Full description
Starting in the center of Florence, your English-speaking driver will take you on a scenic drive straight into the heart of Chianti. You will drive along the ancient Roman road “Cassia Vetus”, surrounded by rolling hills with breathtaking views over vineyards and olive groves. Your first stop will be the Medieval village of Greve, which is the birthplace of Giovanni da Verrazzano, the Florentine traveler who discovered the Hudson Bay in the 15th century. Next you will visit the superb hilltop hamlet named Montefioralle. Strolling through the narrow streets, you might be surprised to discover that this stone village has been perfectly preserved since the 12th century. You can admire breathtaking panoramas and discover anecdotes and secrets related to the “Black Rooster”, the emblem of the Chianti Classico. You will experience a genuine, family run, wine estate with medieval cellars where prestigious original oak barrels are still used for aging the wine. Learn the secrets behind the making of the regions’ extra-virgin olive oil, and find out the best way to recognize a genuine one. Your experience will end in the proper Chianti way, with a typical Tuscan meal that you will get to enjoy on the private estate. It will be prepared with organic ingredients that are grown on the property, and to top things off you’ll get to enjoy a pairing of 3 top Chianti Classico wines and taste an extra-virgin olive oil.

We were the first of 2020 to book this tour and were only 2 for a usual capacity of 7 people, but they still keep the reservation. Our guide (Gilberto) was really great, he explained the secrets of the region to every corner. Then, arrived at the vineyard, very warm welcome, simple but very good meal, and wine tasting as well as the explanation of the creation process: perfect! I highly recommend this tour, I would even say that it is one of my best memories of our trip to Tuscany.

The excursion was wonderful. Even though it was just me and my wife, the tour wasn't cancelled. Gilberto is a great guide, he explained many things about Tuscany, gave us great tips on what to do in our next destinations and took us to a very beautiful farm, where the owner was super attentive, explained to us about the production of Chianti wine and offered us a delicious lunch. I super recomend it!
