We invite you to savour the real flavours of Tuscany with a series of other activities you can include in the programme for your stay at Il Borro. Our experts will guide you in sensory experiences tied to the flavours of our land, and fascinate you with the secrets of their work.
Il Borro has always been a prized destination for lovers of Tuscan culinary excellence as expressed by Osteria del Borro and our Executive Chef, Andrea Campani. Our cooking shows and Tuscan cooking classes will take you on a gastronomic journey through the region and the ingredients that make up the best traditional recipes.
Young guests can also take part in special children’s cooking classes where they will learn to make pizza and biscuits under the watchful eye of an adult.
Accompanied by experts, you will see the different steps that turn simple grapes into fine wines and the vats, barrels and barriques that make this possible. A special tour, which ends with tasting our wines and savouring the result of a hundred-year history.
The tour also includes a visit to the “Vino & Arte” gallery.
Truffle hunting in Tuscany is a unique experience. Deep in the countryside around the Estate, accompanied by expert hunters and guided by specially-trained dogs, you can take part in an enthralling search for this precious gift of Nature.
Truffle hunts take place ten minutes from the Estate and last for about 2 hours. From 2 to 40 people can take part.
