Don’t forget – we’re talking about your Tuscan wedding reception after all and I want you to enjoy your food in Italy on your wedding day!  Today we’ll be visiting a Tuscan winery, where for more than 900 years, wines of noble origin have been produced.

Welcome to Villa Dievole! This historic Villa is nestled in the depths of the Tuscan hills within easy reach of Siena, which makes it a perfect place to stay if you wish to tie the knot in Civil ceremony in Siena Town Hall or have a symbolic or religious blessing on the grounds of the Villa Dievole.

[Tweet “As you know Tuscan cuisine is a rustic one”] That why chefs at villa Dievole’s restaurant only use all organic ingredients, that came from local farms and the vegetable garden of the villa to prepare these wonderful dishes.

Together with Monika, who is a young and very talented chef at villa Dievole’s restaurant, who brought that modern touch to make your wedding reception food in Tuscany as close to perfection as possible, we’ve selected these traditional Tuscan dishes for your special Italian menu.
