Chianti Vineyard Tour & Wine Tasting
Sip, swirl and enjoy a splendid lunch at our prized vineyard in the high hills of Chianti, hosted by sommelier Signora Sophia. One of the most stunning views in all of Chianti can be seen from the quaint village’s little piazza onto the charming city of Greve. Set in an ancient rural settlement, the property is situated on the top of a hill, with the typical Tuscan homes peppering the hamlet around the Romanesque church of San Donato.
During your wine tour, you will learn how Chianti Classico began. Discover the unique characteristics of the land in Chianti and the organic vine-growing practices demonstrated directly in the vineyard. We start the tour with a welcoming glass of sparkling wine and a breathtaking view over the vineyards.
The tour includes a walk through the vineyard that leads us to the winery, where your day continues. You will visit both the historic and experimental vineyards, the vinification cellar, another historic cellar and the vinsantaia, where the iconic Vin Santo is slowly fermented in barrels. After the tour, everyone enjoys a wine tasting lunch, including 4 Tuscan wines accompanied by traditional Tuscan lunch.
