What You Can Expect

Taste of Chianti: Tuscan Cheese, Wine and Lunch from Florence

Enjoy the wine that the Chianti has to offer

Meet your guide in central Florence and hop aboard an air-conditioned, 4x4 minibus. Watch the city streets transform into the rolling hillside of Chianti, lined with vineyards and olive groves.

Your first stop of the day is at a winery belonging to one of the most prominent Italian families. Taste three wines paired with cheese and two olive oils, and enjoy a guided tour of the historic wine cellars. Travel to the olivemill through the villa's underground tunnels, as well as to the garden.

Afterward, head to a Tuscan restaurant and settle down for a 3-course meal, including regional specialties such as two different types of fresh pasta and two glasses of fine Chianti wine. (See the Itinerary for a sample menu).

Continue to the charming town of Greve-in-Chianti, where the Chianti Classico wine festival is held each year. Pick up a selection of typical salumi (cured meats) from one of Italy’s most famous butchers to enjoy later at the second winery.

Enjoy the last of your afternoon at a small, award-winning winery that specializes in Chianti Classico wine. Hear about the winemaking process while sipping and swirling delicious varietals. Your tour will conclude with a ride back to Florence.

A nice way to get a glimpse all too brief of the beautiful Tuscan countryside. Not a big fan of Chianti wines, and still not after this tour. But we learned a few things about wineries and vinyards, even though this was our 4th wine tour. This included information about olive oil processing, and it was an enjoyable tour.

Lavi and the whole tour was the highlight of our 6 days in the region. This is a long day at 10 hrs but is worth every penny and every minute. Lavi as a guide is highly knowledgeable and great fun as a guide. The 3 vineyard tours were brilliant, lunch was exceptional and the views were stunning through out. my wife and I have been doing these type of tours around the world for over 25 years and this was the best by far. Lavi you are a star and the tour was truely amazing. Many thanks Tim and Tina.

My husband and I absolutely loved this wine tour. The views were amazing and the wine was even better. Our guide, Martina, was very knowledgeable and personable. It was our favorite tour while in Italy!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2018

Our guide, Martina was excellent, very informative and easy going. We had about 20 people on the tour and we were in a small bus (the description said 4x4 vehicle). I prefer smaller group tours but this worked out fine. We not only learned about wines but also about olive oils. The wineries were beautiful and not overly packed it’s other tours. Our wine pairings and meals/snacks were delicious. It’s a spectacular part of Italy.
