Wine tours in Tuscany

“You are in Tuscany, it is a fairytale?...”

Tuscany wines with your personal guide. Wine tasting in Chianti and other areas

At the end of the XIX century during the Belle Époque, with Europe’s economic success and flourishing interest in the culture and art, the British discovered the healing effect of the Tuscan landscape. The soft green hills, reminiscent of the sea, neatly lined vineyards and fortified medieval villages have not changed over time and look as just as they did in the frescoes of the XV century painters.

There are many wine tours that we can do from Florence. From 4 to 8 hours long. The tours include the guide and the car with the professional driver. From 2 to 7 persons.

The most famous wine area in Tuscany is Chianti, just 50 km from Florence.

The area in the direction to the sea (Pisa) is also famous for it's excellent wines.

The program of the tour depends on your requests and usualy includes: 

-1-2 small medieval  villages with the old parish churches, a monastry with the XV century wall paintings, panoramic views

-1-2 visits of vineyards and winery with the cellar barrels and wine tasting in a villa or a castle 

- lunch of tuscany meals (on request)

- the panoramic views of Tuscan countryside with vineyards

-fairytale fortresses and villas or castles with Renaissance gardens,

-combining a beautiful walk with the wine tasting and, if you wish, a lunch. We can stop in a nearby village to visit an ancient church and then try the Tuscan red wine filled aromas of berries and violets. Visit of the cellar, with lunch and wine tasting, should be reserved in advance for a particular hour. Your personal guide will do it for you. We shall prepare the itinerary according to your need. Chianti red wines are traditionally considered to be among the best Italian wines.
