What You Can Expect

Chianti Region Wine-Tasting and Dinner Half-Day Trip from Florence

Chianti

On your afternoon tour you'll visit an ancient Tuscan town and one of Chianti's most renowned castle-farm wine-growing estates. Here, you'll receive insights into the local wine-growing traditions and sample three prestigious wines: Chianti Classico, Chianti Reserve and white wine. The wines are accompanied by local traditional snacks.

You will end the day with a traditional Tuscan dinner (accompanied by excellent Chianti wine) in the magical atmosphere of an old village among the Tuscan hills. Dinner will be held in the open (weather permitting), so please wear suitable clothing. If you're keen to enjoy the most famous Tuscan meat dish of all, then upgrade and enjoy Bistecca alla Fiorentina! This T-Bone Florentine steak is rich, flavorsome, and always served rare, simply dressed with little more than olive oil, rosemary and salt.

The tours are carried out in different areas of the Chianti region, and the trip from Florence to Chianti is approximately 40 minutes each way.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

What a brilliant day out!! From the views you get to see travelling from one place to another, to the wonderful little villages you get to visit, it was fantastic. The wine tour around the castle was extremely enjoyable and informative and the wine tasting was of course wondeful.
I would recommend this tour to anyone who enjoys wine and wants to see the beautiful countryside of Tuscany!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

Booked this tour months in advance and was not disappointed. Everything was perfect and together with a coach load of people from Aberdeen to Adelaide my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.
The guide was excellent and very informative and the format of the trip well designed and conducted at a pace suitable for all age groups.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this trip to anyone who has an interest in Italian wine, countryside, food and culture in general.
