What you'll do

We’ll meet in Florence and we’ll drive you-in a luxury van-through the countryside to show and describe you this area so close to Florence and still so wild and undiscovered.An area so rich of traditions where the Medici Family is originated from...you can still breath them in the air...Once we reach Scarperia-a small medieval village in the heart of Mugello- we stop at Poggio Medici golf course to play 18 hard and challenging holes.We’ll have a little break on the 9th hole with a light buvette lunch.But you’ve to wait till the 19th hole to have the special treat:a dinner with guided winetasting by a sommelier in a Reinassance villa belonged to the Medici family.You’ll taste only local foods and wines:4 dishes,4 wines.Mugello in Tuscany means,ravioli pasta filled with potatoes,soups,bread,cheese,chestnuts;Pinot noir and riesling wines!Poor and simple cuisine and different wines from rest of Tuscany. Of course after all this, we’ll drive you back in Florence and we’ll drop you off at your stay. You don’t need to have golf equipment, because we have it for you.

I booked this experience because I like to play golf wherever I travel, but actually I didn't know what to expect... I just had the perfect day. Eduardo and Caterina are so welcoming and have great passion in what they do. I know Tuscany well but I have never heard of Mugello. I had the opportunity to know a different Tuscany, undiscovered and less touristic. The golf course is so beautiful. Eduardo is a great caddy. The winetasting and dinner I had guided by Caterina made me feel like a real wine expert! Thank you!

Thank you Eduardo and Caterina, I really spent a great day! The golf course Poggio Medici is beautiful and challenging. Eduardo assisted me the whole time and let me discover so many things about Italian golf. Caterina is a great sommelier and very informative. I could taste only local and organic food paired with four different organic wines, unusual for Tuscany. So not only Chianti, but also a riesling, a Pinot Gris and Pinot noir. I have been explained by Caterina that only in this part of Tuscany (Mugello) is possible to grow these grapes! I suggest this experience to anyone!!!
