Castle and Chianti wine tour

Combining exquisite wines with an unforgettable medieval setting - lunch - guided wine tasting.

Castle and Chianti wine tour from Florence

Guided Tour in English

Nestled next to the city of Florence, the old Chianti Rufina wine region was a highly contested area and is therefore saturated with gorgeous medieval castles and keeps. Over time, many of these castles have been converted into world-famous wineries. 


Highlights
  • Small-Group tour, a maximum of 8 people.
  • Guided 7 hr excursion by our English speaking wine expert.
  • Discover two quality wineries in Chianti Rufina in a medieval historical setting (with tastings of Chianti Rufina, Riserva, and Super Tuscans).
  • Learn by a professional Sommelier how to approach wine and olive oil.
  • Enjoy a delicious typical Tuscan meal.

 


Throughout this tour, you will experience the magic of the old Chianti region with its rolling hills and quaint villages. You will have the opportunity to visit medieval cellars, enjoy wonderful Tuscan cuisine, and learn everything you could ever hope to know about the wines and winemaking process.

Our guides will introduce you to the traditional wines of Chianti like Chianti Rufina Riserva while also giving you the chance to try IGT “Super Tuscans.” While we take you to some of the most famous wineries in the region, we also pride ourselves in giving you a flavor of the local culture. Therefore, one of the wineries we visit is on a much smaller scale and is often family owned. This enables you to connect with the proprietor on a much more personal level while he/she shows you the finer aspects of viticulture.

Lunch will take place in the quaint countryside and is the best chance for you to enjoy a 3-course fresh Tuscan meal.
