What To Expect
Stop for the visit to a distinguished wine estate, where you tour the historic cellars. Learn the winemaker’s secrets as you see where the grapes are crushed, and where the wine is matured and bottled.
Then, get to tasting—enjoy a glass of Chianti Classico, Chianti Reserve, Tuscan dessert wine, or a prominent white wine. Learn the complex characteristics of each from your guide while you taste.
Afterward, head to the medieval village of Greve, where the most important wine fair of the Chianti region is held each year. Explore the main square and peruse the local artisan shops.
Continue to a family-run winery. Take a guided tour of the cellars from the winemaker before heading to the garden, where a tasting of wines and local products are waiting for you.
Then make your way to Castellina, a hilltop village characterized by its large fortress and Etruscan settlements. Stroll past the medieval street of Via delle Volte and explore the local shops and squares before making your way back to Florence with your guide.
