Chianti Region Wine Tasting Half-Day Trip from Florence



Duration: 5 hours
Introduction:

Combine Chianti wine with blissful Tuscan countryside on a half-day wine tour from Florence! With a tour escort, travel out of Florence and spend the afternoon at an enchanting castle winery in the Chianti Classico or Chianti Fiorentino region with a local wine-expert guide. Tour the wine cellars, hear the secrets of Tuscan winemaking, and then sample prestigious Tuscan wine alongside some traditional Italian snacks.

Leave central Florence by air-conditioned coach, and travel into the lush Tuscan countryside that surrounds the city. An area of unrivaled beauty, Tuscany also holds a reputation as one of Italy's most esteemed winemaking regions and acres of picturesque vineyards blanket its sun-drenched hills.

Revel in the scenery as you travel, passing traditional travertine villages clinging to hilltops, overlooking swathes of vine-clad fields and olive groves. Your route continues into the Chianti Classico or Chianti Fiorentino sub-regions where some of Italy's most prized red wine is produced. Stop in a quiet hamlet and visit a renowned wine estate at a castle for your tour and tasting session.

After a friendly Tuscan welcome at the venue, start your visit with a tour of the castle's historical wine cellars. See where the grapes are crushed, and where the wine is matured and later bottled while hearing some secrets of Tuscan winemaking.

Then, take a seat at a wine glass-laden table, and sip on different glasses of wine made by the estate. The varietals are subject to change, but typically a glass of Chianti Classico, Chianti Reserve, the eponymous Tuscan vinsanto (dessert wine) or a prestigious white wine are served. Savor the complex and fruity flavors that are prevalent in Tuscan wine, and hear tasting tips to help you understand the characteristics of different grapes that are used.

As you sip, savor some traditional Italian snacks such as mixed crostini with pecorino cheese and cantucci di prato (aniseed-flavored almond cookies). Fruit juice is served for children and any non-drinkers. After your tasting session finishes, return to your coach with your tour escort and relax on the journey back to Florence. Your tour then finishes with a drop-off at the start point.
