What You Can Expect
At the Medieval castle of Montefioralle, stroll around this enchanting castle and admire the breathtaking scenery with incredible vistas of the Chianti, and appreciate the slower pace of life that hasn't changed for centuries as you stroll around the streets of this enchanting hill town.
At Greve in Chianti, the principal town of the Chianti, you'll have some free time to explore this friendly market town (Market Day is Saturday) with the opportunity to do an optional wine tasting or olive oil tasting while in the town. Before lunch, you will visit a local vineyard to learn more about the wine-making in the Chianti and to enjoy your first wine tasting of the day. You'll enjoy an optional lunch at a delightful Trattoria (not included) with undisturbed panoramic views and delicious regional cuisine.
In the afternoon, continue your tour of the Chianti visiting Medieval hill towns and their fortresses that once formed the league of Chianti in the 13th-century where you'll enjoy more incredible views of the countryside.
To celebrate your day trip of the Chianti wine region you will visit another noted vineyard for your second wine tasting. And while sitting back savoring the subtle textures and tones of the wine, contemplate the beautiful countryside that has been your constant companion during the day.
Excellent. Loved the terra cotta factory. Nice variety. Excellent tour guide(Lorenzo)
Our Small Group Chiati Wine Region Day Trip was outstanding! It was definitely one of the best tours I have ever taken. We had a terrific driver and guide-Tiberio. He was very informative and told us many interesting facts about Tuscany. I especially liked that this tour included a visit to a pottery factory, medieval castle and market town as well as two wineries. The only negative for me was I was expecting lunch to be on our own. Instead it was at the first winery and was a sampling of cheese,salami and prosciutto shared by two persons.
I did not.know that was our lunch and we paid 15euros each for it. Still having said that, it was a fantastic trip and we thoroughly enjoyed it.
