Details

Meeting at your hotel in Florence or Siena at around 9/9:30 in the morning.
 
We start a scenic drive along the chianti road SR. 222 to stop at a small off the beaten path village we chose for you and we'll talk about some historical facts of the area, some curiosities about the folk culture along with olive oil and wine making traditions typical of the tuscan farming life in the countryside.
 
You will have plenty of time to take pictures along the way and then once we will reach the first selected winery, a very top-end, we will be welcomed by the owners and winemakers and we will visit together the cellars, after we will go back to the tasting room to sample Chianti Classico, Chianti Classico Riserva, a Supertuscan wine, Vinsanto and/or grappa, extra virgin olive oil.
 
When lunch time arrives we will go to a small village in the Chianti area and we will have a lunch based on typical tuscan products but being on your own you can choose anything from the menu and we will be happy to help you in the selection and you will pay for what you eat, making this cost easy and clear to you.
 
After lunch it will be time to go to the next winery which will be chosen between a castle, villa or a small family business, anyway the two wineries we will visit are amazingly good and very different so to sample wines with different characteristics.
At the second winery we will have the cellar visit followed by a rich wine tasting with other 4 wines.
 
At around 4:30/ 5 pm we will be ready to happily drive back home.
