The one day the sun really did shine in Tuscany, we were fortuitously booked in for a wine tasting tour and lunch at Avignonesi. It was seriously good.
After a tour around the vineyard and the cellars (apparently the black mould on the walls is all part of the required environment and not dangerous to your health, eek!), we sat down to the most beautiful view to eat our lunch.
The food was incredible. I tried to opt for the ‘lighter’ of the options for each course but there’s only so much you can do. 4 courses (plus wine) is always going to take its toll and lets be honest, the world’s creamiest goats cheese isn’t really that light….
The wine was amazing too (obviously), the highlight being a very small glass of €310 per bottle Vin Santo. YUM. We rolled back to the hotel very happy and with very full bellies….
