Tuscany is a collection of sensory memories- the sound of wind rustling through olive groves, the beautiful sight of its landscape, and the refined scent of a Chianti as it’s poured from a bottle. Perhaps the one of the most famous wines, Chianti is a versatile red, with floral and fruity notes that make it a perfect pair for many dishes. Our half day tour will take you through the Chianti region, where generations have devoted their lives to producing this DOC protected product. Touring the rolling hillsides, you will be enthralled by the post card perfect scenery of farmhouses, vineyards, villas, ancient hamlets and medieval castles that combine in harmony. You will stop at two different local wineries where you will discover the traditional methods used to produce Chianti wine: from the vineyards to the cellars, from the picking to the bottling, you will learn why this wine is so special.

A perfect and delectable Chianti experience!
