Chianti Classico Region 

The region is located in a beautiful strip of land between Florence and Siena so it is a day tour available from both Florence and Siena.

The routes we will take are scenic, you will be surrounded by vineyards and olive trees along with hilltop towns such as San Donato, Barberino Valdelsa, Castellina in Chianti and Radda in Chianti just to mention a few.

Every now and then, expect to see a castle, an old tower perched in the mountains and used in the past to control the territory when the city of Florence and Siena where enemies!

About the wines do not expect to sample average "Chianti" in the basket bottle, but you will visit boutique wineries, historical castles or villas, family owned wineries we are happy to support with our tours.

Each winery is selected by the third level sommelier Anna and at each location you will meet the owners and a passionate staff aiming to give you a personal experience.

In this tuscan wine region red wines are predominant since Sangiovese is the typical tuscan grape used to produce Chianti and Chianti Classico wines, but back in the '80 some local producers introduced international grape varieties such as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc which have been used to produce the international blends called Supertuscans and you will be able to taste them as well.
