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 tasting session of 4 different 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 3 wines, as the local charismatic wine producer tells you about the peculiarities of each. After some free time, head back to Florence.

We loved this tour! Sarah was a great guide on the bus and even offered to take our photo for us at one of the wineries we went to. The meeting point was easy to find. The best part was the two wineries we visited. Both had fantastic hosts and great wines and snacks. We were able to taste 5 wines at the first location, and 4 at the next. We felt there was ample time at both to explore the area a bit and purchase wines if we wanted to. We preferred the second winery, Il Molina De Grace, even though both were great. The host at Il Molina De Grace gave us a lot of information, was welcoming, and funny too. We would highly recommend going on this wine tour!

We had a wonderful winery tour on the 3rd August. The wineries we visited were great! Yenna was so welcoming, friendly and was happy to answer questions I had, I would like to say a huge thank you to Yenna for making our day so enjoyable. I would definitely recommend this tour to friends and family.

The tour itself was good and the guide very nice. The driver coped well with the narrow roads. Two concerns (i) the coach arriving later than the scheduled departure time - people were standing around in the sweltering heat with very limited shelter /seating at the meeting point - no updates were given re the coach save for 'it's coming'. (ii) When the coach arrived the previous passengers disembarked and the new passengers were asked to immediately board so there did not seem to be any time to clean/disinfect the coach.
