Full Description

Enjoy an unforgettable wine experience in the Chianti Classico countryside. You will depart from Florence, and during the 45 minutes trip your driver/guide will give you an introduction about Tuscany and our wine culture.
As soon as arrived in the countryside, you'll immerse yourself in the picturesque Tuscan landscape, with the breathtaking views of one of the most famous areas of the Tuscan wine region.
Visit to the first winery with wine tasting
At the first winery, a wine expert will be waiting for you and the experience will start with an overview of the farm followed by explanations about the millenary tradition of wine making; all of your curiosity about the wine and the olive oil will be satisfied during the tour and the tasting of different wines and fresh olive oil.
Visit to the second winery with wine tasting and snacks
After a very short ride you'll reach the second estate; here, to maximize your time, the visit will be focused on the differences between the two places, so the second stop will give you the opportunity to compare them, and after the visit, to conclude your wine experience you will taste other wines and olive oil, paired with local Tuscan specialties such as cheese, salami, cold cuts and bruschetta.
Your half day small group wine tour from Florence will ends with your return back to the departure point.

IMPORTANT:
We cannot hold the tour for late arrivals, it would be disrespectful to other guests. Please check the meeting point directions, the day prior the tour, at the latest and if you need further info, ask us in advance, and not at the last minute, as it could be too late to join the tour. If you show up late or cannot find the meeting point, for any reason, refunds will not be issued. It is not possible to join the group after it has started. Arrive at the right check-in time, or a few minutes earlier, is the best way to enjoy the experience from the beginning, maintaining the good mood of the group.

The meeting point is at Piazzale Montelungo (Montelungo Square), at the bottom of the highest red-brick building, opposite to the parking lot.
