Description

With your expert guide, enjoy a comprehensive introduction to the region and its wines while touring two of the region's best wine estates. As you sample the winery’s signature wines, you’ll receive tips about the art of wine tasting and pairing wine with food. Your first stop of the day is at a beautiful winery belonging to one of the most prestigious Italian aristocratic families. Here you'll taste three wines paired with cheese and two olive oils but first, there’s a fascinating guided tour of the historic wine cellars and to the olive mill through underground tunnels that pass under the villa. Now buckle-up and get ready for some off-roading through ancient woodland and rolling hills, outlined with cypress trees and dotted with rustic farms and churches, to make your way to a typical Tuscan restaurant with stunning views. Here is where you will really get your taste buds tingling with delicious food and wine. You will not want to leave! To visit the final wine estate you'll go deeper into the Chianti hills and enjoy more incredible countryside on your way to a Chianti Classico vineyard. As a contrast to the established winery of the morning, this one is smaller and less known though does have award winning wines which you will taste as you find out how ancient tradition and innovation have been combined to create them. The unique beauty of this area will add to the unforgettable memories you will have created so far. There will also be a stop in Greve, a picturesque town in Chianti where you can enjoy a little free time to wind down and get a coffee, shop or just soak in the unique Italian culture of this idyllic place. The perfect way to end the perfect day!
