THE ULTIMATE TASTING EXPERIENCE. FULL DAY ADVENTURE FOR WINE AND FOOD LOVERS BY AN OFF-ROAD 4WD VEHICLE.
A unique day trip from Florence, we will eat and drink our way through Chianti, renowned not only for its wonderful red wines, fresh local produce and traditional cuisine, but also for some of the BEST LANDSCAPES IN THE COUNTRY. We will enjoy wine tasting and wonderful food stops along the way. This tour is a must for wine connoisseurs and novices alike and make sure to bring a good appetite with you!
With your expert guide, enjoy a comprehensive introduction to the region and its wines while touring two of the region's best wine estates. As you sample the winery’s signature wines, you’ll receive tips about the art of wine tasting and pairing wine with food.
Our first stop of the day is at a MEDIEVAL CASTLE, home to the same wine making family for 900 years. Hear the story of the meticulously cultivated vines and learn about the importance of attention to detail throughout the wine making process. WE TASTE THREE WINES AND TWO OLIVE OILS but first, there's a fascinating guided tour of the wine cellars and olive oil press and the chance to take amazing photos of the breathtaking views from the top of the castle tower.
Leaving the castle you will be taken across stunning Chianti countryside to a specialist CHEESE PRODUCER and you will taste some delicious locally produced cheese as you hear an explanation of the cheese making process.
Now buckle-up and get ready for some off-roading through ancient woodland and rolling hills, outlined with cypress trees and dotted with rustic farms and churches, to make our way to a TYPICAL TUSCAN RESTAURANT with stunning views. Here is where we will really get your taste buds tingling with delicious food and wine. You will not want to leave!
Next we will stop in GREVE, a picturesque town in Chianti where you can enjoy a little free time to wind down and get a coffee, shop or just soak in the unique Italian culture of this idyllic place. Here you will also enjoy a tasting of typical SALUMI (cured meats) at one of Italy's most famous butchers!
Finally we go deeper into the Chianti hills and enjoy more incredible countryside on our way to a Chianti Classico vineyard. As a contrast to the established winery of the morning, this one is smaller and less known though does have TWO AWARDS WINNING WINES which you will taste as you find out how ancient tradition and innovation have been combined to create them. As the last stop you will relax and enjoy the special light at this time of day, adding to the unforgettable memories you will have created so far. A sweet treat at the end will be the perfect way to end the perfect day!
