Chianti Half-Day Wine Tour from Florence

Chianti Region Wine Tasting Half-Day Trip from Florence

After leaving central Florence by air-conditioned coach, journey into the beautiful Tuscan countryside with your guide. Travel past the olive groves, vineyards and rolling hills of one of the most prestigious winemaking regions in the world before arriving in Chianti Fiorentino.

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.

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.

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

Had a really great day on the wine tour, visited a couple of lovely vineyards and a picturesque small town. I went along as a single traveler and really enjoyed the day, you soon get talking with others after a couple of wines. The tastings are pretty small but you can also buy an extra glass of wine at each vineyard if you wish. Great way to see the countryside.

We went on a tour with Eugenia. She was extremely knowledgeable and provided so much information. She was even able to answer some unrelated questions about the local vegetation. Very impressive.

We toured two wineries. The first one was small and quaint. (The wine was priced cheaper at this one!) The other was much larger. Both beautiful and provided really great tastings.


There were two stops in the middle of the tour in two small towns. The stops were very short. Be sure to have lunch prior to the tour!


Overall, well worth the money. Beautiful views that we wouldn’t have been able see otherwise. It was about an hour drive from Florence to the wineries. And our tour was amazing. She was so approachable and knowledgeable. She even walked us to catch a taxi after the tour was over. We had a great experience!

This is a good value half day tour as we had a good 7 hours. Both of the wineries were great. The second one was made even more enjoyable by our host, Jean Luigi who kept us well entertained. The bites of local produce were also well done. There wasn’t much at the two places we stopped and you certainly don’t get much time to explore but it was nice to stretch the legs. Kudos to the coach driver for getting around some of those turns! Met some nice friendly people and the host was informative without overdoing it. Would recommend if you want to dabble your toes into Chianti

My husband and I were very happy with the tour company. The driver and guide was fantastic. We never felt rushed and yet we got to see a lot more than we expected.

Pretty fun tour. The guide was funny, and we definitely got to explore Tuscany. We went to two wineries, both were super fun, and we saw two charming towns. Great taste of Tuscany.
