This unique half-day experience from Florence whisks you to the heart of Chianti and its world-renowned lush, rolling hills, sun-dappled olive groves and vineyards, and unparalleled wineries for an exclusive opportunity to try the very best Tuscan produce.
You’ll take a thirty-minute drive out of Florence and into the heart-meltingly beautiful countryside of rolling hills lined with cypress trees and dotted with hilltop villages.
Your tour then begins properly with a visit to a rustic wine estate in the heart of vineyards, where you will be greeted by the owners and offered “crostini toscani”, home-produced olive oil and a tasting of a delicate “Vino Chianti”.
Next, head down to the cellar, and learn all the secrets of wine processing that make the wine from this region so distinctive. Then, we move on to Greve in Chianti, which is, without doubt, one of the most famous and best known Italian Chianti wine villages.
Here you will have time to explore the characteristic alleyways and the central square, lined with its numerous Medieval buildings and its picturesque artisan shops.
The day continues, as we head back out into the olive trees, gentle hills and vineyards, where you will be offered another rich wine tasting together with some fresh, regional food. Finally, the owners of the wine estate will teach you some easy steps to become a perfect sommelier, before being driven back to Florence.
