After meeting your guide and boarding the coach, drive to the Chianti region.

You will hear an explanation of each of the wines that you taste, as well as some tips on how to savor the wine and understand its qualities. The wines will be accompanied by local snacks produced in the region, such as cheese, bread, olive oil, and salami. Jump back on the bus and continue your adventure to the second winery. At the second winery, learn everything about their production methods, what is unique about their wines, and how weather can affect the grapes.

Then, sample another round of up to 3 wines, as the local charismatic wine producer tells you about the peculiarities of each. After some free time, to enjoy the beauty of your surroundings and to take some great pictures, head back to Florence in your comfortable fully-fitted GT bus.
