We had a wonderful tour with our guide, Simone. He was very knowledgeable and pointed out many aspects of wine-making to us at the wineries. He kept us engaged and answered our questions, and was helpful and friendly. The visits to the wineries were very well organized and clear. The small-group format is excellent and I would highly recommend anyone interested in this tour or similar ones that visit wineries to consider the small-group format. The food served was excellent. We sampled several wines on our visit and were able to compare the different types of wines as well as understand how good quality wines should taste. The minivan we rode in was air conditioned and comfortable. The meeting point in Florence was close to Orsanmichele, very convenient. The tour was run very well. The restaurant was another treat - with a cellar and also a small gift shop.

This was a really enjoyable day out. Our guide Serena a sommelier was delightful, very knowledgeable on Chianti and obviously loved her work. With the resurgence in popularity of Rose' and Chianti in many countries it was interesting to learn a little more about the Chianti variety. The wines were outstanding and the three course lunch was plentiful and of a high quality. There is definitely no pressure to buy wines however we couldn't resist and are saving this bottle for a special occasion.
