OVERVIEW

The Chianti wine Tour is an excellent way of exploring the beautiful countryside around Florence and tasting a few wines of superb quality.

But this activity, specifically designed for independent and group travellers aged from 18 to 39, is also a great way of meeting new friends and an alternative experience to visiting art galleries and monuments in Florence.

Join the fun group after breakfast (make sure you have one as there will be drinking soon!), hop aboard a comfortable 8-seater van and travel less than a hour outside Florence to reach a historic castle in the heart of the Chianti region.

It will feel like stepping into a painting of Leonardo Da Vinci with all the streets and hills surrounded by vineyards, olive trees and the typical cypresses trees.

After enjoying the beauty of the vineyard, you will be escorted down the old cellars where your expert guide will reveal the secrets of traditional wine making used here from Roman time through to the modern day.

Get familiar with a few formidable Chianti DOCG (mark for authenticity status), all complemented with freshly pressed olive oil and fresh oven-baked bread and other.

The Chianti Half-Day Wine Tasting Tour continues to a family-run winery a short ride away.

Small family-run producers have made the fortune of this great wine as they have gifted us with some amazing productions through the years.

All this contributes to make this experience even more authentic as you learn about the harvest process and how the grapes and olives are picked by hand.

You will soon realize how much hard work and passion is put into this great product and finally you will be able to taste the final result, as more wines and local products will be ready waiting for you.

Expect to try up to 8 different types of wine, balsamic vinegar and extra virgin olive oil. All amazing.

You should be back in Florence by 2pm.
