This was by far our favorite tour. Our winery hostess, Nadia, was not only informative but very entertaining with her personal stories of working in the wine and grape business. We had so much fun learning about Classico Chianti and tasting the winery's selection. Our dinner at La Toppa in San Donato was also delicious. The setting, hospitality, and weather were everything you can image for this region of Italy. This tour is a great break from the hectic cities of Florence and Rome.
Outstanding experience. My boys loved meeting Alexandro and being taken around by him. He showed us breathtaking country side, took us to a terrific winery and also to meet folks he knew who made wine and balsamic vinegar. The whole day was one sumptuous feast, and he let it develop as it did. We spent more time in one place and so we adjusted the itinerary. It was a warm memorable introduction to the Chianti region.
Our driver, Allesandro, was simply outstanding. Worth a try to request him. The tour of Castell di Querceto was just right and and our young hostess was lovely and well informed. As for the tasting three very "shallow" pours with one of the three being a dessert so, for me it doesn't really count. Good stuff, but it would have been an appropriate gester to ask if anyone wanted a fuller taste of their favorite. If I could do it again we would have bought a bottle to sit and drink right there. In any event, it was a good experience and Allesandro made it outstanding.

Driver was excellent, tailoring the return trip to our special wishes. The vineyard chosen (DieVole) was an awesome experience.
It was an extremely disappointing day, comprising of three glasses of wine a quick whizz around the castle. Another couple turned and paid less than us, and received a free bottle of wine as well as the same tour of the castle. I would have much preferred the bottle of wine to the three glasses of wine.
