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 tasting session of 4 different 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 3 wines, as the local charismatic wine producer tells you about the peculiarities of each. After some free time, head back to Florence.

We went to two wineries! The first was very good based on the views of the Chianti region and the family history of the location! The wine tasting and food samples was not as generous as the second winery that we went to , I asked the server to pour more wine and he responded I am limited to the amount I can pour per glass! The second winery was set up more elegantly with amazing views and the host was more entertaining and enjoyable to listen . He educated the group the art of wine tasting and how to hold a wine glass properly, allo how to extract the aroma’s out of the wine. The server was very generous in pouring the wine in to our glasses versus the first winery filling them up ! Personally felt the first winery was more sales pitch and needed to sale wine… versus the second winery was there for you to taste an enjoy the vintage they had to offer with no obligations to buy…. just my interpretation.

Absolutely loved this experience! We were a bit nervous when we saw how many people are in the group (30-40) but it was a surprisingly personalized experience. The wine and food was excellent, and the trip out to the countryside was beautiful. Definitely recommend for the value! Yenna, our host, was extremely nice and helpful!

This was good fun and good value for money. The countryside and vineyards were beautiful, the wine was great and there were generous amounts of it, including cheese, bread, oils and salami. It was informative without being dry. Anna was our host and Antonio our driver and both were great :) definitely would recommend, we got the direct train from Rome to Florence and it was easy.
