Visit of a cellar & wine tasting in an amazing scenary
This is the perfect trip for wine and ancient history lovers, who have already visited Pisa and climbed its world famous Leaning Tower.
You will be involved in a delightful experience: you will visit a winery located in Terriciola, also known as 'Città del Vino', on the road between Pisa and Volterra, in the heart of Tuscany.
Together with the owners you will visit the vineyard and the cellar and end up with the tasting of five high quality Tuscan wines, Chianti included! Then, you will head to the medieval hill town of Peccioli where you will have a delicous lunch in a family run Trattoria!
A professional driver and Martina will pick you up inside the port of Livorno. Delightful drive by minivan to Pisa countryside, meanwhile I will give you information on the area.
Our destination is a winery located on the top of a green hill with a amazing view on the Era valley.
The owner will be waiting for us in the patio of the stone farmhouse (it dates up to XVIII century). After a brief introduction, we will start a 2 hour delightful tour: we will visit the vineyard and the cellar, where he will give you information on harvesting time, wine making procedures, maturing in different tanks/barriques, bottling. After that, you will enter a beautiful room with volts ceiling, where you will taste five brands of high quality wines (bread, olives, salame and mineral water will be at disposal, too).
Then you will head to the cosy village of Peccioli for a delicious lunch in a family run Trattoria where they serve fresh homemade local dishes and a must try - 'cantuccini and vin santo'!

We have had wonderful experiences with ToursByLocals around the world, but this tour was extra special. I had asked Martina to show us something off the tourist track, and she obliged by coordinating a lovely day of local food, wine, truffle hunting(!) and friendly people.
