This tour combines one of the most beautiful regions in Italy with the loveliest time of day for a memorable wine-tasting experience. Meet your professional driver and guide in front of the National Library( piazza Cavalleggieri, 1) and set off in an air-conditioned minivan along the Via Chiantigiana scenic route. Enjoy the views as you travel through a landscape of cypress trees, vineyards and charming villages tucked into the rolling hills.
Your first stop is the well-preserved medieval village of Greve-in-Chianti, where you’ll have a chance to stretch your legs with a stroll around the historic town square and browse local shops. Continue on with a photo stop at lovely Montefioralle before arriving at your main destination, a family-run vineyard known for its excellent wines. Learn about traditional production methods on a cellar tour, and taste four different wines including Chianti Classico and other Super Tuscans.
The tasting is scheduled to coincide with the golden hour before sunset, so you can enjoy world-class wines, along with a snack of bruschetta and cheese, while watching the honey-hued light settle over the vineyards. On the return drive to Florence, stop in the picturesque village of Badia a Passignano for more photos and a bit of local history. The 4-hour tour concludes with drop-off at the National Library in central Florence.
