A Thanksgiving in Tuscany

Italian Culinary Expertise Paired with an Unforgettable Autumn Abroad.

Tuscany is a dream in autumn: infused with the scent of harvesting vineyards and vibrant truffle season recipes, yet still warm enough to dine al fresco. And come late November, Holiday markets light up Florence’s piazzas, with authentic German delicacies and twinkling lights. If you’re exploring new ways to celebrate Thanksgiving with friends and family this year, Tuscany holds an international culinary appeal that dreams are made of. Situated in the hills of Chianti, the aroma of harvesting grapes carries up to our villas and a Cuvée Thanksgiving spread is perfected by our beloved Tuscan Experience Curator, Francesco, who skillfully gathers regional goods from local artisans and markets, including the property’s own garden for an Italian-inspired authentic Thanksgiving feast.

Below, Tuscan-sourced Thanksgiving experiences from our villas in Chianti Classico.

Look to your chef to create the authentic culinary masterpiece your taste buds are craving!

Taste Truffle Season

For over 50 years the celebration of gourmet white truffles is the best time of the year to taste traditional recipes using the region’s “crown jewels”. In the charming town of San Miniato, this special annual festival inspires tourists and locals alike to participate in truffle hunting, tastings and pairings, and buying traditional Tuscan products from the open-air market stalls.
