My three passions, wine, food and photography, combine in a new venture – a Tuscan Wine Tour for Photographers.

Its taken the best part of a year to research and put together but I think the result is a fantastic and unique trip for October 2014. It takes in the beauty of Florence itself, visiting the very best wine bars and a wide variety of restaurants plus a trip out into the beautiful Tuscan countryside for vines, vineyards and vistas. An interest in photography and/or a passion for the local cuisine is all you need!

The tour will be limited to 6 participants. Cost is 2150E which covers accommodation, local transport, food, wines and as much as we could cram into the week. The full itinerary is detailed on the Tuscan Wine Tour for Photographers page but takes in some of my favourite, photographic locations – Sunday Brunch Se Sio on Arno and the , Mercato Centrale to name but two.

I do hope you can join us….

  • Guided walks through Florence taking in all the cultural highlights, the food markets and hidden treasures
  • Hands-on Food Photography workshop with Ilva Beretta
  • Informal, fun, wine and food tastings in Florence
  • Two Vineyard visits including an overnight stay and, weather permitting, a picnic amongst the vines
  • A fantastic Sunday Brunch with wide ranging views across the city skyline
  • Engage in all types of photography: HDR, street, travel, long exposure…
  • Italian speaking guides
