Full description

With your expert guide, enjoy a comprehensive introduction to the region and its wines while touring two of the region's best wine estates. Sample the winery’s signature wines and receive tips about the art of wine tasting and pairing wine with food.

First, stop at a beautiful winery belonging to one of the most prestigious Italian aristocratic families. Here, taste three wines paired with cheese and two olive oils. 

Enjoy a fascinating guided tour of the historic wine cellars and to the olive mill through underground tunnels that pass under the villa. 

Buckle up and get ready for some off-roading through ancient woodland and rolling hills, outlined with cypress trees and dotted with rustic farms and churches, to make your way to a typical Tuscan restaurant with stunning views. 

To visit the final wine estate, go deeper into the Chianti hills and enjoy more incredible countryside on your way to a Chianti Classico vineyard. 

As a contrast to the established winery of the morning, enjoy these smaller, award-winning wines that will taste of a combination of ancient tradition and innovation. 

The unique beauty of this area will add to the unforgettable memories you will have created so far. Next, stop in Greve, a picturesque town in Chianti, where you can enjoy a little free time to wind down. Get a coffee, shop or just soak in the unique Italian culture of this idyllic place.

    Gloria was fun, funny, and so very knowledgeable about not only the food and wine, but the region's history. We loved our experience and would recommend it for anyone who wants to be immersed in history, culture, and good food and wine. We had thought about renting a car and venturing out on our own, but are so glad that we were able to enjoy the hard to find kind of locations that the tour provided.

    Alex was great He was fun and knowledgeable. The ride was comfortable. The wineries were absolutely gorgeous. I highly recommend this tour. My only disappointment was that the tour description I had was that there was going to be a stop in Greve. Alex said that was taken out of tour some time ago. So it was not updated. However, none of the others seemed to have this expectation. So whoever they purchased from did not set this expectation.
