“Pierluigi Tolaini bought a one-way ticket to Canada when he was twenty years old. When he returned to Tuscany it was for making wine. Of the highest quality. Join us on a journey between Tuscany and Canada. Pierluigi Tolaini was only 20 years old when he left Tuscany for Canada in 1956. -He had bought a one-way ticket, says daughter Lia Tolaini when we meet at the five-star Hotel Villa Cora in Florence.The Tolaini family is one of many examples of Italians who sought luck in America, and succeeded. Pierluigi Tolaini started working as a truck driver, opened his own company, eventually becoming one of North America’s largest transport companies.”

BKWine Magazine’s Åsa Johansson tells the story: Tolaini – back to the roots in Chianti Classico.

Come on one of our wine tours to Tuscany to discover some of the best wines in this beautiful region.
