Full description

Journey through the wine-producing region of Tuscany on a guided day trip from Florence. Visit three organic wineries and enjoy lunch with a tasting of local wines, balsamic vinegar, and olive oil. Take a walk in the medieval town of Greve in Chianti.

 

Start your day trip driving through the Tuscan countryside. Reach the first winery to learn about the winemaking process. Visit the farm, the cellar and learn all of the secrets to making wine.

 

Next, move on to another selected hilltop wine estate, where a wine expert is waiting for you to share facts and anecdotes about the process. Sit down for a light lunch accompanied by the winery's own wines and products. 

 

After lunch, head to Greve in Chianti, for a quick stop in the most representative village of the Chianti Classico countryside. Take some free time to admire the main square before continuing to the final stop, a historical family-owned villa and winery.

 

Admire the views of Florence and one of the most beautiful Italian gardens in the area. Taste the winery’s local products, made with the deepest respect for the cultivation traditions of the region. Compare the products and the philosophies of these three different local winemakers.

Our guide, Leo, made this trip extra special. His knowledge about history added so much depth to the whole tour. He also sang and played the guitar for us :) very lovely tour. This one tour has made me fall in love with Italy, it’s culture, it’s history, it’s food and ofcourse it’s wine :)

Leonardo was amazing! We went to 3 wineries and learned a lot of history along the drive: Fattoria San Michele a Tori (Alicia was a great host), then ate lunch and paired with wines at Casa Emma (Julia was also a great host), had a brief stop at Greve in Chianti for gelato, and finally Poggio Torselli (Matteo was a great host). The views and experience was fantastic! I highly recommend booking this adventure.

We loved this tour! The group size was probably around 20 people and it was really fun talking to other couples and friends on their trip as most were in the same age range (20s-30s). Our tour guide Leo made the tour so interesting and made us laugh a lot while also sharing so much of his knowledge of wines and Tuscany. My boyfriend and I agreed this was our favorite part of our Italy trip and we would recommend this tour (and Leo!) to any wine lover. 10/10
