Wine Tour with Sommelier Fabio
I create unique tours to discover wine regions of Tuscany and Italy.
Why choose me
I am an Italian sommelier and a wine educator (sommelier school), I collaborate with a wine magazine (“Sommelier Toscana”), I write on the blog Il Salotto del Vino and I am a regional editor of the annual winebook “VITAE”. Therefore, I’m the perfect companion for wine lovers, who don’t just want to make a tour with a driver, but wish to learn form a real expert, visiting selected wineries, tasting fine wine and food.
What are my tours like
My aim is to create a unique experience focused on discovering the fine wines of Tuscany and Italy. My tours are only about wine, wine regions, wineries (… but you can drink water as well at lunch!). Each tour is customized based on client’s expectations. I will ask you what you’re into and I’ll make you a proposal that you can agree or ask for a change.
Service I can offer
I can just be your wine guide, or I can find a car or minivan with a driver for you. I work with qualified partners and travel agencies. I am flexible and will accomodate your needs. You get me, my skills and my experience at you service.
What is my fee
I am not rewarded by wineries. I select wineries for the quality of their wines. I only work for your interest. I assume you are hiring me for my skills, so my fee includes the organization of the tour and the time I spend with you. Based on the kind of service you ask me, I will let you know the total price (calculated by adding to my fee the cost for the car/van, for tasting at wineries and for lunch).
