My Exclusive Full Day Wine Tour in Tuscany with wine tastingfrom € 550.00
Join us for a unique wine tour, Tuscany's best.
A full day immersion into the very essence of Tuscany.
Visit vineyards and wineries in the stunningly beautiful and world famous Chianti Classico region of Tuscany, make exclusive visits to the private noble estate of a Tuscan Princess, taste and enjoy hearing about wine making in Tuscany.
The day begins with a visit to the vineyard in the heart of the Tuscan countryside, normally closed to the public, where you'll walk the vineyards and learn the secrets of planting, maintaining and harvesting the grapes in Tuscany.
Then it's off to the cellars to learn how grapes become wine.
The morning ends with a very special tasting direct from the barique aging barrel, followed by one last sampling of the final bottled product.
Our morning at the vineyard is followed by a visit to the beautiful medieval hamlet of Montefioralle.
After a break for lunch, we'll head to a 17th century villa, for a warm welcome to the home of an Italian Princess, where you'll enjoy a guided tasting of 3 of the wines that are produced on the estate.
On a scenic drive through the beautiful countryside your guide will point out some of the area's most important vineyards before a brief stop in the town of Greve in Chianti, where you can buy colourful traditional Tuscan ceramics souvenirs and sample the best salami and prosciutto in Tuscany before heading back to Florence.
Highlights: Visit to a wine producing estate with our expert who will guide you through the magic of winemaking - from planting the grapes to uncorking the bottle
