What people are saying about Greve in Chianti

An absolutely amazing experience! Went on this wine tour with my mom and sister for my Mom’s 60th birthday! Our tour guide Raffael absolutely made the trip outstanding. He was lots of fun and very knowledgeable! He gave us information about Florence, Tuscany, and the wineries and wine. We went to three different beautiful wineries. Lunch at the second winery was perfect and delicious! The wines were so outstanding that we shipped wine back home to the United States! The stop in Greve was nice and we enjoyed checking out the main town of Chianti. Everyone was so friendly. Our bus ride and driver were great! The scenery at the last winery was absolutely gorgeous. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day. Highly highly recommend!!

Great wineries. I feel like the second winery Casa Emma was the best of the bunch. Our tour guide and the driver created a fun and enjoyable atmosphere for the entire tour. The "special surprise" at the end was very enjoyable. We had 20 people on the tour and I found that to be a good amount of people. All in all everything was well paced and felt relaxed. Having said all that I feel like the amount of wine we received was a bit too little.

We had a great day tasting many different Chianti-wines whilst getting introduced to the wineries process on making the wine. We also got to taste different olive oils and had a tasty lunch at Casa Emma. Our guide, Rafael, was really knowledgeable and nice. can definitely recommend this tour

Nice tour. The three visited wineries were different from each other which was a plus. I’m not a wine drinker and went along for the ride and had a pleasant experience. Our guide Leo was great and made this tour!

Amazing tour! Leo is such a great guide and everyone we met were super nice and well informed Delicious food and Wine and beautiful scenery all the way!
