A great intro to wine tour.
Florence to Greve in Chianti Tour with Wine Tasting Experience | mar 2020
Thanks to google maps and the "look for a fuscia jacket", we found the departure location easily. The bus was comfortable and full of younger people than us, but everyone was very respectable. The tour guide Renata was wonderful, friendly, helpful, and provided some information on Florence as we were driving out to the vineyards. Strongly suggest going to the bathroom before getting on the bus as the wineries only have a couple of bathrooms to use and you do not want to miss anything. I also strongly suggest bringing a bit of food and water on this tour to help if you are not a huge wine drinker. The first winery, Palagio, had a fabulous, friendly, audible guide who instructed us through the whole tour. This place provided quite a good amount of wine to taste in your glass which keeps getting refilled as you taste the various wines. They provided cheese and olive oil with cracker bread which was so good. We drove 30 minutes to the second winery and were toured by a kind, more gentle tour guide which didn't seem to keep people's attention as well but the wine was good, with less in the glass but I didn't mind that considering the generous amount I already had, and we were provided with some fennel flavoured crackers. A short drive from there to Greve, we walked to the "square" and bought a bit of food and coffee at Pasticceria Chianti which was decently priced. Back on the bus we had a nice and quiet one hour drive home in the dark. I thought it might have been good to start the tour earlier so we can drive home in a bit of light, but after the wine, everyone was good to chill. The driver is incredibly skilled, wow! Thank you for a very good tour.… Leer más
