Chianti: Wine Tasting and Food Experience in the Tuscan Countryside
Starting from €125
If you wish to have a faithful understanding of the Chianti region, this is the tour you are looking for!
The tour starts on board a deluxe, air-conditioned minivan with an English-speaking driver and complimentary water.
The Chianti region is renowned worldwide for its valuable ruby-red blends and unique hillside. Sangiovese is the most planted vine in Italy and on this journey, you will learn how to recognize and appreciate it properly.
Our first stop will be in the heart of the Chianti area, which is called "Chianti Classico", where you will visit a local winery that produces a selection of Chianti and delicious olive oil. You will be welcomed by a member of the family that will carefully guide you through the vineyard, cellar and to the tasting where you can try different vintages of Chianti classico, Vinsanto, Grappa, and some fresh local deliciousness to eat with.
We’ll continue going in the direction of "Colli fiorentini," touring across the spectacular Chianti landscape. You are more than welcome to ask our driver to stop for a few pictures at your favourite spot!
Then, you will reach an ancient and suggestive castle located in Montespertoli area. "Sonnino Castle" is a historical farm and winery that produces quality wines and olive oil. The family is still living in the castle where they have collected so many pieces of evidence of Italian history. Many books are inspired by this great location! "Sonnino Castle" has been chosen by Gucci for the project Gucci Places, designed to encourage people to discover interesting and unexpected locations.
Discover their amazing wines (some of which have won prizes at Vinitaly), "Sonnino" extra virgin olive oil, cheese, jam, ham, pasta and Vin Santo with cantuccini.
After the meal and a bit of free time for yourself we will bring you back to Florence relaxed and full of delicious memories!
