    Tuscan food and wine packages

    Borgo Santo Pietro in rural Tuscany offers a number of gastronomic experiences which showcase the exquisite produce of this stunning region. We have put together a three-night holiday package which includes a wine tasting session, a cookery course, a farm visit and dinner at a Farmer’s Market. A great number of other foodie experiences are also available at the hotel, including truffle hunting and gourmet wine tours.
    Hotel Borgo Santo Pietro is a five-star Relais & Chateaux property in the heart of a stunning rural landscape and surrounded by nature reserves. Individually decorated rooms are luxurious and opulent, located within a 13th century villa amid manicured gardens. Facilities include an indulgent spa and an outstanding restaurant which serves dishes created using produce from the kitchen garden.

    Your holiday
    Begin your holiday by flying in to Pisa Airport where you collect a hire-car and drive around 2 hours south into the rural Tuscan landscape. Check in at the Borgo Santo Pietro for three nights, where you will have plenty of time to relax at the hotel and to get out and explore the surrounding area by car.
    Included in this package are a number of gastronomic experiences which allow you to gain a knowledge of Tuscan food and wine:
    Join an experienced sommelier for a private wine-tasting session where you have the chance to sample a selection of wines from Tuscany and further afield. Taking place in the hotel’s well-stocked wine cellar, an expert will guide you as you taste the wines and explain the history and production methods used to create famous Tuscan wines.
    Learn how to cook a selection of traditional Italian dishes and regional specialities such as fresh tortellini, focaccia and crostini. Fun and informal cookery lessons are taught by a talented and experienced chef, ensuring that guests will return home with a greater knowledge of Tuscan cuisine.
    Visit the farm of a nearby organic cheese producer to witness the production of Tuscan sheep’s cheese. Enjoy a behind the scenes tour of the farm, see sheep grazing in the fields, watch them being milked and perhaps even join in if you wish. Finally, you will have the chance to sample a number of different types of Pecorino Cheese alongside a selection of local honeys.
    Each Monday evening a Farmer’s Market is held at the hotel, open to both guests at the hotel and local people. Fresh meats, cheeses, seasonal vegetables and freshly-caught fish are all for sale – guests can choose ingredients to be cooked on the spot either on the wood-burning grill or in the oven. Live music ensures that the outdoor market is a special experience.
    After three nights at the hotel, drive back to Pisa Airport where you return your hire-car and fly back to the UK.
