What You Can Expect

Taste of Chianti: Tuscan Cheese, Wine and Lunch from Florence

Enjoy the wine that the Chianti has to offer

Meet your guide in central Florence and hop aboard an air-conditioned, 4x4 minibus. Watch the city streets transform into the rolling hillside of Chianti, lined with vineyards and olive groves.

Your first stop of the day is at a winery belonging to one of the most prominent Italian families. Taste three wines paired with cheese and two olive oils, and enjoy a guided tour of the historic wine cellars. Travel to the olivemill through the villa's underground tunnels, as well as to the garden.

Afterward, head to a Tuscan restaurant and settle down for a 3-course meal, including regional specialties such as fresh pasta, grilled meats and two glasses of fine Chianti wine. (See the Itinerary for a sample menu.)

Continue to the charming town of Greve-in-Chianti, where the Chianti Classico wine festival is held each year. Pick up a selection of typical salumi (cured meats) from one of Italy’s most famous butchers to enjoy later at the second winery.

Enjoy the last of your afternoon at a small, award-winning winery that specializes in Chianti Classico wine. Hear about the winemaking process while sipping and swirling delicious varietals. Your tour will conclude with a ride back to Florence.

Absolutely fantastic time! It's a great way to see Tuscany in a day and feel like you got the experience! Totally worth it and would do it again!

Our tour guide was Gloria and she was amazing! She was born and raised in Chianti, and provided a lot of local knowledge that can't be taught of out a textbook! We learned tons about the land, about the history, about the grapes - I would highly recommend this tour. I live by Napa/Sonoma in California and have taken many wine tours, and this was probably one of the most enjoyable to date. Plus you can't beat the views! We went in early September and were fortunate enough to visit a winery that was actively harvesting. Wish we could go back!

This tour was amazing! It by far my favorite thing we did on our 10 day trip to Italy. Our tour guide, Margaret, was fantastic! She was so sweet and genuinely wanted us all to have a good time. At the end of the tour she took time to visit with us 1 by 1 to help us with anything we needed.

Best tour of the entire Italy trip. Our tour guide Allessandro was Amazing. He brought us to three wineries and knew everything about them, we stopped for a couple pictures here and there and the little market town we stopped in was what I was looking for the entire Italy trip. I can not stress enough that people should take this tour, I know I am telling every person that I know going to Italy to book this!

What a great day, we had only a small group with our guide Alessandro who was amazing. We were taken to different winery in the hills of Tuscany. We had food tasting, wine, cheese and honey, so good. After seeing the winery we then were taken to a restaurant on top of a hill to experience a traditional Tuscan meal with all the trimming with a different wine for each course all picked by our Alessandro. We all had a day to remember driving through vineyards of Tuscany and enjoying a wonderful meal together. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone.

Me and my wife were on our honeymoon in Italy last week and we went on this day trip into the Florence countryside. It was definitely one of the best days of our entire trip. Our guide was Lavinia and she was awesome. She's born and raised in the Florence countryside and knows everything there is to know about wine production, olive oil making, and all things Italy. Her English was spot-on perfect and she also had the best personality and was super fun to talk to about anything, including some of our favorite shows, like The Walking Dead. Both of the vineyards we went to were small, unique, and special in their own way. We got to taste several wines and had delicious cheese and meat snacks at each. Lunch was at this incredible restaurant in the middle of nowhere with an unbelievably beautiful view and amazing food. George Clooney ate there recently apparently. It was great. The trip lasted the whole day and it was a day well spent. We absolutely loved it and especially loved our host Lavi. If we ever go back to Italy, we'd definitely do this again.

INCREDIBLE! This tour was everything that we could have wished for and more. Exceeded all expectations! Stefano, our Italian sommelier tour guide was awesome from start to finish, full of incredible information and history regarding Tuscany and Chianti wines in general He also gives the best dinner recommendations for restaurants in Florence. The lunch on the tour was my personal highlight, overlooking the gorgeous Tuscan picturesque countryside with the most delicious food all paired back with various Chianti grown wines. This is a must if you're visiting Tuscany or Florence, even if for a day regardless of if you love wine...you will by the end of this tour. We can't wait to go back to Tuscany!
