What to expect

Enjoy an unforgettable small-group wine experience in the Chianti Classico countryside. You will depart from Florence, and during the 45-minutes trip, your driver/guide will give you an introduction about Tuscany and its wine culture. As soon as arrived in the countryside, you'll immerse yourself in the picturesque Tuscan landscape, with the breathtaking views of one of the most famous areas of the Tuscan wine region.

At the first winery, a wine expert will be waiting for you and the experience will start with an overview of the farm followed by explanations about the millenary tradition of winemaking; all your curiosity about wine and olive oil will be satisfied during the tour and the tasting of different wines and fresh olive oil.

After a very short ride you'll reach the second estate; here, to maximize your time, the visit will be focused on the differences between the two places, so the second stop will give you the opportunity to compare them, and after the visit, to conclude your wine experience, you will taste other wines and olive oil, paired with local Tuscan specialties such as cheese, salami, cold cuts and bruschetta. Your half-day small-group wine tour from Florence will end with your return to the departure point.
