Wine in Tuscany
ADULT STUDY ABROAD
Four Weeks in Tuscany
Sojrn’s Wine in Tuscany month abroad unfolds at a leisurely pace. With more free time than our two-week Sojrn, the four-week fully immersive stay is ideal for travelers who work remotely and want to feel like a true local. You’ll experience four weeks in Siena, one of the best-preserved medieval towns in the world.
Two to three weekly planned activities, workshops, or social gatherings designed to give you a deeper understanding of wine, from how it’s made to how to taste and appreciate it. This is a true slow-travel experience that offers some structure but leaves most of each week open for independent exploration and flexible work time.
