Full days wine tasting tours: High Quality Chianti wine tour

Best seller wine tour

This full day wine tour is perfect for wine lovers as well as first time visitors

It is the best combination in terms of driving time from either Florence and Siena, it will not take that long to be driving along scenic routes surrounded by vineyards and olive grooves.

It is a Tuscan wine region where wine lovers can visit beautiful wineries, high quality Chianti wines and sample the famous blends of Tuscany known as Supertuscan wines.

It is an educational wine tour with an expert wine guide and the local hosts to discover how Chianti wine production grew and developed over the last 20 years going from a lower quality perception to a high quality product more often produced with 100% Sangiovese grape, a unique clone Tuscany is famous since centuries.

Clearly red wines are predominant in Chianti by the way some wineries make white wines or rosé within the traditional Tuscan style: dry, acid, fresh and fruity but not sweet!

Also sweet wine, “Vinsanto” is a possible tasting where available during the Chianti wine tour.

For first time visitors this is a perfect day in the Tuscan countryside to enjoy the stunning views, sightseeing and postcard perfect spots you’ll be able to enjoy as your local driver guide knows the best panoramic stops ( and she’s also somehow “obsessed” by landscape pictures!).

You can visit fewer wineries and add stops in medieval towns, small off the beaten path villages where you’ll have time to explore, do shopping, have a gelato...


These full days wine tours are not standardized days so besides some samples you can find here, you are free to plan a custom day tour in within 8 hours and as a wine guide and professional driver, I will be happy to suggest you how to use your time at its best.

Each wine tasting tour is not just drinking but it is an authentic experience to visit boutique wineries, to learn about Tuscan wines and winemaking, to be introduced to an informative educational wine tasting with your personal wine guide, to experience food and wine pairing, and to go back home with an overall cultural insight about Tuscany.
