Hi, I’m Francesca and I was born and raised in Tuscany surrounded by wonderful local food and wines.
My first college Degree in English Translations and Interpreting brought me to the US. After living in Florida for several years I decided to return to my roots and moved to Bolgheri where I restored an old farmhouse with my husband.
Being a wine enthusiast I have obtained a Level 2 Award in Wines & Spirits (WSET certification) and I’m currently studying for Level 3 Award – so please wish me luck!
Come and join me for an unforgettable gourmet retreat in this amazing region. Relax while enjoying the fantastic food and wine, learn about how we live over here, improve your cooking skills, or enjoy the other activities we can offer you to get to know and appreciate this part of Italy. Visit the hamlet of Bolgheri, San Guido, the village of Castagneto Carducci, the bird sanctuary “Oasi di Bolgheri” the first WWF Wildlife Refuge of Italy and, of course, discover the vineyards where SuperTuscan wines are born.
