    An 8-hour adventure through a historical guided tour around the delighful chiantishire, where you'll enjoy wine tests at some of tuscanies most prestigious wine -growers.

    Itinerary:
    Car pick up at your hotel in Florence, Siena and the whole area of Tuscany. Transfer to Montefioravalle and Greve in Chianti renowned just like some of the best locations this rich region has to offer. Along little used trails and backroads we'll arrive at hilltop towns with lovely views in proximity of wine estates and wooded hills. This is a place with castles to explore, some of them hosting highly regarded wineries, others abandoned among the forests, as well as country churches shyly hidden among lush woods. We'll then discover the characteristic "Piazza del Mercato" and enjoy an exclusive experience in a 450 years’s wine-production cellar, supervising the area where local wines are constantly produced. You'll see every step firsthand, from the vines in the fields to the bottling machine. It goes without saying that you'll end the day with an extended tasting of the wines you've just learned about, accompanied by local foods. After lunch we'll drive to Castello di Volpaia and Radda in Chianti, the heart of Chianti wine production, where during the course of our visit you will understand the simple, yet precise lifestyle of this region and how the inhabitants nurse their agriculture with religious fervour. On the other side of the hill lies San Gimignano, a town of extra-ordinary beauty, the village that many consider the gem of Tuscany for its charming streets and medieval towers. Sightseeing on the way through the Via Chiantigiana and back to your hotel.

    A 4-hour guided tour around the charming “Chianti-shire” wandering the vineyards farms and country homes of the Tuscan Locals. Let us help you discover the many facets of the extraordinary territory of Tuscany

    Itinerary:

    Car pick up at your hotel in Florence, Siena and the whole area of Tuscany. Transfer to the wine making zone to undertake our first amazing experience in Greve in Chianti located in the heart of Tuscany's Chianti Classico. Wine is as much a part of the Italian national identity as the pope, the mafia and soccer. Let your personal tour-manager take you to two working wineries, and give you an in-depth look at the making of some of Italy's most important wines. This tour starts in great style by visiting the typical and characteristic Piazza del Mercato, famous not only for its history, but also for its old passion for superior winemaking traditionally grown, nurtured and aged on one of the world's greatest estates to create classic wines of rare quality and exquisite taste. This is a place definitely to stop, since offers to our visitors some unforgettable views of valleys, colours and harmony in combination with local wine tests. Local residents jokingly call this part of Tuscany “Chianti-shire” and for a good reason. In the past century, wine lovers came to visit this region and decided definitely to stay. It’s not difficult to understand why! this is a region with great climate, the finest wine, olive oils, plus notably impressive, glorious panoramas. Tours are tailored to your needs, depending on whether you prefer to spend time tasting some of the finest wines on the planet or prefer visiting breathtaking sceneries. Moving through vineyards, renown wineries, castles and villages, thanks to the expertise of our guides, you will explore this world and know it’s most intimate secrets. On the way back to Florence through the Via Chiantigiana, we’ll enjoy a spectacular vineyards landscape of inimitable appeal.
