After leaving central Florence by air-conditioned coach, journey into the beautiful Tuscan countryside with your guide. Travel past the olive groves, vineyards, and rolling hills of one of the most prestigious winemaking regions in the world.

Then, get to tasting—enjoy a glass of Chianti Classico, Chianti Reserve, Tuscan dessert wine, or a prominent white wine. Learn the complex characteristics of each from your guide while you taste.

Afterward, head to the medieval village of Greve, where the most important wine fair of the Chianti region is held each year. Explore the main square and peruse the local artisan shops.

Continue to a family-run winery. Take a guided tour of the cellars from the winemaker before heading to the garden, where a tasting of wines and local products are waiting for you.

Then make your way to Castellina, a hilltop village characterized by its large fortress and Etruscan settlements. Stroll past the medieval street of Via delle Volte and explore the local shops and squares before making your way back to Florence with your guide.

Traveler Tips


Give more time in Castilla, the parking is far, and only the walking distance to the Main Street you have to go back to the bus!!!
If your plan is to get drunk, you probably either want one of the more expensive wine tours, or supplement your intake in Greve.

Good afternoon trip.
fahad_k, Aug 2022
Great tour with good value. Our tour guide was very informative. We saw three sites in 6 hours. Very chill and fun
I wouldn't book again.
Matt_M, Aug 2022
The vineyards themselves were nice and tasted some nice wine (only red wine). However the tour itself is not worth the money in my opinion. Here are the reasons why: - you couldn't hear anything the tour guide said on the bus so that was pointless even though we sat towards the front - the first vineyard was nice, however we expected to hear about the process of winemaking as promised, however that didn't happen so was a bit disappointed. Also didn't have much time after drinking the wine (10-15) minutes just enough to buy some products if you wanted to - we stopped in Greve for our second stop just in time for lunch, however the tour guide gave out different times for different people so some of us returned to the bus 10 minutes earlier then others and after the 10 minute wait we waited an additional 15 minutes as one of the families participating didn't turn up in time. In my opinion since everyone was an adult they should've just left them there as it stole from our time at the other vineyard. - we got to the second vineyard where there was more introduction about the wines, however it was super rushed. - we had our final stop in Castellina which was pointless as it was a 15 minute guided walk with not much information. I think it should've just been the 2 vineyards and possibly 1 additional stop for lunch, or better yet have lunch included for an additional cost. The tour guide should invest in a better microphone so people can actually hear her on the bus.
I really liked being able...
Aliza_J, Aug 2022
I really liked being able to see the country side and areas out side of Florence. As well the wine was great and so was the food.

Good trip had some snacks...
Mukund_G, Aug 2022
Good trip had some snacks with different types of wines during tasting over two different wineries. I could not have been able to visit such places by myself.
Must experiment
Grace_I, Aug 2022
The tour is on time and the bus is very comfortable. The staff, driver tour guides are approachable. The tour itself is well organized. The two winery where we’ve been too are both great!
A nice afternoon
Elizabeth_B, Aug 2022
A chance to taste the Chianti Classico was great. The bus trip can be quite long but was fine in the end, the 2 vineyard stops are lovely, however felt a bit rushed.
Chianti tour
Angeliki_T, Aug 2022
I loved the whole tour! We had the chance to visit two wineries and two beautiful villages. Our tour guide, Keiko, was wonderful! Funny, approachable and knowledgeable! I definitely recommend this tour 🙂 Angela, Greece
A really great experience
Eve_H, Aug 2022
We had a great afternoon! Keiko, our guide, was super- informed, sassy, witty and kept us all entertained (and on time!). Highly recommend this tour- a great way to get to see some lovely areas that aren't reachable by train. The wine tasting was great!
Excellent wineries
Emma_L, Jul 2022
The two wineries were lovely. The first one was a smaller winery. While there we tasted 3 different red wines and had some cheese and bread. At the second winery there was a short walk uphill so I would recommend wearing decent walking shoes. We then sat at a table and tried a number of breads, wines, some meat and cheeses with balsamic vinegar and olive oils. We also tasted 2 red wines and a sparkling rose. The tour left at 1pm and we arrived back just after 7pm. The bus was very well air conditioned and the guide was excellent, pointing out important landmarks along the journey. We were a group of 7 and had an excellent day overall. We found the tour to be great value.
Perfect day in the vinyards and small towns
SariAnne_P, Jul 2022
Perfectly planned, highly recommend. We had really good time and learned a lot about wines and wine making. We also stopped by at 2 beautiful towns and we enjoyed both of them. Guide Sandro is extremely friendly and helped to solve our problem. Driver Massimo was sweet too! Do not worry about the group size, it was about 50 people but it really doesn't matter at all.
Great trip!
Severin_L, Jul 2022

Wonderful time (well worth the money)
Madison_R, Jul 2022
Our tour guide was so energetic and accommodating. I would highly recommend this wine tour. My friend and I had such an amazing experience and we made a ton of new friends along the way.
Good wineries and cities
Toni_R, Jul 2022
Great tour. First winery was great. Second was good but the snacks were very good. Both wineries had great people. Tour of towns was very nice. Only 2 downsides: 1. Bus has zero outlets to charge phones. Other tour operators have them and it’s needed in todays day and age. They do have 2 USBs in the middle of the bus for the entire bus but it does not work. 2. The walk up to the 2nd winery was all loose dirt. They said you have to walk up in description but be prepared I had good walking shoes and it was tough due to the dirt and slope. I would recommend sneakers and no walking sandals.

Great way to experience Tuscany
Mary_S, Jul 2022
The excursions to towns were charming and the drive beautiful. The 1st winery was beautiful and the wine and snacks a great start. The sommelier at the 2nd winery was imparted great understanding of the wine we tried which made it even more enjoyable. Luisa was patient, and an enthusiastic guide. Would 100% recommend this tour.
Excellent

Such a beautiful trip visiting the Chanti winery’s and small villages. This was the highlight of our Italy trip!
Lovely day in the Chianti Hills!
Chaitanya_N, Jun 2022
Friendly tour guide and knowledgable staff at the vineyards. Nice to experience with other people from all over the world. Organised transport in an AC bus which was ideal as it was very hot on the day we went!
Easy tour , delicious wine and snacks
Julia_O, Jun 2022
This tour is great If you are looking for an easy way to see the country side and to try some local wines! The first vineyard is small and the second vineyard is bigger and at the bigger one the wine maker walks you through 3 different wines and it is a very traditional tasting. For someone who wanted the Italian wine tasting experience, is on a budget and is no wine expert, this tour was perfect!
CHIANTI REGION NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART
Nancy_V, Jun 2022
A mixed review! The wine tastings were okay. The stops in the local villages were not enough time to really do anything. At the 2nd winery we had to climb a very long steep hill that was difficult with no warning on a hot day. Not mentioned in any descriptions!☹ Do BETTER
