Chianti Half-Day Wine Tour 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 historic 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 characteristics of each from your 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. Take 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.

This was a GREAT tour! We got to try the typical wines from the region and olive oils and balsamic vinegars. Finding the meeting location was a little confusing, but this was totally worth it. Highlight of our time in Florence!

Great tour especially with our guide Keiko. There were nice wineries that we went to plus the tiny towns that was so nice and fascinating. Worth the value. We will recommend this tour to friends.

Excellent. The two wineries were very different, so we got contrasting experiences. There are little snacks provided as well. The tour included two short stops in small towns in Chianti. The scenery is amazing. You also learn about olive oil and balsamic vinegar. There were about 40 people on my tour. Was my first wine tour and I thought it was a great value.

This was fantastic, got to sample many wines from the Chianti region. The tour guide was very knowledgable about Florence and the region around it. By far one of the best experiences we had in Italy!

Wonderful and comprehensive tastings and accompaniments, the hosts at each winery were humorous and detailed in their information. The tour went significantly over time, but i was okay with this.
