Villa San Michele

Food & Wine

Get a taste of the true Tuscan countryside on a wine tasting day-trip to a rustic Chianti farmhouse. Villa San Michele can arrange an outing to Azienda Vinicola Capannelle, recognised by connoisseurs for the exceptional quality of its wines and olive oil, and its innovative growing and blending techniques. 

Surrounded by vineyards and cypress trees, you can enjoy an exclusive tour, wine tastings and lunch, followed by a swim in the infinity pool or a stroll thorough the estate.

The Vivoli ice-cream parlour is one of the most famous in the world—and rightly so! It has been creating its delicious “gelato” masterpieces in Florence since 1930. 

Exclusively for guests of Villa San Michele, Vivoli will open the doors to its historic gelateria for an unforgettable experience in ice-cream making. You will also meet members of the family, who will recount anecdotes about their fascinating history, followed by a mouth-watering, multi-flavoured ice-cream tasting session.

A dream visit for any chocoholic, this workshop at Andrea Bianchini’s Bottega del Cioccolato is a veritable feast for the senses. 

During a two-hour course, you will learn how creation becomes art and art turns into exquisite chocolate. A fun-filled, truly delectable event. 
The course is not available on Sundays.  

We advise reserving in advance. Please contact our Concierge.
