What You Can Expect

Chianti Half-Day Wine Tour from Florence

Sample Chianti wine on a Tuscan wine tour!

After being picked up from your hotel in central Florence, 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 before arriving in Chianti Fiorentino.

Stop for the visit to a distinguished castle and wine estate, where you’ll tour the historic cellars. Learn the winemaker’s secrets as you see where the grapes are crushed, and where the wine is matured and bottled.

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 located in the Sienese area of the Chianti Classico. Take a guided tour of the cellars from the winemaker before heading to the garden, where a tasting of four wines and local products will be 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.

I LOVED this tour. we had a great guide but forget her name... Only thing I would take a star away for would be that we went with a nearly all American group... I went on my trip to get away from Americans... but views, wine, and locals were amazing.

Great wine tour. We visited two wineries and two small towns. The drive and scenery were so beautiful.
Our tour guide was very friendly and informative. It was a major highlight of our trip to Italy.

What a wonderful experience this was! The day begins with meeting at a designated tour spot where the bus picks you up and takes you out into the Tuscan countryside. The views are second to none! You visit two different wineries with tastings and food pairings provided, then two quaint villages where you have the opportunity to shop around and enjoy the local culture. Fantastic experience, wonderful wine and a great day!

A fantastic day spent in this wonderful area filled with best wines, olive oils and balsamic vinegar. If you are looking for a great wine tour of Chianti region this tour wins hands down. Its very economical, comfortable and provides all that you wish for from a wine tour.
We loved both the wineries and the village stops in between.
Don't spend all your money in the first winery as the second one is a little expensive but stores some amazing products.

Great experience through the Tuscany countryside. It inspired us to rent a car from Florence a couple of days later and travel this area deeper on our own.
