2017-09-20Chianti & Castle Wine Tour in Tuscany
My friend and our teenage daughters (17 and 19) went on the Castles and Chianti wine tour at the end of July, and it was the highlight of our week in Italy! I was a little worried about the teens on an all day tour, as neither are lovers of wine, but the stories of the 2 wineries and Fabian's amazing knowledge of wine (presented in a very unpretentious way) entertained us all. We went to 2 small, gorgeous wineries in the Tuscan countryside and tasted 10 wines and some grappa. There is no pressure to buy the wine (but it was so good, we sent home 12 bottles!). In between, we stopped at a beautiful restaurant for lunch, and more wine (included in the cost). It was a very small group - just the 4 of us and 1 other couple. We learned a lot from Fabian, and he also gave us great restaurant and Tuscan beach recommendations. An amazing day!
