Tuscany Wine Trail
The “Tuscan Wine Trail” is a day tour to one of the most evocative and well-known wine regions in the world: the Chianti. We'll take you into the heart of the Chianti region of Tuscany, the “Chianti Classico.” Located just south of Florence, the hills of the Chianti region you'll visit are more than beautiful – they are quintessential Tuscany with its medieval hamlets and olive groves, cypresses, and vineyards. Sit back and take in the marvels of the Tuscan countryside from the comfortable seat of the minivan we'll drive you in.
Some of the best wines in the world are produced here with a perfect blend of Sangiovese, Canaiolo, and other varieties of red grapes. Each winemaker has his secret, and the Chianti wines reflect the knowledge and tradition of generations. On this tour you'll get acquainted with the history of wine and the secret of how to keep these long lasting traditions alive. You'll learn about the Chianti Classico with its unmistakable Black Rooster logo that guarantees the authentic taste and provenance. And we'll introduce you to the different characteristics of wine, how to distinguish the acidity, the taste, and how to pair certain flavors with foods.
This full day experience includes the visit to two wineries and their cellars. You'll experience the products during the wine and olive oil tasting. No day in Tuscany is complete without at least one delicious three-course meal: you'll get to enjoy a delicious traditional lunch. There are many photo opportunities, including in the medieval town we visit. Take this tour, and you’ll experience a great day together with like-minded wine lovers.
