Palazzo Antinori, the Antinori palace, the family residence in Florence, is located in Piazza Antinori, just a short distance away from the Arno river, The Duomo Cathedral, The Uffizi Museum, Davide Gallery, Old Bridge.
An architectural jewel of the Renaissance, it numbers some 50 rooms and has been the residence and offices of the Antinori Marquises since 1506. Today the Antinori palace is not merely a prestigious edifice, headquarters of a winemaking firm, but also the symbol of a centuries-old family history, traditions which have become a concrete modern reality.
You will need to purchase a starter kit, consisting of 6 ISO tasting glasses in a carry bag (45 Euros) unless you have already purchased one from us for a previous course. You will be given the kit on the first day of the course and they are yours to keep.
Everyone appreciates having their own professional wine tasting glasses so you can practice at home and then bring your own glasses to the course.
