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.

Had a really great day on the wine tour, visited a couple of lovely vineyards and a picturesque small town. I went along as a single traveler and really enjoyed the day, you soon get talking with others after a couple of wines. The tastings are pretty small but you can also buy an extra glass of wine at each vineyard if you wish. Great way to see the countryside.

We went on a tour with Eugenia. She was extremely knowledgeable and provided so much information. She was even able to answer some unrelated questions about the local vegetation. Very impressive.

We toured two wineries. The first one was small and quaint. (The wine was priced cheaper at this one!) The other was much larger. Both beautiful and provided really great tastings.


There were two stops in the middle of the tour in two small towns. The stops were very short. Be sure to have lunch prior to the tour!


Overall, well worth the money. Beautiful views that we wouldn’t have been able see otherwise. It was about an hour drive from Florence to the wineries. And our tour was amazing. She was so approachable and knowledgeable. She even walked us to catch a taxi after the tour was over. We had a great experience!

This is a good value half day tour as we had a good 7 hours. Both of the wineries were great. The second one was made even more enjoyable by our host, Jean Luigi who kept us well entertained. The bites of local produce were also well done. There wasn’t much at the two places we stopped and you certainly don’t get much time to explore but it was nice to stretch the legs. Kudos to the coach driver for getting around some of those turns! Met some nice friendly people and the host was informative without overdoing it. Would recommend if you want to dabble your toes into Chianti

My husband and I were very happy with the tour company. The driver and guide was fantastic. We never felt rushed and yet we got to see a lot more than we expected.

Pretty fun tour. The guide was funny, and we definitely got to explore Tuscany. We went to two wineries, both were super fun, and we saw two charming towns. Great taste of Tuscany.

Great day. Our first wine tour was at Poggio Amorelli, it was awesome. The second tour was at Risecolli. Villages of Castellina in Chianti and Greve in Chianti were visited. You only have a short time for visiting these villages.
Please be aware if you are thinking of shipping wines to Ontario... Firstly, to Canada, we had to purchase 6 bottles of wine. We knew there would be some duty to pay. For personal reasons, we were unable to carry bottles that would be exempt of duty or only approximately 40 customs duty when declared upon entering Canada. Upon receiving notifications of shipping and customs information, we were surprised in the extra to be paid. The LCBO charge is 102.2 of the receipt which you have to send to the brokerage company, plus 50 brokerage fee, plus HST.

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!
