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.

What a fantastic tour. What a pleasure to meet our Tour guide Luccia she is a true professional, knowledgable and enthuastic she made us all feel like we're a special part of her family. Luccia made the day informative interesting and fun, and made us fall in love with Chianti. Luccia gave so much information about the region and the history. She talked about the history of Tuscany and Florence and the surrounding areas, she talked about other places of interest to see and how to get there. Wish we could book Luccia on all our tours. We wish Luccia every success and thank you for wonderful tour. Helen and Ian Australia

Enjoyed the tour so much, I would do it again. Rather relaxing and refreshing. Tour guide was humorous despite the slight language accent. Wine stops, in particular the 2nd stop was great. Presenter was entertaining and the wine and cheese were great!

Great tour! Wonderful wine tastings. Our tour guide was friendly and informative and the hosts at the wineries were fantastic. We learned a lot about the Chianti region and the different wines and olive oil from that area. I would definitely recommend this tour - amazing value!

The 2nd vineyard is where it is at.

There you can get some really great wines that are hard to get elsewhere.

We really enjoyed the Chianti wine tour. Both wineries where beautiful, fun and interesting to visit. The wine tastings and parings with cheese and balsamic were delicious. We would highly recommend the tour to other people visiting Italy.

We missed our original date for this tour due to a flight mix up. I emailed hoping for a change of date, not expecting too much but they changed them no problem!
Tour itself was excellent, great guide, lovely wines(and plenty of them) and great views.
Really recommend.

Absolutely outstanding value for money - can't recommend it highly enough. The wineries we went to were fantastic - the wine was really delicious and the wine makers gave lots of great and interesting information. Getting to have little bits of food with the wine tastings was also a great addition. We considered doing some of the more expensive tours but were glad we didn't because this one was so good.

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.
