Full description

Journey through the wine-producing region of Tuscany on a day trip from Florence. Admire the countryside and hear all about it from your driver. Visit 3 wineries and enjoy lunch with a tasting of local wines, balsamic vinegar, and olive oil. Take a walk in the medieval town of Greve in Chianti.

Start your day trip driving to the south of Florence, through the Tuscan countryside. Reach the first winery to learn about the winemaking process. Visit the farm, and satisfy all of your curiosity.

Next, move on to another selected hilltop wine estate, where a wine expert is waiting for you to share the facts and anecdotes behind this product. Take a guided tour of the farm and learn all of the secrets to making wine.

Sit down for lunch accompanied by the winery's own wines and Vin Santo (dessert wine). Nothing is rushed, so take the time to relax and enjoy. After lunch, head to Greve in Chianti, the most representative village of the Chianti Classico countryside. Take some free time to admire the attractive main square. Continue to the third winery, and taste their products, before you head back to Florence.

Excellent tour visiting 3 wineries in Chianti region, lunch at one. Finding the start point was easy, very well looked after by Lorenzo all day, but not smothered. Max was an excellent driver in a comfortable air conditioned bus. The tours were informative, and well paced. Nice to be able to try their olive oils too. Lunch at Casa Emma was delicious, and they catered for vegetarians, allergies etc. Also had a short stop in Greve in Chianti, enough for a drink and stretch of the legs. An excellent day out. Do it!

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.
