Full description

With your expert guide, enjoy a comprehensive introduction to the region and its wines while touring two of the region's best wine estates. Sample the winery’s signature wines and receive tips about the art of wine tasting and pairing wine with food.

First, stop at a beautiful winery belonging to one of the most prestigious Italian aristocratic families. Here, taste three wines paired with cheese and two olive oils. 

Enjoy a fascinating guided tour of the historic wine cellars and to the olive mill through underground tunnels that pass under the villa. 

Buckle up and get ready for some off-roading through ancient woodland and rolling hills, outlined with cypress trees and dotted with rustic farms and churches, to make your way to a typical Tuscan restaurant with stunning views. 

To visit the final wine estate, go deeper into the Chianti hills and enjoy more incredible countryside on your way to a Chianti Classico vineyard. 

As a contrast to the established winery of the morning, enjoy these smaller, award-winning wines that will taste of a combination of ancient tradition and innovation. 

The unique beauty of this area will add to the unforgettable memories you will have created so far. Next, stop in Greve, a picturesque town in Chianti, where you can enjoy a little free time to wind down. Get a coffee, shop or just soak in the unique Italian culture of this idyllic place.

    If I could give this tour 6/5 stars I would. Our tour guide Gloria was an extremely knowledgeable Sommelier who kept us engaged and interested the entire time. You'll learn about all the different red wines of Tuscany. You are provided with plenty of food throughout the tour and lunch is served family style. The vineyards and villas provide breathtaking views and the bus you travel in will definitely give "off-roading" a different meaning. This tour is an absolute must.

    Awesome tour! Lavi, our tour sommelier, and Romolo, our driver, made our food and wine experience on this day a top-notch outing, and was definitely one of our favorite tours in Italy. Lavi explained the details about wine, wine tasting, and the wine history in the Chianti region, and all three stops in the region were informative, relaxing, and fun, as well as tasty with the appetizers and lunch pairings. Romolo expertly navigated the roads, and both deserve 10 stars, if that were possible. Thank you again, Lavi and Romolo!

    Gloria was a fantastic guide. She is a certified sommelier! Charming and hilarious, her knowledge and insight was especially helpful throughout the tour of the breathtaking Chianti Classico region. The driver of the tour, Romolo, did an amazing job driving us through fairly rough terrain and getting us to each destination safely and swiftly. The wineries and lunch stop were all stunning in their natural beauty, and the wines and food throughout the day were delicious! We especially appreciated getting to try seasonal and regional specialties alongside the wines (including truffles, in our case!). We had an amazing time. I would book this tour again in a heartbeat!
