TUSCAN TABLE: MENU -  Spend days basking under the Tuscan sun, savoring delicious local cheeses, salami, fruit and bread, and sipping the region’s Chianti wines while surrounded by a panoramic tapestry of golden wheat fields, verdant green vineyards, and the silver-grey olive groves. Taking the time to gather with family and friends around the table is fundamental to the “Bella Vita” and certainly one of life’s simplest and truest pleasures.

A TUSCAN CHEESE BASKET - The designation Stagionato refers to more seasoned cheeses, made from ewe's milk. The aging imparts nutty and buttery notes to the cheeses.

Paglio is aged in straw, imparting the cheese with a pale yellow color, and a creamy goodness that pairs wonderfully with honey and jams.
