I’m Francesca and I believe WINE IS SHARING.
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, where I obtained an AS Degree in Business Administration, I decided to return to my roots and moved to Bolgheri where I restored an old farmhouse with my husband.
Wine has always been part of my life.
My grandfather was a farmer and used to make his own wine with the help of the family. I have grown up being a wine enthusiast.
I have obtained a Level 2 Award in Wines & Spirits, WSET, a highly recognized international certification and I’m currently studying for a Level 3 Award certification.
I would love to plan and accompany you on the tours, while enjoying fantastic food and wine, share with you some tips about how we live over here. And, of course, discover the vineyards where SuperTuscan wines were born! Wine is sharing as this is one of the many gifts in life to get to know a place, its culture and its people.
There isn’t any better way to discover our amazing Tuscany.
I am Chicca, a Tuscan-based architect and a passionate chef of home cooked food. I’am also passionate traveling and cycling. After many years of cooking for my family and friends, I found my calling: teaching people how to cook authentic HOME FOOD while sharing recipes and stories about our incredible culture. I opened my cooking school to spread traditional-Italian and typical-Tuscan cuisine in Italy and abroad.
As a chef, an experienced traveller and a local resident, I had another wish: to share with you the amazing place where we live. My team and I would love to make you part of an authentic Tuscan experience: walking through villages where we spend our daily lives, tasting the food we eat, drinking the wine we love. And don’t forget the good company, because food brings people together!
