Sip & Swirl Along The Chianti Wine Roads ~ A Day As A Winemaker

Chianti Vineyard Tour & Wine Tasting

This full-day visit will begin with an early morning departure to 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.

A short stroll through the vineyards 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 vinsanto is slowly fermented in barrels.  After the tour, everyone enjoys a wine tasting, including 4 Tuscan wines accompanied by traditional Tuscan finger foods.  This 90-minute tour offers an in-depth look at the winemaking process in Chianti.

Chianti ~ Privately Owned Winemaker’s Cellar & Tuscan Four-Course Lunch or Dinner

Next, you will visit our prized wine cellar and enjoy a tasting of the property’s wines.  Visit the historic cave dating back to the 16th century in Greve, on a tour led by Signor Paolo.  He, along with his daughter Ilaria – both sommeliers – will teach you about their wine process while serving 4 tastings of wines delightfully paired with Tuscan finger foods.

You will sip and swirl Prosecco to Sangiovese and Chianti wines made in limited vintages, followed by a four-course Tuscan lunch or dinner at the property’s restaurant, including antipasto, fresh pasta, a main course and dessert (respecting food allergies).  Wine of your choice is available at a surcharge.
