Get to know the heart and soul of Tuscany guided by an expert sommelier and discover all about Chianti. Explore its country roads and vineyards, visit two wineries and an olive oil mill, and enjoy lunch a typical Tuscan lunch.
Renowned worldwide for its precious ruby-red blends, Chianti Classico is unique: a sea of softly rolling hills dotted by swaying cypresses, olive groves and golden farmhouses and a myriad of extensive vineyards. This is the land of the black rooster - il Gallo Nero - which you can see defiantly looking out of all the signs along the countryside roads and labels.
Travel from Florence to the Chianti area where you will visit an olive oil mill boasting ancient architectural features and modern technology, and producing delicious gourmet olive oil. Enjoy learning about the centuries-old olive oil tradition, the harvesting and pressing process, and finally savour its unique and full flavour.
After the olive oil experience, led by your sommelier, you will visit two very different wineries where you will enjoy wine tastings. Experience the thrill of exploring the cellars lined with precious blends (both wineries are internationally renowned and acclaimed), learning about wine production in general and about the two different approaches and techniques.
At the end of the tour, indulge in a typical Tuscan lunch.
