The drive from Florence to the Chianti countryside is short and peaceful. As you look at the window, you will see stunning views of the rolling hills, medieval towns, luxurious villas, and of course - endless vineyards!
Our first stop will be at an authentic, family-owned wine estate. A local will show you throughout the vineyards and cellars, as you learn the secrets of making world-renowned Chianti wine. The producer will share their experience working at the winery and answer any of your curiosities about the Tuscan lifestyle or making wine! After, you can sample some pristine Chianti wines accompanied by fresh olive oil and some delicious, Tuscan snacks.
Next, we will head to the “Gateway to Chianti,” or the small town of Greve in Chianti. This ancient village is most famous for its unique, triangular piazza. Your guide will show you this central point, and you will have some free time to explore the charming village.
As the sun starts to set, it will be time for our final destination of the day. As we arrive, you will see the best was truly saved for last. A beautiful, Tuscan dinner will be prepared for you among the vines. You will indulge in seasonal, Tuscan specialty courses paired with exquisite wines produced by the estate itself.
This is a memorable day of exploration, fantastic wine, and even better food. Don’t forget your camera!
