Explore the Chianti region during a half day trip from Florence and visit two rustic wine estates, where you will do a “Vino Chianti” tasting and you’ll try other typical products such as home produced olive oil.
Chianti Half-Day Wine Tour
We'll collect you in an air-conditioned coach and head to Chianti, the renowned wine region in Tuscany. This part of Italy is postcard-perfect with green valleys, old vineyards, pretty trees dispersed on slopes and hillsides. According to a saying, all paths in Tuscany lead either to a wine cellar, a castle or a farm.
The first stop will be a rural wine cellar, where you’ll be offered a delicious afternoon snack with typical Tuscan products and extra virgin olive oil accompanied by a Chianti wine. You will then be led by the owner inside the Cellar and learn how the wine is produced.
Hop back on the coach and enjoy the striking landscape until you get to Greve in Chianti, one of the main destinations in this region. You’ll have time to explore the town at your own pace and visit the local stores and buy some of its exquisite home-made products.
The next stop is another wine cellar. You’ll be guided through the estate by an expert guide, who will explain how long the wine sits in the numerous wooden casks and vats. The tour will end with a home-produced Chianti wine tasting.
The afternoon excursion will come to an end after the wine tasting and you’ll head back to Florence, arriving in the city centre at around 7:45 pm. Upon arrival, you will be dropped off at Piazzale Montelungo, very close to the railway station Santa Maria Novella.
If for logistical reasons it is not possible to visit Greve in Chianti, this stop will be changed for another of the same duration in a different village.
