Here we are! Tomorrow the great wine event "Wine Town" will start: several historical buildings will open their courts for 2 days. People can enter to taste some of the best wines in Tuscany and Italy.
Besides the tasting there will be live music, events for Kids, art and many interesting events (Theather, Dance, Chocolate Awards).
How does it works? you can buy a winecard for 15 euros: you will receive a glass and 5 points that give you the possibility to try 5 different wines. When you finish the "points" you can charge again your card.

This is the map with the 3 areas and places where to go:
I saw many girls with their high heels wandering from a place to another. For once it seemed to me like it was New Year's Eve. Streets were crowdy and you could hear music everywhere.
Here are some Patrizia Pepe fans in queue in front of the store.
Even if I didn't buy anything it was fun to be there dressed up with my Scervino bag and Ferragamo shoes, and enjoy the atmosphere. And to watch the looks of other girls walking in via Tornabuoni.
From Thursday 20 September to Saturday 13 October at Grand Hotel Minerva, Florence there will be this special food event. Fried, grilled or sautéed porcini mushrooms; Caesar’s mushroom salad; verdino and dottato figs; Italia, strawberry and globe grapes. These are just some of the products accompanying the classic Florentine steak, duck, wild boar or pappardelle. A festival for rediscovering traditional flavours and recipes, and experimenting with the sometimes bold combinations of chef Sandro Pedica. Traditional dishes: salame (sausage) and figs, pappardelle with porcini mushrooms, Mugellan potato ravioli with wild boar ragout, charcoal-grilled Florentine T-bone steak with grilled porcini mushrooms. Creative interpretations: porcini mushroom cheese cake, verdino fig muffins with Tuscan ham, porcini mushroom cappuccino with poppy seed puff pastry for dipping. All of this "seasoned" with a view of Alberti’s facade for the Church of Santa Maria Novella and the whole square.
In addition to a generous menu of 27 dishes to choose from, Autumn on the Table offers:
Promo-Dinner: 2 courses to choose from for € 29.50, including mineral water and coffee, excluding wine.
