That evening unwind with a fabulous Tuscan tasting menu!

Day 2

Beautiful Tuscany will take your breath away with its scenery fine dining and wine; Italian wines have improved at an astonishing pace and not only will you be tasting some of the famous super Tuscans like the Villa Antinori Rosso, but you will be savouring some of the best Italian cooking as the two go delightfully hand in hand.

Enjoy breakfast on the terrace, before being whisked off to the airport as Rioja reds now await! After arriving at the architecturally stunning Hotel Marques de Riscal, you’ll enjoy your first Rioja wine tasting at a cellar dating from 1858.
