Wine & Food Passport to Tuscany – October 10-17, 2015

Wine galleryJoin Bishop’s Stock’s “Wine & Food Passport to Tuscany” in October 2015

The gallery is working with travel consultant Paula Sullivan to create a wonderful immersion in wine and food in Italy. The trip will be from October 10-17, 2015. We will explore Chianti, one of Tuscany’s most iconic wine-producing regions. We will visit wineries and meet the winemakers, learning first hand what their expectations are for the current vintage. We will  taste their wines and pair them with the exquisite cuisine of the region. In Lucca we will visit an enoteca with a tasting room in caves under the city. Thousands of bottles line the ancient walls. We will have a primer on olive oils and how to sample them. Get ready to roll up your sleeves for two hands-on cooking classes, one with our own Abbondanza Toscana chef and a second with our friend Stefania Balducci in Chianti who will share her family’s recipes. Learn about Lucca on a cultural and historical tour of the old town center and plan to spend some time browsing the shops. A full week of gastronomic pleasure awaits you on this tour! Contact the gallery for more details and check to see where we will be staying.
