Chianti Half-Day Wine Tour from Florence

Sample Chianti wine on a Tuscan wine tour!

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 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.

It was very well done, for a half day trip we were gone 6 hrs, which made the tour more fun. Instead of cramming a lot in less time you had just enough. Coach was comfortable, driving was excellent and the hostess was fun and knowledgable. Would definitely recommend your service.

EXcellent tour. The Chianti region is beyond beautiful. We visited two wineries and in both places we tasted at least 3 wines and we learn a lot about them and the whole industry and history. We visited two small incredible villages,medieval, with a castle included and wonderful local atmosphere. I think it was the best tour we took. Highly recommended.

So much fun! Meeting for the tour was super easy - exactly how they described it. We then took an air conditioned bus this was key as we went in August to the first winery, which was beautiful! Upon entry, they gave us a choice between three different wines to try white, red or rose. We then visited their wine cellar, and then were taken upstairs for more tastings, paired with delicious cheese and olive oil toasts. After that, we traveled to a cute town, where we went to a little store that had a cheese room, as well as wine dispensers, similar to fountain drink dispensers you see at a fast food chain! That was neat, and every wine I had was delicious. We were also given a good chunk of time to just hangout and walk around the little town. The second winery we visited was on top of a big hill, so it was a bit of a windy route to get there a friend of mine got some motion sickness but it was worth it! That winery was very interesting and we sat at big long tables to be served wine, salami and cheese. Last, we went to another village to explore, take pictures and shop around.
Overall, I would highly recommend this tour! We had a blast and it was definitely a highlight of my trip.

Remarkable tour - booked based on previous reviews and VERY glad I did - Keito forgive me if misspelled was MARVELLOUS - she kept us on track, chivvied the group if we were slow and had a gorgeous sense of humour that simply fitted the whole bus - which was full of people from all corners of the world. Be prepared to see some gorgeous countryside and taste some marvellous wines that you will want to buy and take home or better still, drink with friends back in your hotel. The presenters at the vineyards were clearly knowledgeable and passionate about their work and our friends tell me they went away with a rosy glow and newfound knowledge that seemed a good fit for them. There's no daft question for any of the presenters and they were generous with their time, knowledge and humour. A DEFINITE recommendation from me.
