We take a quick drive to a nearby valley where we’ll learn the ins and outs of pecorino (sheep cheese). The subtle details from the herbs and grasses the sheep feed on, the sheepherder’s style, the environment where it is made and stored; the final taste is a real marriage of high quality milk, curdling compounds (rennet), salting and aging processes. We’ll enjoy a light cheese tasting with local wines.

From here we will drive towards the Pratomagno massif, where we’ll visit Loro Ciuffenna listed as one of the prettiest borghi (villages) in Italy. Visit of the town, the local organic shop and one of the oldest standing mills, as well as an exquisite Romanesque pieve, parish church.

Following we will call upon a local family winery where winemaker Roberto shares his philosophy and passion around the making of Chianti Classico and other wines made with local, indigenous grapes. We’ll combine our tasting of his wines with a beautiful lunch of local specialities.
