Chianti Region Wine Tasting Half-Day Trip from Florence

Sample Chianti wine on a Tuscan wine tour!

After being picked up from your hotel in central Florence, journey into the beautiful Tuscan countryside with your guide. Travel past the olive groves, vineyards and rolling hills of one of the most prestigious winemaking regions in the world before arriving in Chianti Fiorentino.

Stop for the visit to a distinguished castle and wine estate, where you’ll tour the historical cellars. Learn the winemaker’s secrets as you see where the grapes are crushed, and where the wine is matured and bottled.

Then, get to tasting! Enjoy a glass of Chianti Classico, Chianti Reserve, Tuscan dessert wine or a prominent white wine. Learn the complex characteristic of each from your expert guide while you taste.

Afterward, head to the medieval village of Greve, where the most important wine fair of the Chianti region is held each year. Explore the main square and peruse the local artisan shops.

Continue to a family-run winery located in the Sienese area of the Chianti Classico. Soak up a guided tour of the cellars from the winemaker before heading to the garden, where a tasting of four wines and local products will be waiting for you.

Then make your way to Castellina, a hilltop village characterized by its large fortress and Etruscan settlements. Stroll past the medieval street of Via delle Volte and explore the local shops and squares before making your way back to Florence with your guide.

It was a great time- great tour guides, great food, and great wine of course. Had about 10 samples of wine, it was way too much for me! However, it was great and I recommended this tour to my classmates. I thought it was definitely worth the price.

Debra was an amazing tour guide. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who enjoys wine, even if only a little. My wife is a much bigger wine lover than I am, however I still found this to be a great trip. The first winery was very generous with their pours and wine was priced very well if you wanted to purchase it. Shipping is a little expensive, but there's nothing you can do about that65 euros for 6 bottles plus the cost of the wine. Bus ride was great and so was seeing the small towns in between even though it was only a very short stop. The views are also amazing!

This was the best wine tour I have ever been on! The guide was knowledgeable, the wineries we visited were excellent and beautiful. Driving through the countryside was breathtaking. It was great to get out of the city of Florence to adventure in the vineyards and small towns. The best spent money of my trip!
