Led by a guide, travel through the Tuscan hills by a 4x4 off-road vehicle, stopping to visit a wine estate and historic villa, and a cellar specializing in bottles of Chianti Classico. Sample the finest specialties at each stop, and save room for a 3-course meal in the Chianti countryside before making the return trip to Florence.

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 beautiful day from start to finish! Our guide, Gloria, and driver, Marco, made the day perfect, informative, and safe! The Tuscan countryside is beautiful and Gloria taught us so much about Italian culture and of course food! Don't miss this tour... we loved it!

We really enjoyed our wine tour and taste of Chianti. We went to 3 wineries and a really neat small Tuscany town Greve. Our guide was Gloria and we really loved her and all of her stories. She was a lot of fun with all she had to say and tying it into her family. Her knowledge of the area, how wine and olive oil is made and some really neat facts made the day great. Serge the driver was great as well and I'm not sure how he managed to get the bus down some of those roads but he did!!! He got us there and back safely.

We would recommend this tour and our guides to everyone.

Thanks.

This tour was incredible! Lavi was so much fun to hang with all day, and she taught us very useful and interesting information. The 3 wineries we visited were absolutely gorgeous and the lunch and sample food were all delicious. My husband and I loved that we were able to meet other people from around the world throughout the day who were also on the tour. This activity was for sure one of our favorite activities we did on our Italy trip!

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.
