Enjoy an unforgettable experience in the Chianti Classico wine country. Depart from Santa Maria Novella Train Station in Florence, and during the 45 minutes trip your driver/guide will give you an introduction about the Tuscan territory and wine culture.
Leaving the highway you’ll immerse yourself in the picturesque Tuscan landscape, with views of one of the most famous areas of the Chianti wine region. At the first estate, a wine expert will be waiting for you and the experience will start with an overview of the farm, followed by detailed explanations about the production process. Along the way, you'll taste three different wines and fresh olive oil.
Since each farm has its own unique technique in producing wine, the second stop will give you the chance to compare them. After the guided visit of the old wine cellars, conclude your experience with tastings of different wines and olive oil, paired with local Tuscan specialties such as cheese, salami, cold cuts, and bruschetta.

This was the best excursion we selected the whole trip, all because of Leo the driver, singer/guitar player extraordinaire. He was personable, informative and funny.

This was one of the best tours we've taken! The tour operator was Prestige Rent and our guide, Daniele and our driver, Angelo were terrific! An amazing half day trip to visit 2 wineries where we were given heavy pours, copious amounts of bruschetta, olive oil, salami and truffle tastings! I learned so much about wine from this part of the country - this tour was superb!

My cousins and I booked the tour with Leo for a visit to the Chianti hills for wine tasting. Leo was the perfect guide with his upbeat demeanor and sharing of interesting facts about the Tuscany wine region. The van was air conditioned and Leo is an excellent driver. Due to a wedding scheduled at the normal stop, our first winery visit was Villa Poggio Torselli (a fill in)- and what a jaw dropping place. We pulled up to the tall iron gates that opened up to the lane leading to the "queen of all villas" built in 1427. The Villa and gardens are beautiful and what you would imagine on a Tuscany visit, We sampled the top notch wines with bread, olive oils and cheeses in a large room with rustic tables and the summer rainstorm crashing outside, complete with thunder and lightning. It was one of the highlights of my trip to Italy. We then traveled to the second winery and took a tour of the facility and sampled wines, cold cuts, cheese and bread. Leo even pulled out his guitar and sang a song for us.

I give this tour an easy 5 stars!
