What you can expect

With your expert guide, enjoy a comprehensive introduction to the region and its wines while touring two of the region's best wine estates. As you sample the winery’s signature wines, you’ll receive tips about the art of wine tasting and pairing wine with food.

Our first stop of the day is at a beautiful winery belonging to one of the most prestigious Italian aristocratic families. Here we taste three wines paired with cheese and two olive oils but first, there’s a fascinating guided tour of the historic wine cellars and to the olive mill through underground tunnels that pass under the villa.

Now buckle-up and get ready for some off-roading through ancient woodland and rolling hills, outlined with cypress trees and dotted with rustic farms and churches, to make our way to a typical Tuscan restaurant with stunning views. Here is where we will really get your taste buds tingling with delicious food and wine. You will not want to leave!

Next we will stop in Greve, a picturesque town in Chianti where you can enjoy a little free time to wind down and get a coffee, shop or just soak in the unique Italian culture of this idyllic place. Here you will also buy a selection of typical Salumi (cured meats) from one of Italy’s most famous butchers which you will enjoy later at the second winery.

Finally we go deeper into the Chianti hills and enjoy more incredible countryside on our way to a Chianti Classico vineyard. As a contrast to the established winery of the morning, this one is smaller and less known though does have two award winning wines which you will taste as you find out how ancient tradition and innovation have been combined to create them. As the last stop you will relax and enjoy the special light at this time of day, adding to the unforgettable memories you will have created so far. The perfect way to end the perfect day!

We loved it! We met Martina, our guide, at the Walkabout Florence office and it started off great and got better all day. She was very knowledgeable, friendly and fun. Probably one of the best guides and tours ever!

Unique experience that’s worth it!

Christopher W

It’s a long day at 10ish hours but totally worth the investment. Visited 3 wineries, one of which I will never forget. Sampled cheese, wine, meats, olive oil and more. Great lunch. Tour of countryside was amazing. Florence is awesome but it was nice to get away from city for a day and see more of the region. Guide Martina was excellent. Do it!

EXCELLENT TOUR!!!!

Cep09393

This tour was absolutely AMAZING! It was even better than we could have imagined. The tour was well organized and communication leading up to and during the tour was very clear. We really appreciated the level of detail that this tour included and that we visited smaller wineries which made the entire experience more intimate and relaxing. Our tour guide Martina was SO GREAT and really made this an unforgettable experience. She was so knowledgeable about wine and the region in general - we learned so much! This was a long day (~10hrs) but totally worth it! I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

Amazing tour, it will be worth every penny.

samjamie88

Yes, this tour is more expensive than the other wine tasting tours available but it is seriously worth every penny. Firstly, the wine you get to taste is lovely and very different from each of the 3 vineyards. Secondly, the scenery you see throughout the day is unbelievable and the selected vineyards are non commercial and quiet which was great which also meant you got taste wines that you wouldn’t be able to buy in the supermarket. Thirdly, the food, I am always sceptical of the food in organised trips as usually you get the bare minimum and not always excellent quality. However, the food was amazing throughout the day and plentiful ...
