Know More about this tour

Leave central Florence, and travel out of the city by air-conditioned 4x4 minibus. Soon, the views of Florences travertine buildings and bustling roads are replaced with the lush green hills of Chianti, the famous wine region nestled in the heart of the Tuscan countryside.

Your first stop of the day is at a beautiful winery belonging to one of the most prestigiousItalian aristocratic families. Here you taste three wines paired with cheese and two oliveoils, but first theres a fascinating guided tour of the historic wine cellars and to the olivemill through underground tunnels that pass under the villa, and to the enchanting garden ofthe villa.
Hop back inside your 4x4 minibus and buckle up for an off-road experience, through stretches of Tuscanys ancient woodland and rolling hills, to your next stop: a traditional Tuscan restaurant. Take a seat and treat your taste buds to some of the finest food that Tuscany has to offer; your lunch is sure to be a highlight of the tour! See the Sample Menu below for examples of the dishes.

Feeling refreshed, continue with a visit to Greve-in-Chianti, a quintessential Tuscan town with pretty streets and quaint shops. Make the most of some free time to explore, enjoy a coffee (own expense) or simply soak up the unique Italian culture that abounds.Here you will also buy a selection of typical Salumi (cured meats) from one of Italys most famous butchers which you will enjoy later at the second winery.

The rest of your afternoon is spent deep in the Chianti hills at a vineyard that produces Chianti Classico wine. In contrast to the well-established winery visited in the morning, this second winery is smaller and less-known, but it has produced two award-winning varietals. Sample these varietals, and learn how innovation and ancient traditions have combined to make them. Finish with a sweet treat, and then relax on the journey back to Florence where your tour ends.
