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.

This was one of the highlights of our whole trip to Florence. The tour was on time and was not as onerous as we thought it would be! The tour operator was really friendly and funny. She was able to deliver information clearly but also time for us to absorb the amazing views. The first part of the tour took approx an hour to reach. Where we were able to sample Chianti wine, olive oil and balsamic vinegar. We then continued to the higher altitude and thins took approx 30 mins. The speaker here was extremely passionate about the wine and process involved in making good quality wine. I would highly recommend this tour!

I loved this tour. The group was small enough that we were able to talk with the leaders. They say the best part of drinking wine is the memories that you have with the taste, and we have fantastic memories with Chianti wine out. I would absolutely recommend.

Brilliant half day tour. Weather was terrible but that could not be helped. Guide was excellant, very informative.
VIneyards for the tastings were amazing.
The only negative was that it would have been nice to have a bit more time in Greve.

This tour is a must if you like to sample wine and other products from the region. The staff at both wineries visited were very friendly and knowledgeable. The bus ride during the tour was comfortable and the scenery was picturesque. Our tour stopped at the small town of Greve in Chianti. Although small, the town has a lot of personality with shops for just about anybody.

We had a great day!! Our tour guide Helena was very informative, and the Wine Experts at both Wineries taught us a few very interesting things about wine tasting and quality. We stopped midway in the little town of Greve that was just lovely. I wish we had more time there! The scenery along the way is breath taking, we couldn't stop taking pictures. The experience and the price were simply excellent!
