<p>Tuscany wine tour, explore the beautiful wine region of Chianti on a half-day scenic tour from Florence, and enjoy a Tuscan landscape of gently rolling hills and vineyards, studded with cypress trees. Taste super <strong>Chianti wines</strong> and Tuscan products.</p>
Tuscany wine tour, visit the beautiful region of Chianti and immerse yourselves in the picturesque Tuscan scenery that you have always imagined. The beautiful ruby-red colour and the characteristic bouquet with scents of violet are the special features that reveal the identity of one of the most famous wines in the world: chianti wine. This wine comes from the wise blend of Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, and originates from the hilly area from which it draws its name. We will lead you to the discovery of the breathtaking, uncontaminated landscapes that have been cradling the Chianti vineyards for centuries, presenting you a harmony of colours that can only be found in the hills of this region. The sounds, scents and flavours of this land will capture your senses through a unique experience that you will live, relish and experience by visiting ancient churches, medieval castles and small villages where the rhythm of life remains unaltered over time. The tour continues with a visit to a charming wine estate where you will take part in a guided tour of the wine cellars in order to gain insight into the various stages of wine production that includes wine tasting the various wines that the winery produces, paired with samples of sliced cured meats, bruschetta and salami. During the tour you will see the astonishing fortress of Monteriggioni. There you will find some shops specialized in typical Tuscan products, as well as elegant cafés where you can stop and enjoy a coffee or a gelato. Subsequently, the tour includes a second tasting of olive oil and wine in another local winery

We booked a Chianti Half Day Tour, which consisted of two wineries/tastings. Rosa was our guide and she was really funny. Each winery was a little different and I much preferred the first winery, Poggio Ai Laghi. Marco was the guide for this tasting, and he was very passionate about they quality. The wines were great and the offered salami, bread, extra Virgin olive oil, and truffle oil. We made a pit stop at a Castle of Monteriggioni which was an old medieval castle. The next winery showed their process for storing and aging wines, and also had some good tasting wines. One frustration was the lack of concern for time with other group members. Rosa, our guide, was trying very hard to keep us on time and asked that we be back from the castle in 30 mins (by 4:50), but some people strolled back around 5:00-5:05. Two girls were also 15 mins late to show up at the start, and we all had to wait on the bus. This may be common in group tours but its very inconsiderate, and if that bothers you, you may want to book a smaller group or private tour.
Me and my friends decided to book for this tour because we love wine and it was the best choice we could do because we enjoyed seeing the real Italy guided by a very friendly, nice and well prepared guide! I suggest this tour to everyone!!!!
Me and my husband booked this trip and it was amazing. We spent the afternoon in the countryside, we tasted a lot of delicious wine. Carmela and lilo are very nice and we spent a lovely day together. Recommended!
