The history of a wine mixed with the history of the whole region of Tuscany


Chianti - a word that evokes history, wine and good food, all at the same time.

The most famous Chianti vineyards in the world stretch out on the slopes of the lower Apennines south of Florence, as do olive groves, on land that is completely uncontaminated, with wonderful panoramic views in every season.

We will have a very scenic drive across one of the most beautiful area of Italy, following the Chiantigiana, the old Roman road from Florence to Rome. We can stop at the Second World War Cemetery for the American dead.

Chianti, however, reveals itself with a visit to the castles, all of them still producing wine. Many of them belong to famous families such as the Verrazzano, the Vespucci, the Uzzano. . . just visiting the properties, some of them built more than a thousand years ago, lets us understand the strategic importance of these castles once fiefs, and their wine.

Our trip includes also visits to the villages of Castellina and Radda in Chianti.
Wine tasting can be organized .
Fullday 8-9 hours.
