Le Baccanti Corporate came to be in 1999 in London, the brainchild of Filippo Bartolotta, “grapetrotter” with contagious enthusiasm and boundless love for excellent food and wine. After many years in the United States and England, he and Vanessa Held decided to return to Tuscany, to their native city of Florence, to found the Le Baccanti Tours, specialized in incentive trips, team-building and entertainment events based on wine, food, and art.
