Overview
Treat your taste buds on a full-day Chianti wine and food tour from Florence and sample some of Tuscany’s finest wine, cheese, meat, chocolate and more! With a local guide who is passionate about the region’s food heritage, travel through the countryside by 4x4 off-road vehicle and tour an historic villa, and a Chianti Classico winery. Up to seven glasses of wine are included throughout the day, plus several food samples and a 3-course meal at a traditional restaurant in the Chianti hills.
Highlights
  • Traveling via 4x4 vehicle lets you visit the hard-to-reach Tuscan countryside
  • Hear in-depth commentary on Tuscan cuisine and wine from your guide
  • Includes several stops at wineries, olive-oil mills, and a butcher
  • Tastings at each winery included
  • 3-course Tuscan lunch at a handpicked restaurant

What to Expect
Meet your air-conditioned, 4x4 minibus in central Florence. As you ride, enjoy watching the city landscape melt into rolling hills of vineyards and olive groves while your guide takes care of the navigation. Stop at a winery owned by a prominent Italian family to taste a selection of carefully curated wine, cheese, and olive oil. You’ll also get a guided tour of the cellars to learn how wine and olive oil are made. At a nearby Tuscan restaurant, dig into a 3-course meal, including regional specialties paired with two glasses of Chianti. Move on to Greve in Chianti to pick up salumi from a butcher, which you’ll enjoy as a snack at your next stop, an award-winning winery. There, you’ll learn about and taste Chianti Classico. Relax on your ride back to Florence, knowing your designated driver will transport you safely.
