Tour Details

Discover the beauty, flavor, and culture of the Chianti region when you embark on this Chianti Region Wine Tasting Half-Day Trip from Florence. Your knowledgeable guide will take you through the Chianti landscape, where you can see olive groves, Romanesque churches, quaint farm houses, luxurious villas, imposing castles, and lush vineyards scattered along the hillsides.

The Chianti region has been cared for by farmers for over 3,000 years. The rich soil has had centuries of nurturing and care, and you will taste its history with every sip of wine that you take. On your Chianti wine tour, visit one of the most famous wineries in the region. Arrive at a castle surrounded by vineyards, where you will get a traditional Tuscan welcome. Visit the historical cellars and charming castle with a guide who can share the fascinating details of this remarkable location. As you tour the area, learn the secrets of the wine-producing process and let your palette expand as you are introduced to local wines. Snacks will be served to accompany your wine-tasting experience.

Continue on to the picturesque medieval village of Greve, birthplace of the famous navigator Giovanni da Verrazzano, where the most important wine fair of the Chianti region takes place every year. Take some time to admire the famous main square of the ancient market with its characteristic arcades, and to browse through the local artisan shops.

Moving along the ancient Via Chiantigiana, cross the heart of the Chianti Classico, admiring the breathtaking views of the rolling hills that made this part of Tuscany so famous. You will then reach a family-run winery located in the Sienese area of the Chianti Classico, which stands out for the excellent quality of its wines. Here you will be warmly welcomed by its passionate winemaker and, after the guided tour of the cellars and the lovely aromatic garden, a delicious tasting of four different wines and local products will be waiting for you.

The last stop of the tour is Castellina, a fortified hilltop village of Etruscan origin, among the most lively and picturesque of Chianti, and characterized by an imposing fortress. Walking through the picturesque medieval covered street Via delle Volte, discover the charming historical center and its picturesque houses, squares, and shops as a fantastic conclusion to your Chainti Wine Tasting Tour.
