"Wine is sunlight held together by water" Galileo Galilei
Chianti is in the very heart of Tuscany, spanning the Provinces of Florence and Siena, and since 1300, the Gallo Nero (black rooster) has been the symbol of its fertile vineyards. It is the epitome of our romantic image of Italy; the rolling hills, cypress trees, vineyards, stone farmhouses and medieval towns such as Siena and San Gimignano, which we shall be visiting on the route.
After a short drive south of Florence, in a comfortable, air-conditioned 8 seat minivan with English speaking licensed driver and me as your guide, you will find yourselves immersed in a fairytale setting, and discover the ancient art of winemaking. Chianti Classico is one of the best wines to pair with food, it is synonymous of freshness, elegance and complexity as you will discover visiting a small privately owned winery and being pampered by your Tuscan hosts, who will prepare a delicious 3 course lunch accompanied by a selection of Chianti wines and an informative tour of the winery and vineyards. Sit back and enjoy!
