Your 5-hour tour of the Chianti wine region in Tuscany starts with a hotel pickup in Siena a little before 2pm. When you’re picked up, hop aboard an air-conditioned vehicle with your small group as your guide drives you through the countryside. Take in the views along the way to the first winery.
Sample wine paired with complimentary snacks while you learn about this winery’s winemaking process. Your tour guide at the winery takes you to the cellars and tells you the secrets behind the types of wines they serve, including a popular Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.
After the first winery, the town of Monteriggioni is up on the agenda. Spend some free time wandering around the village or visit the castle if you choose (own expense). It’s been said that the cafes in the town also serve a delicious coffee if you’d like to get off your feet for a while.
Last up is another Tuscan winery. Here you can taste some more wine and also oil before getting back in your car fir the ride back to your hotel. You’ll get dropped off around 7pm.
