Know More about this tour

Leave central Florence, and travel out of the city by air-conditioned 4x4 minibus. Soon, the views of Florence's 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 prestigious Italian aristocratic families. Here you taste three wines paired with cheese and two olive oils. 

You will also get a fascinating guided tour of the historic wine cellars and to the olive mill through underground tunnels that pass under the villa, and to the enchanting garden of the villa.

Hop back inside your 4x4 minibus and buckle up for an off-road experience, through stretches of Tuscany's 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. Here you will also buy a selection of typical Salumi (cured meats) from one of Italy's 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 lesser-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.

    The tour was wonderful. The guy was knowledgeable about the wineries, food and we even learned about olive oil making. The variety was exceptional there was a good mix between eating and drinking ( it left me feeling very relaxed but not two tipsy). Having lunch in a Vineyard was a wonderful experience for my sisters and myself. I highly recommend this to work if you're in the area

    Lavina’s knowledge about wine and the process of making it was really the highlight. The scenery and places we stoped were top notch as well as the vehicle and Roberto’s driving.
