Your wine expert guide will answer your questions and talk you through many more facts on the trip which takes max 40 minutes.
As you get off the highway and enter the Chianti Classico region, you will enjoy the first breathtaking views over this magnificent landscape.
Each winery has its own unique setting in an age-old farmhouse with far-reaching views. After tasting at each farm, you’ll have a little time for purchases and then you will move on to the next winery.
The first winery is Fattoria Montecchio, where you will start with a quick overview of the farm and a good look at the vineyards. Then it’ll be time for the first tasting of 3 different wines and fresh olive oil.
At the next winery, Casa Sola, you’ll see the ancient cellars and learn about the ageing of the wines. Afterwards, enjoy another wonderful selection of great reds from Chianti Classico.
At the third winery, Casa Emma, it’ll be time to learn about wine & food pairings. So after briefly enjoying the views, you can proceed to the winery restaurant for a typical Tuscan meal consisting of an antipasto (pecorino, prosciutto, salami & bruschetta), some lovely homemade pasta and finally, finish off with Cantuccini biscotti - all accompanied by a wine tasting of the winery's fine selection of wines.
The wines tasted during the day are all representative of the area of Chianti Classico, so red wines made from Sangiovese and other red varieties. You'll also have the opportunity of tasting a Super Tuscan at each winery.
As the third winery visit comes to and end, you can get back into the comfort of the coach and head back to the center of Florence.
