Dunowen House and Villa Burlamacchi

Since travelling to Tuscany in February and experiencing the most amazing immersive adventure ourselves, we’ve been dying to share this with you. We are thrilled to unveil an unmatched culinary adventure in an unforgettable location.

You will be warmly hosted by our gorgeous friend Francesca Burlamacchi and her team in her majestic hill-top Villa Burlamacchi, which has been in her family since the 1500’s.

Villa Burlamacchi

Hands-on Cooking Classes

Over the course of a week, you will learn how to make your own silky pasta, ravioli, gnocchi, authentic wood-fired pizza, sauces and desserts under the tutelage of Villa Burlamacchi’s resident Head Chef, Attilio Petrella.

Hands on, small classes

Award winning wineries

We will also visit a selection of stunning boutique Tuscan wineries for tours and tastings. These vineyards have been carefully chosen to introduce you to some of the most exciting wines in the region.

In each of these vineyards, you will be guided through their vines, shown the harvesting and wine production techniques, tour the cellars then finish each visit with informative tastings of wines, all paired with local seasonal produce.
