Day 2: You will be met in the morning by a private chauffeured vehicle, which will accompany you throughout your day of discovery of the renowned Chianti vineyards.
Your first stop will be in the medieval walled town of San Gimignano; set on a hill overlooking the Val d’Elsa Valley, this UNESCO World Heritage site is well worth a visit. You’ll have around an hours’ free time to explore the town independently, taking in the Medieval architecture around the Piazza della Cisterna, and perhaps stopping for a morning coffee break in one of the many squares, as you watch the world go by!
After some sightseeing, you will certainly be ready for some wine, and you will be taken to visit a Chianti producer, where you will be welcomed for a full tour of the winery, discovering the winemaking process from press to bottle.
Following the tour, you will delight in a traditional lunch, accompanied by a selection of the estate’s wines. Here, you will taste examples of dishes that have made Tuscany such a well-loved gastronomic capital.
After such an enjoyable morning, you will then be taken to a second Chianti estate, where the passionate and knowledgeable staff will offer a tour of the winery, and of course this will be followed with a comprehensive wine tasting of the estates wines. You will be taken back to Siena at the end of the day.
 
Day 3: Your driver will return to accompany you on a second full day tour, this time focusing on Montepulciano, where Rosso and Nobile di Montepulciano are produced.
During the course of the morning you will be taken to visit two estates in the area, and at each you will enjoy a full tour learning about the specifics of Montepulciano wine production, tasting a selection of wines at each estate, before being taken back to Siena.
The afternoon will then be free to explore Siena independently; the Cathedral is absolutely astonishing and the Palazzo Pubblico as well as the Torre del Mangia on the main square, Piazza del Campo, are must-sees.
In the evening, a three course dinner paired with wines will be served in an authentic Tuscan restaurant of the city centre.
 
Day 4: After a leisurely breakfast, check out of the hotel.
 
Please note: If you wish, you can only stay for a 3-day break, which does not include Day 3 in the itinerary. Please get in touch here.
