First Winery Visits Jan 5, 2013 Rennie Young

Day two in Florence started bright and early with a trip to the country. The road zigged and zagged every which way and there were times that I thought I would see me breakfast in reverse but somehow we all survived. Our first stop was at a beautiful winery that really looked like a castle and had more acres than I can remember. It’s called Castello di Verazzano and we were given the grand tour of the winery which included a history lesson of the wineries namesake that lived in the 16th century.

We then had a private tour of the cellar and then went on to have a private tasting of two wines, along with an olive oil paring that was the most amazing olive oil I have ever had in my life. Next we went to Badia a Coltibuono and the owner Roberto Stucchi Prinetti gave us a tour of their 100 % organic winery and winemaking facility.
