Full description
After meeting your guide and boarding the coach, drive to the Chianti region. On the way to the first winery, your guide will share interesting facts and curiosities about landmarks along the route. Arrive at the first “cantina” of the day, where you will be welcomed by the winemakers. After listening to a brief introduction about the winery’s history and the types of wine made there, join a guided tour of the facilities and nearby vineyards. Learn all about the winemaking process, the materials used to make the barrels, and what it takes to be classified as a “Chianti Classico”. Then, begin your first wine tasting of about 5 wines. You will hear an explanation of each of the wines that you sample, 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 salumi. Board the bus and continue to the second winery. On the way, make a stop at a scenic lookout to observe a stunning panorama of the Chianti Hills. At the second winery, learn about their production methods, what is unique about their vines, and how weather can affect the grapes. Explore the facilities during a short guided tour, and walk through the vineyards. Then, sample another round of up to 5 wines, as the local charismatic wine producer tells you about the peculiarities of each. After some free time, head back to Florence.

Very nice views, well arranged. However, the staff at the first winery was very stressed, it felt like and wanted to get us away as soon as possible. The second vineyard was absolutely magnificent as we got to see more of the vineyard itself and time for photography. Very good wines in both places.

The tour was a mix of Spanish and English speaking groups. Our tour group was mostly young adults and there were times when they loud in their conversation and forgot to consider some of their fellow tourists who would like to listen to the guide. We went to two wineries. The first winery we went to was so-so. The host provided information about their wine and would need to be more engaging. Second, it was a beautiful winery which caters to private clientele. The host was engaging and fun. Our driver was great! Our tour guide is good as well. Perhaps injecting some stories/history while driving to the wineries would be great! A small group/private tour will probably be best if you have extra money to spend.

This was my first wine tour ever and not my last. Anastasia was a wonderful guide and Raul was a great driver. Both of the wineries we were taken to were fantastic. The first one we went to had very nice owners who took time to explain their wine and what it paired well with. The second place had a very charismatic owner who made our time at the winery so fun. Aside from the wine tours, the views of the Chianti region made this tour even better.
