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.

Our tour guide Stefano was charming and helpful as he prepared us for our afternoon of wine tasting and visiting the 2 vineyards scheduled for that day. Each location was well prepared for us, offering their wines, balsamic vinegars, olive oils and snacks. We loved every minute of our times learning about the vineyards, tasting the wines, touring the facilities. Was a wonderful day!
