Stop for the visit to a distinguished wine estate, where you’ll tour the historic cellars. Learn the winemaker’s secrets as you see where the grapes are crushed, and where the wine is matured and bottled.

Then, get to tasting! Enjoy a glass of Chianti Classico, Chianti Reserve, Tuscan dessert wine or a prominent white wine. Learn the complex characteristics of each from your guide while you taste.

Afterward, head to the medieval village of Greve, where the most important wine fair of the Chianti region is held each year. Explore the main square and peruse the local artisan shops.

Continue to a family-run winery located in the Sienese area of the Chianti Classico. Take a guided tour of the cellars from the winemaker before heading to the garden, where a tasting of four wines and local products will be waiting for you.

Then make your way to Castellina, a hilltop village characterized by its large fortress and Etruscan settlements. Stroll past the medieval street of Via delle Volte and explore the local shops and squares before making your way back to Florence with your guide.

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.

The wine tastings and vineyards were great. We enjoyed the tour but had difficulty understanding our guide. The last stop in Greve could have been omitted. Nothing really to see.

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.

The wineries were very good, particularly the second one. The tour guide was okay but didn't seem to have much energy for what she was showing us. Beautiful countryside would love to go back.

When I signed up for a wine tour, I expected an actual wine tour. Instead, the first stop we got two tastes of 4 different wines, learned nothing of the wine process and got maybe 10 minutes to”tour” the vineyard, aka - walk outside and try a grape. The second stop was at a very small town where we were told we had 30 minutes free time. The tour guide told us very little about the town and made no suggestions as to what to see during our 30 minutes. Most of the places were closed. The 3rd stop, Poggio Amorelli, was great! We actually learned a good deal about the wine process and the vineyard host did a great job of telling us all about the wines and balsamic vinegars we tasted. I did enjoy this stop. The last stop was another town which was better than the first. There was a bit more to see. If you’re looking for a “wine tour”, this is not it. I would not recommend this tour.

The stops for eating and shopping were not long enough, traveling with elder disabled and was disregarded when taken to Greve for a long walk uphill to be quickly returned to bus.

We don't really know a lot about Italian wines, but we knew enough to want to go Tuscany and get a first-hand experience. The title says
