The Wine Lounge
With our new Wine Lounge, we will bring the wines and charm of Castiglion del Bosco to the heart of beautiful Florence, which is the cradle of the Renaissance as well as the vital core of Tuscan wine and culinary excellences.
We look forward to welcoming you to the renaissance frescoed room (*) located in one of the hidden gems of Florence; Palazzo Capponi, which is one of the most beautiful and historic buildings in Florence and is a private home not otherwise open to the public.
(*) Upon availability.
Creating wine is a true art, where man and nature work together to give life to a unique and unrepeatable ‘works of art’ with each vintage. It is precisely the art of wine making, the fil rouge that unites the tasting experience at The Wine Lounge with the visit to the Salvatore Ferragamo Museum, dedicated to the art and life of its founder. Thanks to a collaboration between the two entities, guests of The Wine Lounge will have privileged access to the Museum and the current exhibition “Women in Balance”.
You will enjoy a great introduction to the wine region of Montalcino and its world renowned Brunello wines. This experience includes a guided tour of the stunning Poccetti fresco room (upon availability), followed by a tasting of four different types of wines paired with a selection of Tuscan cold cuts and local cheeses, bread, as well as our homemade EVO and honey.
Duration 60 min.

The tasting is paired with a selection of Tuscan cold cuts and local cheeses, bread, as well as our homemade EVO and honey. Duration 90 min.
