Sprezzatura is the art of being elegant, stylish or fashionable almost without effort - it's what Italy is famous for! My name is Jenner Southerland, owner of Vivace Gourmet Personal Chef Services. I am what Florentines call a "Returner". While I could travel all over the world, Tuscany holds a special place in my heart and I keep coming back. You are cordially invited to join me to experience beautiful Florence and Tuscany as a traveler, not a tourist. Sprezzatura! is an upscale Boutique Tour that takes place once a year and combines art, food and wine for a unique experience designed for people that usually don't enjoy large tours! To get the most out of this boutique tour experience, the group size is limited to 10 travelers.
Utilizing the wonderful friendships and business networks I've built over the years in Tuscany, Sprezzatura! Boutique Tour was created to give you an exclusive experience balancing private group day trips, with one home base and personal exploring time in beautiful Tuscany. The focus is on fostering an appreciation for locally produced food and wine through supporting family owned businesses, wineries and Agriturismos. Because of our small group status, we are able to get off the beaten path for private tours and wine tastings in some of the most beautiful locations. This tour is relaxed and flexible; for the person who wants to be a traveler, not a tourist!
" 5 Star tour. Everything was well thought out and well planned. Hotel was fantastic including the continental breakfast. Obviously the small group approach (not on a bus tour with dozens of other guests) was critical to my enjoyment. We loved the variety of wineries that we visited. From the large corporate to the smaller family run operations (which were our favourite - especially Giuseppe). The choices that you made for us to visit were fantastic! We also enjoyed both the welcoming dinner and the goodbye dinner - both were amazing experiences. Hugely appreciated our driver, Marco, and the personalized service he provided. He was amazing. Foodie tour and David's Museum was a very pleasant addition to this tour.
I greatly appreciated your professionalism and lovely personality. Thank you so much for making our trip of a lifetime spectacular!! "
