We moved from city to city in Italy and while we enjoyed our time in each city, Tuscany was definitely the highlight of our trip. We stayed at Villa Dievole, a private eight hundred acre vineyard estate nestled in the Tuscan hills. They produce local Tuscan Dievole wines and Chianti Classico and on our first day,¬†jumped on an opportunity to partake in a wine tasting tour and sampled their local wines as well as toured their vineyard and wine cellars. That same night Anthony and I enjoyed a 5-course tasting dinner of local Tuscan dishes each complimented by a different Dievole wine. We were in a full induced coma shortly after.
The next day was dedicated to one thing only- relaxation. We slept in, sat and read in the terrace all afternoon with a glass of their finest rose wine and just before the sunset, we went for a very long walk in the vineyard and lavender lined road around the villa. I put on a crisp white dress that night and celebrated our last night with a candlelight dinner in one of their cellars.
