Tuscan Auteur


“It is important to have a wine guide who knows her vines. The founder of Tuscan Auteur is one of the best…Her tailor-curated events include Brunello pairings with dinner in a 13th century, candlelit chapel (deeply romantic), pre-release barrel tastings and access to some of the most highly rated vineyards in the country.”

“My wife and I just came back from a two-week Wine and Food trip through Italy and we were lucky enough to get connected with Lauren. She is solid-gold! She was wonderful to work with and with just a few emails, transformed a logistical nightmare into a 5-star, no hassle tour of some of the BEST wineries and food that Italy has to offer. We felt like VIPs the entire time and created so many memories that we can't wait to get back. She's super well connected, knows exactly where to go and has great taste. Every winery was a special experience and every restaurant blew us away. Cannot say enough about how much working with her transformed our trip from ordinary to EPIC.”

“Traveling and tasting through Montalcino with you made for a culinary adventure and unique wine country experience I will never forget. Your extensive knowledge of collectible Italian wines not only enhanced my trip, but your continuing consultation has been so helpful in the ongoing development of my personal wine collection.”

 “I wanted to personally thank you for all of the planning you did for our wonderful trip to Italy.   It was such an immense pleasure to have met you and spent the time with you. Your knowledge of the land, the history, the wine, the relationships you have built with the people and your expertise and personal touch made our time with you so intimate and truly an “Italian experience” that we will remember forever.  You made us feel like family.”
