What You Can Expect

Half-Day Chianti Tour to 3 Wineries with Wine Tastings and Meal

Have fun learning all about wine in Tuscany

Meet your guide and climb aboard a comfortable coach near the Ponte Vecchio in the morning. Relax and enjoy the ride as you leave the city behind and pass through the rolling hills and olive groves of the Tuscan countryside.

The first stop is Fattoria Montecchio winery, a family-run estate offering a great introduction to the heritage and varietals of the Chianti region. Learn about the olive farm and vineyards, and taste three different wines along with silky olive oil. Continue on to Casa Sola winery for a tour of the historic cellars and a lesson in the traditional barrel-aging process, followed by a tasting of another three wines including Chianti Classico and other regional reds.

Having worked up an appetite, get a lesson in the art of food and wine pairing at the next stop, Casa Emma. Savor a typical Tuscan meal featuring antipasti such as pecorino cheese, prosciutto, salami and bruschetta, along with delicious homemade pasta and cantuccini almond biscotti for dessert. During the meal, sip a selection of estate wines including Super Tuscans paired to bring out each course’s flavors.

After a delightful morning in the countryside, the 5-hour tour concludes back at the original departure point in Florence.

Caterina with Grape tours was our guide for this very amazing wine tour. We visited three vineyards and had a wonderful lunch at the last one. We learned so much about the Chianti Classico region and the wonderful wines and olive oils produced there. We can't wait for our wine purchase to arrive from Casa Sola. Thank you, Caterina and Grape wine tours for such a memorable day.

Excellent value! Amazing wineries with a delicious lunch. Our guide was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor too. If you're staying near the ponte vecchio their office is about 6 mins away. We hit the museum circuit pretty hard the two days prior, so this excursion gave our trip Balance

A great experience! We had so much fun on this tour. Our guide, Adrienne, was very knowledgeable and friendly. We were met at each of the wineries by a guide specific to the winery. Generous samples at tastings and laid back atmosphere. Lunch was also very good ate at Casa Emma winery. The tour group maximum is already small and our group only had 12 people total, so any questions got lots of attention. This is one of my favourite tours from our whole trip!

This was such a wonderful tour, due to an accident early on in our trip, I had some physical limitations including the use of a wheelchair. Tom was our guide and he could not have been more accommodating. The tour itself was really amazing, we tasted some wonderful wines, had some of the most beautiful scenery to enjoy and really learned a lot about tasting and enjoying wines. I would highly recommend this tour and when we have the opportunity to return to Florence, we will certainly take this tour again.
