What You Can Expect

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 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.

Must do experience.. they take you to 2 wineries and each serving upto 5 different wines. The tour host was engaging from the starting point giving us history of Florence. The trip started on time at 1.15 pm and we got dropped back at 8.00 pm.

We had a wonderful tour and a great tour guide - and a great bus driver. Each of the wineries we stopped at had very personable representatives, and we couldn't decide which one we liked better. We were never rushed and the timing was perfect. We also stopped for a half hour in the town of Greve, which was a perfect place for a hot chocolate break we went in January 2018. We would highly recommend this tour.
