An unforgettable journey in which your senses will be led from the sun-drenched cocoa plantations to the enveloping aroma of chocolate through an exclusive, exciting path.

Much like what happens in Tim Burton’s film “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” you’ll immerse in a MAGIC ATMOSPHERE entering the gates of a former cast iron foundry with the charme of an old-fashioned laboratory.

Amedei creates harmony between ingredients, textures and flavors, producing chocolates with unique aroma profiles.

An all-Italian know-how in which elegance, simplicity and passion for chocolate blend together generating tastes that evoke the magic of the land where they are created: Tuscany.

Then an astonishing chocolate-cocoa based classic Tuscan LUNCH in an historic restaurant, in pairing with wines from Wine Spectator Top 100.
