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 wines paired with cheese and olive oils, and enjoy a guided tour of the historic wine cellars. Travel to the olive mill through the villa's underground tunnels, as well as to the garden.

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

Continue to a small, award-winning winery that specializes in Chianti Classico wine. Hear about the winemaking process while sipping and swirling delicious varietals.

Enjoy the last of your afternoon in 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, before heading back to Florence.

This was a wonderful tour through the Chianti region. We so enjoyed learning about olive oil(s), cheeses and wines w/ Martina -- who is a sommelier and an absolute professional. This is a must-do tour if you are interested in 'stress free' wine tasting in Tuscany.

Amazing! My husband and I took this tour yesterday and it was a perfect day in Tuscany. The tour guide Martina was so friendly and knowledgeable, and was born and raised in Florence. She was so fun and personable! We are very covid cautious and we felt very safe, social distancing masks while inside and on the bus and outside as much as possible! The food was AMAZING and some of the best wines you will ever taste. It has been our highlight of our trip so far.

We had a great day on this small group tour through the Tuscan hills. Alex did an awesome job leading our group and his passion was quite evident for both Italian history and of the wine making process. All the wine, olive oil and food were delicious.

Brilliant experience and extremely well organised. Alex was the best guide I’ve ever had, and was a pleasure to soend the day with also - it’s great to have a guide that seems to know everything and more, and enjoy the company of his group! The wineries were amazing, 3 very different places, with amazing wines and food. Excellent value for the experience and the products. I am by no means an expert but feel like I know a lot more after the day - if a little bit fatter now! 10/10 a must do for couples, friends or solo travellers in Tuscany.
