A Wine and Food Experience in Southern Tuscany

February 19, 2013 -

This May, the idyllic Maremma hosts a number of eno-gastronomic, cultural and sports events.

Tuscany is not only about mass tourism in historic towns like Florence, Pisa and Siena. The southern part of this famous region, also known as Maremma Tuscany, holds a number of surprises and is the ideal location for those wishing to enjoy some privacy and tranquility with a number of travel options at their fingertips.

The Maremma is a striking land that stretches between the beaches of the Mediterranean Sea and Tuscany’s rolling hills. Activities here go from bathing and scuba diving in the crystal-clear sea, to visiting charming coastal towns or medieval hamlets in the countryside, to enjoying outdoor sports like horse riding and golf, and much more.

The Maremma is particularly renowned for its culinary and wine traditions, which it will celebrate in the week from the 13th to the 19th of May 2013 with the Maremma Wine & Food Shire. Food festivals and wine tastings will take place in different towns, and the general public will be able to appreciate the aspects that symbolize this area: quality and eco-sustainability.

This culinary event takes place within the larger Maremma Festival, which promotes local culture and sports as well. Therefore, the month of May in the Maremma Tuscany has a busy calendar of events, including boat races, handicrafts exhibitions, marching bands, and sports activities such as the “Discover Maremma” Pro Am that will take place in the Argentario Golf Club on May 20th.

If you would like to boost your wine and food experience in southern Tuscany, the luxury Argentario Resort Golf & Spa offers the “Chef for a day” package: prepare a Tuscan dish with executive chef Emiliano Lombardelli, taste local wines that have been specifically selected by the sommelier to match your culinary creation, and enjoy a delicious dinner in the Dama Dama Restaurant (rates from € 1000 for 4 nights in a double room).
