Chianti is the famous area in Tuscany characterized by rolling hills dotted by vineyards, cypress trees, olive trees.

While in the car I will educate you a bit about the region you are about to visit, its history, culture & wines.
We will head for our first winery where you will have a chance to explore the cellars, taste the wines and discuss them with the winemaker. The wines you will typically taste are Chianti Classico, Riserva, Super Tuscan, Vin Santo. For lunch I will suggest something small and rustic in a perfect Tuscan style! . . Perhaps in a winery?

In the second part of the day you'll visit another highly rated winery. Together with the previous experience you'll start to appreciate the range of aromas and flavors that Chianti Classico wines have to offer. Should you prefer to skip a town stop I can arrange to visit a third winery. You just let me know what you'ld like to do and if at all feasible I'll plan for it.

Back to your hotel by 6pm with full bellies, a happy heart and great memories

A Recent Review of this tour

What a great tour! Massimo was our enthusiastic master of ceremonies for our wine tour of Chianti. He is very knowledgeable and knew how to zero in on what was of interest to us. He adapted the information flow perfectly: not too much, not too little, but just enough to make sure we could fully appreciate our experience. He is also very flexible: when we decided we wanted to squeeze in just one more winery, he made it happen in short order. Many thanks, Massimo! Ciao!
