Experience Authentic Tuscan Culinary Experiences with Montemaggio Cooking Classes!
At Montemaggio, not only do we offer amazing wine tour, tastings and degustations but we are pleased to share with you an amazing and authentic Tuscan Culinary Experience and Wine Pairing. We have a chef in-house that will assist our estate guests in learning how to prepare traditional Tuscan dishes while you are visiting Chianti Classico area. You will experience an incredible mix of sensations of flavor during our cooking classes. If you enjoy Italian food and are interested in learning the art of cooking, this is the perfect fit for you!
CULINARY COOKING CLASS
You will cook under the expert guidance of our chef in a very friendly, welcoming and informal atmosphere. The cooking class will last approximately two hours, but the duration will largely depend on your chosen menu.
While we are finished up the final preparations from your cooking class (making your lunch) you will have an opportunity to do a wine tour with an explanation of the working process in the vineyard and in the cellar, walk through the garden and view of the vegetable garden. The degustation of our best wines will be incorporated into your cooking class and lunch. The attention we give to the quality of what we produce is transferred throughout the selection of the products we use for our cooking classes. We only choose fresh and local organic products. We select from our own vegetable garden, when able and when the season permits. Otherwise, we have a number of local partners where we buy some of our organic products because we share the same philosophy, passion and love for our land.
At the end of the class, you will eat what you have prepared in a wonderful setting on the estate, and relish in your culinary skills!

CULINARY EXPERIENCE FOR THE LITTLE ONES – NEW!
Imagine you can enjoy your extensive wine tour or degustation, and a lunch with your friends and family knowing that your children will be thoroughly enjoying themselves as well! We started to offer this culinary experience just for this reason. Your tiny members of your family can even enjoy the liberty of Tuscan countryside and learning a thing or two. We offer pasta-making workshops that will teach your children how to make paste from scratch and have fun in the process. If pasta isn’t something they adore, then cookies and Tuscan biscuits will surely be a hit!
€ 90 euro per person per hour (choose 1 or 2 hours)*
*We require at least 3 to 4 participants and children should be at least 5 years old.
Montemaggio is open Monday to Friday, during normal working hours (from 8am to 5pm). We are also open on weekends and festivities but only with prior appointment, so be sure to book your appointment or contact us with any questions or if you need help booking your wine tour, degustations or cooking experience.
