Halvdagsvinrundtur i Chianti från Florens
Njut av de fantastiska omgivningarna under resan, som tar dig förbi bergens traditionella travertinbyar med utsikt över fälten som täcks med vinrankor och olivlundar. Färden fortsätter till Chianti Fiorentino, där några av Italiens mest prisbelönta röda viner produceras. Stanna till och besök en välkänd vingård för din första provning.
Efter ett vänligt toskanskt välkomnande börjar du med en rundtur i vingårdens historiska vinkällare. Du får se var druvorna krossas och var vinet får mogna och senare buteljeras, samtidigt som du får reda på några av hemligheterna om Toscanas vintillverkning.
Därefter får du ta plats vid bordet och prova vingårdens olika viner. Vintyperna kan variera men vanligtvis serveras ett glas Chianti Classico, Chianti Riserva, det typiskt toskanska Vin Santo (dessertvin) eller ett prestigefyllt vitt vin. Upplev de komplexa och fruktiga smaker som är framträdande i toskanska viner och få provningstips som hjälper dig att förstå de olika druvornas egenskaper.
Rundturen fortsätter sedan till den pittoreska medeltidsbyn Greve, födelsestad för den välkända navigatören Giovanni da Verrazzano, där Chiantiregionens viktigaste vinfestival äger rum varje år. Här får du tid att på egen hand gå runt och titta på det berömda stora torget med dess karakteristiska arkader, marknaden och de lokala hantverkarnas butiker.
Sedan åker du längs den antika vägen Via Chiantigiana som går genom Chianti Classico. Du kan beundra den fantastiska utsikten över de böljande kullarna som den här delen av Toscana är så känd för.
Sedan kommer vi till en familjeägd vingård i Siena-området av Chianti Classico, känt för sitt utmärkta vin. Här får du ett varmt välkomnande av den passionerade vinodlaren och efter en guidad rundtur i vinkällaren och den väldoftande trädgården väntar en utsökt provning av fyra olika sorters viner och lokala produkter.
Rundturens sista stopp är Castellina*. Den etruskiska bergsbyn kännetecknas av den imponerande fästningen och är belägen i Chiantis mest livfulla och vackra del. Promenera längs den pittoreska övertäckta medeltidsgatan Via delle Volte och låt reseledaren guida dig till det charmiga historiska centret med pittoreska hus, torg och butiker.

In addition to the 2 wineries, you get to visit a couple of towns in the Chianti/Siena areas, which were quite nice. The 2 wineries were awesome to see and the wine was tasty! We were able to order some bottles and ship some home to the United States. Would definitely recommend this tour!
I was expecting that they will actually give a tour of the facility and show the actual tanks. The two facilities we visited talked about the differences in Chianti wines. It was more of a taste few wines and then buy or order wines and olive oil if you want. If you also went on tours like Cinque Terre then there is not much new you see on this trip.
This was an ok tour, however I was really looking forward to seeing the areas where the wine was made and the other behind-the-scenes stuff that was mentioned in the description, but unfortunately we did not do any of that. We did go to all of the locations and tasted 8 wines in total with opportunities to purchase. Would recommend as a tasting even though it felt a little rushed. Great way to see the Italian countryside without driving.
When I booked this I had the impression we would be visiting 3 or 4 wineries learning about them and their wines in a relaxing flow from place to place. Not so much. BUT what it ended up being was fun. You are with a bus of people and you visit 2 wineries and 2 charming little towns. You are on the bus a lot, but Chianti wine country is beautiful so the rides are worthwhile. The 2 wineries are very different so not repetitive. In one of the towns I experienced an exchange between residents that was so beautiful it is my favorite memory of Italy and maybe humanity. I wouldn’t have seen it if not on this tour. Our guide Keiko was nice and funny. So! If you book this, be prepared to get off and on the bus frequently, wear comfy shoes and plan to just roll with it!
The afternoon was marvellous! Amazing wine, two distinctive winery and the Toscane view his breathtaking. But they should get rid of the greve city stop. Nothing to see and in 20-30min you almost don't have time for a glass of wine. Give more time in Castilla, the parking is far, and only the walking distance to the Main Street you have to go back to the bus!!! After the 1st tasting, give time for a glass of wine in the winery, go straight to the next winery after give a nice 50min for castila city!!!
Generally ok value for the money but too long and too short at the two visited wineries. The visit to the second town was not great and time would have been better spent shortening the trip by an hour or giving time for a third vineyard
This was a very enjoyable tour. We learned a lot about Chianti wine and had a lot shipped home to us. Our guide was a big help and took the time to answer everyone’s questions.
This half day wine tour is a nice getaway to Chianti region. We visited two wineries, drove thru Tuscany winery area. The tour guide Keiko is v humorous and friendly. My friend and I truly enjoyed this tour. Thx Keiko, the restaurant you recommended us was soooo good!
This was a great tour. If you have never been to a winery this is good. Other than tasting and their knowledge of different grapes from different regions, most of the stuff on aging etc. is standard.Maybe because we live close to and are familiar with Napa/Sonoma. The locations in Tuscany are beautiful hillsides and the villas are gorgeous. If nothing get out of the City tours of museums and monuments and get some fresh air and perspective. The guide was good.
Great trip for the price. The second winery was much better than the first in regards to what they provided food/wine, the education aspect and the ambiance. Lorenzo was terrific. Eat a large meal before and bring a bottle of wine and some snacks to drink/eat on the bus and you will have a great trip :)
Would’ve been nice to have less time in the town and more time at the wineries. I felt very rushed at both wineries and would’ve liked more time to walk around both to shop and take in the views
No only did we have excellent presentations at two wineries, we got to see the beautiful Tuscan countryside along with commentary from our guide. A great experience
Great afternoon of tasting and learning about the region and its wines. Easy to book, directions to pick up were clear and our guide was excellent (funny and informative). You visit two wineries which are quite different - and both excellent - and two little towns in the region allowing anyone without a car to still appreciate the countryside.
Great tour to learn about the wines of the region, even if you are already familiar with Italian wine. Our tour guide was incredibly personable and entertaining. Plenty of time to taste wine, take photos, and enjoy the villages. This is definitely not a small group tour, a full large bus, but that did not affect the quality of the wine tasting experience. I highly recommend this tour.
This was an amazing trip. It far exceeded our expectations. Our tour guide Keiko she did an amazing job. We decided on this tour to add the dinner stop option. Do it, you will not regret it. Eating at an one star Michelin rated over 10 years in a row for this ratingrestaurant Antica Trattoria La Toppa was amazing an the setting on a hill top tiny village was beautiful. When booking this tour take the option for dinner and pre order the T-bone steak as that option I think it is only available in advance. This was a amazing day and would do it all over again. The wine tasting experiences were great and informative, driving in the hills were beautiful.
For the price of this tour, it is totally worth it. We were able to see two towns in the Chianti region and visited two wineries as well. The wine tasting was great experience and we learned a lot from the somellier. The wines were good and pretty affordable compared to the Napa Valley wines. It was amazing to be able to see Tuscany and the vineyards. Just a truly great experience. It was all worth it.
