Full description
Start your small group day trip driving to the south of Florence, through the Tuscan countryside. Reach the first winery to learn about all the winemaking process. Visit the farm, and satisfy all of your curiosity. Now your curiosity is satisfied, try a wine! Next, move on to another selected hilltop wine estate, where a wine expert is waiting for you to share the facts and anecdotes behind this product. Start an informative guided tour of the farm and learn all of the secrets to make a genuine wine. Sit down for lunch accompanied by the winery's own excellent wines and Vin Santo (dessert wine). Nothing is rushed, so take the time to relax and enjoy. After lunch, head to Greve in Chianti, the most representative village of the Chianti Classico countryside, birthplace of the famous Tuscan explorer Giovanni da Verrazzano, who discovered the New York Harbor. Take some free time to admire the attractive main square. To complete this experience, continue to the third winery, and taste their products, before you head back to Florence.

Francesco was an amazing guide through the Chianti region. He was friendly, hilarious, welcoming, and made the day even better w a few extra surprise stops for us. The trip w Francesco was one of the highlights of our two weeks in Italy. All three of the vineyards we visited were incredible as well. We order olive oil and wine to be shipped home and enjoyed the individual attention (as well as delicious wine and food) at each. This is a trip well worth booking if you are in doubt. Enjoy!!!

This experience was a highlight of our trip. We went with two other individuals who we became fast friends with. The ride was a very nice, air conditioned 10 passenger van. We visited three different wineries and got food at each. Each of the wineries were delicious and unique, so it didn't feel repetitive. The guide was patient and helpful. Can't recommend enough!

Our guide/driver Alex was perfect! He was knowledgeable, professional and friendly. At our request he even dropped us off at the Piazzale Michelangelo at the end of the day. The 3 wineries were all very different and beautiful. We sampled loads of great wines/Olive oil and the lunch was delicious. Great tour!
