A great idea from the new tour operators’ association Pisa Eventi e Turismo (dear God people, though… get a decent website, keep it up to date and maybe slap some English on it! This one defeats the purpose…).
Every Thursday, people can participate in a wine tour to one of the wineries of the area of Terricciola. Few people know this wine region: Pisa and its territory are certainly not famous for wine. As a matter of fact, the area is still within the Chianti denomination and the wines produced in the area belong to the Chianti Colline Pisane DOC region.

Every week the tour takes people to a different winery, so it might be nice to go more than once. The tour is very reasonably priced: it only costs 45 euros per person, which includes transportation, a visit to a winery, wine tasting and a visit to a cheese producer (Caseificio L’Avvenire) and to a bakery (Panificio il Quadrifoglio in Terricciola). Here is the program:
- La Spinetta (May 19)
- Badia di Morrona (May 26)
- Fibbiano (June 2)
- Tenuta Podernovo (June 9)
- Castelvecchio (June 16)
- Pieve de’ Pitti (June 23)

A great opportunity to see a different corner of Tuscany and to discover the wines of the region of Pisa.
