Meet yout guide at the Tuscan Wine School at 11:00am for the start of the tour.
Tuscans revel in their culinary heritage, and food is a central part of everyday life in Italy. The Savor Siena Tour will introduce you to the Tuscan food culture and Siena's most typical foods, so join us at the Tuscan Wine School for a walk around Siena on the discovery of its best foods and food artisans.
Learn about local wine production and taste a typical local white and red wine. Learn to taste extra virgin olive oil and why the Tuscan bread is plain and used in many local recipes. Sample different Pecorino sheep cheeses and distinguish fresco from stagionato with different local honeys. Taste the rare cinta senese, an almost extinct pig that is unique to Siena. Hear of the history of the recipe behind Siena's medieval fruitcake and panpepato, the local pepperbread. Learn how local truffles are found, taste black & white truffles and discover the curious Italian gelato ice-cream culture!
Savor Siena offers a chance to not only taste, but to learn about Tuscany’s wealth of foods, with a particular focus on what's Sienese. See how the local foods tie into local Tuscan culture and history, and enjoy many delicious bites. Because the class is partly a tour external to the school, you will need to be physically fit to walk around a mile.
