Not only the best winemakers but also the best production in Tuscan cuisine are waiting for you. Terre di Toscana will be held again at UNA Hotel, on the promenade of Lido di Camaiore. A modern and elegant environment that allows you to feel the delicate sea breeze.

Tastings will start on Sunday, March 7, from 12 to 7 pm. Admission fee is € 20 and the tickets include a tasting cup and a nice cup holder pocket. The program presents also a large dinner (h 21) with winemakers and their wines that costs € 50. Free tasting of over 150 labels representing all the manufacturers present are worth the price…

Tastings will go on also on Monday, March 8, from 11 to 6 pm. Lido di Camaiore is a pretty small tourist centre in Versilia. It is part of the territory of Camaiore, a nice town founded by Romans. In this season Versilia offers warm temperatures and low prices.
