Wine and Charcuterie Tasting in Tuscany
APERI-VINO TASTING WITH THE CHEF
Treat yourself and your guests to an afternoon of wine and charcuterie tasting at your location with celebrity chef Davide Cerretini. He brings everything to you so you can relax and enjoy sampling some of the delicious local cheeses and meats, along with tasting (and learning about) the outstanding wines of this beautiful region.
Born and raised in Tuscany, chef Davide has insider knowledge of the best produce available....for generations his family have been producing wine, olive oil, pasta, bread and prosciutto in the areas around Volterra, Morrona and Casciana Terme. And of course, he loves the local wines more than anything. From the coastal Bolgheri to the Brunello, Vermentino, Vernaccia, high-end Chianti and the never ending traditional and new blends spread all over the region, he has developed a deep knowledge and appreciation of the wine of his homeland over his years as a restauranteur and chef.
And nothing is better than combining these gems with a local Pecorino, Guanciale, Prosciutto Toscano, Soppressata, crostini and other handcrafted treasures that only true locals know how and where to find. Especially the best olive oil, which comes directly from his family! This olive oil is so good that when his grandmother died some years back her last wish (honored to this day) is that her brother's family continue to supply her children and grandchildren with a portion of the yearly harvest, as they always had done. Thus Davide is gifted a precious few bottles each year, and this he shares with you (until it is gone and we must wait for the next year!)
In Toscana It is not just what people eat, but how they pair all these products together that makes them enjoyable to the fullest. Immerse yourself in the variety of flavors and stories that Chef Davide will bring to you, giving you an insightful picture of life in Tuscany before and now and the flavors that make it so distinctive.
This aperi-vino tasting includes 2 prestigious local wines, exclusive artisan local cheeses and traditional cured meats of the highest quality available. Chef Davide will help you to customize the tasting according to your requests and will travel to your location to provide the tasting. He is fluent in Spanish, Italian and of course English, having had an international career of over 30 years in the restaurant business in San Francisco, California.
