Traditional Chianti Classico Experience

In less than an hour from Florence, end up in the winding Tuscan countryside to taste the best wines of Chianti. Learn about this wine region that has over 500 years of history including feuds between Siena and Florence. Taste and discover the king grape of Tuscany: Sangiovese! No trip to Tuscany is complete without a winery tour in Chianti Classico tasting the finest producers of both quality and caliber. We taste several wines from Chianti Classico with guided tours of the wine cellars. In between cellar tours, we have time to explore small village towns and break with a rustic Tuscan lunch either at one of the wineries we visit or in one of the small villages nearby. This wine tour is great for 1st time visitors to Tuscany or those just getting to know Tuscan wines.
