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.

If you like wine, want to have a good time, and are in the region hit up this tour. The guide was great, the wineries were pleasant, and the staff were really amazing. We knew going in it was a bit of a trek on the bus, but it really is a bit of a trek. The wineries were very different from each other which added a nice contrast to the day. It would have been nice if there was a third winery as it wasn't until the second one that groups of people were starting to form and have fun. Or alternatively, a dinner option back in town would have sealed the deal.

Loved it! Make sure you bring your walking shoes, because the meeting point to the Bus is a bit of a walk. But once we got to the bus it was smooth sailing. We visited 2 vineyards. Both were beautiful and the wines were exceptional! The ride up to Tuscany the vineyards was beautiful and our guide was informative and quite funny! He made the trip that much more enjoyable. I would recommend this for small groups, couples and people traveling solo.

We loved this winery tour! It was the perfect length of time and we were able to get a good sense for the wine making process in Italy. The two wineries we went to offered just the right amount of knowledge along with food and wine. The wines we tasted were amazing!! Also, our tour guide (I unfortunately cannot remember her name) provided us with a lot of knowledge and fun facts while traveling to the Tuscan countryside for the wineries tour.
