Get ready to raise your glass and loosen your belt at the first-ever Divino Tuscany (www.divinotuscany.com) festival June 2-5 feting winemaking in the region. The four-day extravaganza in Florence shows off Tuscany’s foremost vintners alongside fabulous cuisine and world-class entertainment.
Longtime oenophiles as well as those looking to sophisticate their palates will enjoy seminars led by James Suckling, former European Bureau Chief of Wine Spectator; tutored tastings at the Four Seasons Hotel Firenze; and hosted dinners at the private Palazzi of Tuscany’s leading wine families. How to top off such a decadent and delicious weekend? A traditional Tuscan pig roast with Sting and his wife at their private villa, of course.
Book your tickets for the festival with Select Italy; the package costs $2,299/person and does not include airfare or accommodations.
