Excursion in Chianti
Explore the marvelous Chianti Wine region and its rolling hills. Leave the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy a relaxing afternoon in the Tuscan countryside, famous worldwide for its nature, small villages, vineyards and gentle hills. Let yourself be enchanted by the colors and perfumes of the Chianti countryside - here all the streets lead to a cellar, to a castle or to a farm.
Your tour will start in the heart of the Chianti vineyards which produce some of the world's most famed wines. The estate owners will welcome you personally, and offer you an appetizer with “crostini toscani”, “olio extravergine di oliva” and the tasting of a delicate “Vino Chianti”. You will visit the cellar and learn the secrets of wine processing.
Then we move on to Greve in Chianti which is without doubt one of the most famous and best known Italian Chianti wine villages. Here you will have time to explore the intriguing streets and alleys as well as the central square with its numerous medieval buildings and picturesque artisan shops.
Your day is not over yet - nestled among the olive trees, gentle hills and vineyards, another wine tasting awaits you. The estate owners will introduce you to their wines as well as to some of the delicious regional products. And before you leave, you’ll take some easy steps towards becoming a perfect sommelier!
Your Tuscan afternoon will conclude with the beautiful drive back to Florence.
