Overview

Experience the famous flavors and beauty of Chianti on a half-day wine tasting tour from Florence. Visit three different wineries, where you’ll learn to sample varietals such as Chianti Classico and Sangiovese like a true Italian, and savor typical Tuscan products like olive oil, pecorino cheese, and prosciutto during an included lunch or dinner. A wine-loving guide arranges all transport and logistics for a delicious, carefree day in wine country.
  • 5-hour Chianti wine and food tour from Florence
  • Great way to escape the city for the day and experience the beautiful Tuscan countryside
  • Taste famous regional reds like Chianti Classico, Chianti Reserva, Sangiovese, and Super Tuscans
  • Tour historic cellars and learn about the barrel-aging process
  • Includes a traditional Tuscan lunch or dinner with wine pairings
  • Leave the driving to a professional and relax aboard a comfortable coach
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
