  • Taste Chianti wines, including Classico, Riserva, Super Tuscan, and Vin Santo

Description

This full-day tour from Florence takes you on a journey through Chianti, a region that has been producing highly popular wines for centuries. Enjoy the landscape of rolling hills, vineyards, cypress trees, olive groves, and ancient villages. Travel along small country roads until you reach Montefioralle, a medieval village perched on a hill. Along the way your driver will tell you a bit about the region’s history, culture, and wines. Stop for a brief walk before reaching Greve, a small town known as the capital of Chianti wine production. When you reach the central square you can visit the small shops or the wine museum, if you like. You’ll pass through the small town of Panzano, making your next stop at a winery where you’ll have a chance to explore the cellars, taste the wines, and discuss them with the winemaker. Taste wines that are typical of Chianti, such as Classico, Riserva, Super Tuscan, and Vin Santo. At lunchtime your driver will be happy to suggest a nice trattoria that also produces some excellent wines, or perhaps you’d prefer to have a private lunch in the cellar of a winery. The tour continues to Castellina, a lovely little town where you’ll stop for a stroll along the narrow streets and a visit to some wine shops. A bit later in the day you'll visit another highly rated winery. Together with your previous experiences you'll begin to have an appreciation of the range of wines that Chianti has to offer.
