Chianti Classico and Super Tuscans full-day, shared wine tour

Chianti Classico & Super Tuscan wine tour details and itinerary

This tour is for visitors to Tuscany who would like to have fun with other people who have a special interest in common: to learn about and enjoy Tuscan Chianti wines. During this full day trip to the Chianti countryside, you will have the chance to savour carefully selected examples of Chianti's wine production in the company of other enthusiastic wine lovers. You will discover authentic Tuscany by tasting high quality wines ranging from the traditional Chiantis to the more exotic Supertuscan reds. And not just wines - you will also sample the best extra virgin olive oil and traditional tuscan food. Last but not least, during the tour we will drive through some of the most scenic landscape in Italy, in areas such as the Colli Fiorentini near Montespertoli and Chianti Classico near San Donato in Poggio, San Casciano, Greve in Chianti, Montefioralle, Castellina and Vertine.
