With the Italian and Wine-harvest course, you’ll have a “full immersion” experience in Tuscan agricultural life, learning the language, eating well, and drinking excellent red wine in a friendly and rural atmosphere.

A trip to the country, a good lunch, a glass of wine, and the thrill of learning about the production of the best wines in the world – an extremely rich and unusual offer for your holiday in Italy.
