through the history of Tuscan wines and explaining how Italian appellation system works. She is absolute expert. So thankful we decided to come here! Plan on taking more classes when we come back to Siena

An Absolute Must Do!
Jul 2019 • Couples
We walked past the Tuscan Wine School and thought it looked interesting! Were we in for a treat! Our class was taken by Nina, who told us it was her first day. We knew from her welcome that she was a very friendly and enthusiastic person. Once the class was underway it quickly became evident we had struck gold! Nina was so passionate and knowledgeable about wine and Siena and Tuscany and Italy and we were quickly swept up into her journey. We sampled 6 wines and had a wee serving of cheese and salami and chocolate and bread to compliment the wines. Thoroughly recommend.

Learned a lot and had a great time.
Jul 2019 • Couples
We booked late in the day when we arrived in Siena, so we were surprised when we were the only ones. It was great. We got a personal wine tasting. Georgia is incredibly knowledgeable about wines. She used to work as a wine rep, and it shows. She clearly explained the different levels of certification as well as how to taste wine. I have tasted wine in many places in the US, and Georgia more clearly explained what we should be thinking about as we taste wine. This was a great way to learn about wine in general, Tuscan history of wine making, and current Tuscan wines.

Great fun - learned a lot!
Pre booked a tasting session. Really enjoyed the wine selection presented by Emily - great knowledge but communicated clearly & easily about the wines, their origins, the history and the controls in place supporting the quality control & authenticity!
Would certainly & absolutely recommend
