Market Gourmet Food Walk –How it works

Our gourmet food expert encounters the group at their hotel or a local bar, and after a quick espresso (what better way to start a gourmet walk), the group heads to a charming local food market where they will explore the local delicacies together. The Italian marketplace is a vibrant, colorful place full of enticing smells and a myriad of hidden treasures your gourmet guide is ready to reveal.

Tripe, prosciutto, Parmesan cheese, balsamic vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, kale, tomatoes, pumpkins, panforte, biscotti, Chianti Classico, Barolo, Amarone.

This isn’t a magic potion – it is the ingredient list for an unforgettable morning!

We can fully customize your Food Market Walk to your guests’ needs and what you hope to accomplish and ensure that the group has a wonderful time. We are happy to arrange for group transfers in luxury minibuses or to have the group be met at your hotel or convention center or another convenient meeting spot.

Masterpiece for the Senses Corporate Events


More than just a wine tasting evening – an event that stimulates the senses and evokes emotions

A thrilling journey through Siena, discovering her masterpieces of art and top wines perfect as part of a Travel Incentive trip

High quality entertainment that captures the imagination and involves guests on many levels

Team Building as you’ve never seen it before – A fascinating interplay between what is beautiful and what is delicious

How Masterpiece for the Senses works – Team Building event or simply an amazing evening for friends

Le Baccanti’s expert leader takes guests on a tasting journey of three important Senese wines, accompanying these delicious wines with the inspiration and beauty of masterpieces of art, poetry and music. The guests, comfortably seated around elegant tables, are invited to participate in this fascinating interplay between beauty and taste as they experience the wine through their own emotional reactions to the taste, sights and sounds of the masterpieces. To further heighten the senses, there is also a playful tasting game to go beyond just wine and further explore the taste of beauty through artisanal food delights of Siena.

Why choose Masterpiece for the Senses for your group of colleagues, business partners, museum patrons or friends?

Masterpiece for the Senses is an activity that has an instant emotional impact, no matter what level of enogastronomic experience your guests may have. Participants find themselves totally caught up in the rich atmosphere of magnificent sights, sounds, tastes and images of Siena’s incredible masterpieces both artistic and for the palate. The participants are enriched with this profound but also entertaining experience presented in an original and stimulating way. The event harmoniously blends the joy of tasting great wine with the contemplation of amazing works of art. The hands-on participation of guests, stimulating them through their senses, brings each guest into direct contact with il Bello and il Buono through this playful mix of culture and entertainment.

Where does the Masterpiece for the Senses take place?

For each event, we carefully work with you to choose the perfect location that will create a magical atmosphere to envelop your guests during their sensory journey. The dining room of a palace, the historical center of a small medieval village, a prestigious winery cellar, and an internationally renowned museum of art, are just a few of the places we have held these events in the past both in Italy and abroad – much to our guests delight!
