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.

It was two of us but we met very fun people, learnt about Tuscany, and tasted some amazing wines. Elizaveta was great and super fun to be around. Would definitely recommend this tour if you have an extra day in Florence. Not to miss the sunset from the first winery… really breathtaking!

Me and my girlfriend loved the tour and the tour guide was fantastic. Each winery experience we enjoy. The tour guide was funny, made all feel comfortable and relaxed. The thing I didnt like was they needed to have a place for you to use the bathroom before you get on the tour my girlfriend had to search all the place looking for the bathroom which made the tour start a little late. Provide access to a restroom before the tour. Other than that I will definitely recommend this tour experience
