What to Expect
Itinerary

Discover Franciacorta wines and learn about the Champagne method. Enter a famous winery, which has always been an "open cellar" that welcomes wine tourists every day of the year and guides them to the vineyard and tasting.

Let you be shown the complex pathways that lead from the vineyard to the bottle while listening to how much work there is behind a glass of Franciacorta, about the 70 times that a bottle is touched over the 3-year average life spent in the cellar. Ate the congress hall, you will enjoy an educational video about Franciacorta: "From the harvest to the draw." Then, step through Villa Baiana, also home to the Museum Remo White, Contemporary Art Museum with 180 works on display. You will also have the opportunity to visit the Vertical Marmonier Torchio, a press designed and built by craftsmen from Brescia in 1999 that refers to the concept of crushing, before continuing in the cellar of 7500mq fully realized under the hill with the explanation of the Champagne method.

Finish the tour in the best way toasting with two types of Franciacorta wine paired with crackers, Grana Padano cheese, and salami Bresciano.

A family affair with passion and food!
From the moment we met at the market we were captivated by the charming Francesco and family. An interesting and informed shopping experience at the market, getting around our language barriers. A real Sicilian family home, a warm kitchen, good wine and awesome food. Highly recommendable and unforgettable.

Amazing experience on all fronts!
This cooking experience is as good as it gets. Paola and Tisiano are gracious, lively and informative. Immediately felt at home with them. Their home is a converted olive mill and is stunning. We made pasta (will keep working on my technique) and learned a handful of secrets of Italian cooking from Paola. Food and wine were abundant and all in all, it was more than we could have asked for.

Appalling - he cancelled and still hasn't sent refund
I booked and paid for this, booked a rental car to get there, and was really looking forward to it. The night before the course he sent a message "hello sorry too short notice we have to cancel and reufnd you". I asked about doing the next night instead, but he replied "sorry we won t be available untill the end of the week.i m going to cancel and refund you now ok". So the excuses were different. That was 7 weeks ago and I still don't have a refund. Extremely disappointing because his cancellation late on the night before meant we couldn't book into anything else. I would not recommend booking this.

Lovely experience
My husband I spent an evening with Irene making pasta. The experience was amazing. In addition to learning how to make different types of pasta, we learned about some history and culture. We had great conversations with Irene and the dinner afterwards was awesome. Irene and Eugene made very tasty appetizers and dessert to go along with the pasta we made. It's a full evening and we were there for more than 3 hours. This is a must-do! Also, use the GPS coordinates to get there. We used the address and Waze couldn't quite get us there. This is out in the country and a car is necessary.

Authentic Modena food and fun cooking experience
He usually hosts home cooking experience for a small intimate group from party of 2 to 6 max. His mom is there to show you how then you are going to do it yourself. My Chinese dumpling making skills come in handy :) He changes menu according to season and guest preferences which is super great. I walked away with a full belly and a happy soul.

An authentic cooking experience in the heart of Toscana
The friendly and warm welcome we received from the family of Antonietta was an icing to the sumptuous Tuscan cuisine she taught and help us prepared.

Bad Experience
Booked this cooking class well in advanced. Really looked forward to it. The night before the event, the organizer shoot us a message that they have too little bookings for it to take place. We surely understand this, but if we would have known that before we would have organzied something else to do. You wouldnt do that late in the night before. Thats the first thing, 2nd. we still waiting for the already payed course refund!!

Scam
We arrived at the posted location only to see that they were closed. We were directed to another location. Good thing we had lots of spare time. The company Acetaia Malpighi were wonderful and were unaware of this tour. They say all tours and tastings are free.

Really charming evening!
Paola and Tisiano are charming and experienced hosts and their home, renovated from an old olive mill is stunning. Paola is an artist as she describes the mixing of flavors colors and balancing elements. We made some homemade pasta and assisted with other dishes. Wine was plentiful, the other guests very good fun and the meal was a masterpiece! Worth twice the price!

Scam
All tastings and tours here are free of charge (and great so please do go!) however don’t fall into the trap of paying online here as it’s a scam and not required. Just turn up to the shop in the centre of Modena or the factory just outside to get the same experience for free.

A Fabulous tour
The walking tour was fabulous! Fulvio and his assistant are so lovely and knowledgeable. It was the first time I visited Palermo, and I’ve learned so much about this city from them. We also had a lot of delicious street food on that day! I highly recommend it!

THIEFS!
Do not use this company. I booked and paid a workshop 'Salsa like a local" night before the assigned day. The next day morning I contacted them just to confirm. They had no idea I made such a booking first of all and then they said it is too late to book and they will refund me back. I sent them couple of messages to urge the refund but haven't received any responses nor the promised refund. Shame.

Marble cave Jeep tour
I rate it a top tour. Very well done and quite exciting to see. The two hour tour is the best as it covers a number of sites on the mountain.

Fantastic dinner with a fantastic group!
Lorenzo was amazing and may be one of the only people in the world to be able to show my wife how to cook! We both had a fantastic time getting to learn and at the same time meet people from all over!
