Full description

Taste around 10 local wines, meet wine producers and wander 2 stunning vineyards on this half-day tour through the rolling Chianti Hills.

Your guide will share curious facts and stories on the way to the first local winery, or cantina, of the day where the winemakers will welcome you with a tour of the facilities and nearby vineyards.

Hear about the history of the estate, the winemaking process, and what it takes to be classified as a "Chianti Classico" from the producers themselves before you sit down to taste about 5 local wines.

As you savor each glass the winemaker will share tasting notes and tips to help you better understand the qualities to look for. Perhaps best of all, the wines will be served with cheese, bread, cured meats and olive oil all produced in the local region.

After a scenic stop at a postcard-perfect panoramic lookout it's time for the second winery. Here the winemaker will explain what makes their vines unique and how the weather can affect the grapes.

A guided tour will lead you through the winemaking facilities and the vineyards themselves. Then it's time to sample another 5 wines while the producer describes the differences between each Chianti drop.

Before heading back to Florence, enjoy some free time wandering the vineyard, snapping extra photos and savoring the sights of the gorgeous Tuscan countryside.

The tour was very enjoyable. We were able to taste 4 different types of wine in 2 different wineries (8 in total) as well as some hams, olive oil, truffle oil and balsamic vinegar. The drive takes a bit of time (about around 90 minutes in total) but the scenery makes it look shorter. The hosts were very welcoming and helpful with some nice explanations and the wines were good ! We had about 15-20 minutes of free time after the tasting in each location to enjoy the landscapes and the place.

Perfect half day tour. It didn’t feel rushed. The tour guide, I think her name was Yenna, was really nice and easy to talk to. It was a great way to meet other people. You get a generous amount of wine to taste at the two wineries. You get a small tasting plate at both wineries too. I am vego and the second winery had an amazing vego option for the tasting plate. The bus was comfortable as well. I recommend, it’s a good way to see outside of Florence city.

Nice activity! That's what I expected. The guide was very friendly. He spoke several languages including French. On the other hand, we ran out of time during our visit to the second vineyard. We had to quickly see our wine to see the next one. It would be better to allow a little more time or to shorten the time at the first vineyard.
