ABOUT OUR TUSCANY WINE TOUR
We have over 10 years of experience in the Chianti region. During Tuscany Wine Tour our wine tasting experts will guide you every step of the way to make sure you are learning and having fun (after all, you are on vacation!) during your visit. The guides are trained wine experts with years of experience, both in the field, and at the castle. In addition, all of our staff speaks english so you can sit back and relax as they take you through an expertly-guided wine tasting.
Chianti Wine Region
Italy is not short on beautiful regions, but the Chianti region is particularly breathtaking. For that reason, and for the famed "Chianti" red wine production in the area, we have chosen to run our tours in the Chianti region of Tuscany. You will get the opportunity to indulge in the world-renowned Chianti wine while taking in breathtaking landscapes. In addition, its proximity to the center of Florence (only about 20 minutes by car) makes it incredibly convenient when you are only in Florence for a short time.
Family Owned Winery
The winery from which we run the tour was built in the 12th century and is owned by a local Florentine family. Today, we are fortunate enough that the current owners open up their doors and allow us to tour their home. Francesco and his family make everyone feel at home once they welcome you into their sprawling property, which includes over 350 hectares of vineyards and olive trees, this fairytale winery will not disappoint!
No wine tasting is complete without food! After the tasting, you will be treated to a generous traditional Tuscan lunch at the castle. Lunch includes a selection of Tuscan ham, salami and cheese, salad, and pasta, dessert and coffee. You will also be invited to try the castle's homemade olive oil and honey or jam. And of course, no Italian lunch is complete without wine! Although the tasting portion of the day will have been complete, you are welcome to enjoy more wine with lunch.
