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.

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.

Beautiful countryside, just like a picture postcard even in February. Having a few glasses of wine along the way only enhanced the experience. We stopped at 2 wineries where we had tastings of cheese, vinegar and jam as well as wine. We also stopped in two small villages which were mostly deserted at this time of year.

Having never been on a winery tour before, I really enjoyed this. The tour guide was very informative and helpful.

Beautiful tour of two wineries in the Chianti region outside of the city of Florence. Each winery was unique, and offered plenty of selections of wine, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, cheeses, and meats. The tour also stopped in two villages near the wineries which had such cute stores! My favorite part of my trip to Florence was most definitely this tour!!

Highly highly recommend this tour! It was a half day excursion visiting 2 wineries where we were given generous tastings of 5-7 different kinds of wine varietals with several cheese, olive oils and bread. Both wineries gave us a tour of their facilities with careful and in depth explanations of their wines. We also stopped at 2 different towns in the Chianti region which was a nice way to visit the local area and explore. Our guide was knowledgable and offered a fantastic history lesson on the bus ride up to the Chianti region. Definitely worth while and gained a more insightful view of the wine making process and its history.

Muy buen tour, muy bien organizado, muy interesante las explicaciones, aunque me imagino que por tiempo no se puede abarcar mucho, me hubiera gustado ver los viñedos y que explicaran más el proceso, al final se convierte en una exposición de los vinos que producen y si quieren al final comprarlos.
