Full description
On this tour, you will visit the beautiful region of Chianti and immerse yourself in the picturesque Tuscan scenery. Explore the home of one of the most famous wines in the world, with its beautiful ruby-red color and characteristic violet-scented bouquet: Chianti. This wine results from a blend of Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. You will discover the breathtaking landscapes that have cradled the Chianti vineyards for centuries, presenting you with a harmony of colors that can only be found in this region. Along the way, visit ancient churches, medieval castles and small villages, where the rhythms of traditional life remain unaltered. The tour continues with a visit to a charming wine estate where you will take part in a guided tour of the wine cellars, learn about wine production, and savor a tasting of the various wines produced, paired with samples of sliced cold meats, bruschetta and salami. You will also see the characteristic fortress of Monteriggioni, and shops that specialize in typical Tuscan products. Subsequently, the tour includes a second tasting of olive oil and wine in another local winery.

    nice afternoon

    Really enjoyed this afternoon tour. We were picked up at our B&B promptly. We visited the old town of Monteriggioni where we had a half an hour to explore. Two wineries were visited next. A tour of the cellar was included at each, along with tasting of wines, olive oils and balsamic vinegar. There were 6 people on our tour, but we met up with other tour groups for the tasting at the wineries. Our driver spoke great English ! Highly recommend.

    Ottimo tour alla scoperta dei vini del Chianti

    Siamo state molto contente di questo tour! L'autista, gentilissimo e preparato, ci ha portati a Monteriggioni, poi abbiamo proseguito per la prima cantina, a Lornano, dove ci sono state mostrate le cantine di fermentazione e di invecchiamento del vino prima di iniziare la degustazione dei vini da loro prodotti. Seconda tappa a Poggio Amorelli, altra piccola azienda vinicola con splendida vista sui colli. Anche qui siamo stati accolti da un vinicoltore preparatissimo, abbiamo degustato vino, olio, aceto balsamico, salumi e formaggi locali. Siamo state davvero molto contente di questo tour alternativo nella campagna senese!
