What to expect

Explore the Tuscan countryside on this private day trip from Florence. With a wine expert as your personal guide, you’ll travel by minivan through the landscape of the famous Chianti wine region, with stops in Greve, Panzano, and Montefioralle. Learn the secrets behind the winemaking process as you go, and visit a winery for a tasting plus lunch (not included). You’ll have time to browse traditional artisan workshops, too.

Your driver will pick you up at your accommodation in Florence and head to the Chianti area, home to the classic Chianti wine. The borders of the Chianti region extend to the provinces of Florence and Siena, covering the area between the two cities up to the east towards the Valdarno. Discover one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world with its cypresses trees outlining the skyline and its vineyards.

This area is often used as a movie set and as a source of inspiration by amazing photographers. Stop in Greve in Chianti, enjoy a coffee and do some shopping in the lovely square where you will admire artisans and butchers as in the old days. The guide will tell you about Giovanni da Verrazzano, the Italian popular explorer who discovered the Hudson Bay and was born here more than 500 years ago.

Your tour in Tuscany continues at a local winery where you'll meet the owner, who will open the cellars just for you. Learn how the famous Chianti wine is produced, the different stages of aging and the different barrels. The visit usually ends with a wine tasting accompanied by snacks, cheese and ham.
