La Locanda del Prete is a small Bed and Breakfast, owned and operated by the Innocenti family and located in Arcidosso, in the province of Grosseto, Tuscany, Italy. This is an authentic Italian country inn, a place where locals as well as visitors, gather to eat, share a glass of wine or grappa (a digestive aperitif) and chat. Your host and wine leader (fluent in English), a native son of Tuscany, sommelier in training of fine Italian wines and master chef specializing in "La Cucina Povera Toscana", will accompany you on your journey along Tuscany's famous "Road of Wines" where you will discover the finest wine estates and sommeliers and learn the art of wine-food pairings (three visits and tastings daily). You will also experience quaint family run cellars for tastings and be immersed in the countryside of Southern Tuscany and also help you learn the basics of wine pairings, the “must-have knowledge” for any good host or hostess! Meals will be planned according to the days wine selections, from antipasto right up to desserts.
