Between the Flavors, the History & the Scenery
wine tasting actually offers something for everyone
All joking aside, exploring the wine region of Tuscany - in particular that of Chianti - is an adventure for everyone! Visiting the rolling hills, vineyards, olive groves and farms between Florence, Siena and Arezzo can be exciting and illuminating. Even if you never taste a drop of wine.
This marvelous scenery is what postcards are made of, and you shouldn’t miss the opportunity to wander the back roads and visit small towns like San Donato, San Gusmè, and Castelnuovo Berardenga. Winding between the low lying foothills, patchwork fields of grain and sunflowers, and the meticulously cared for rows of grapes and olive groves you will find endless places to stop and take photos. And. You will find numerous small and large vineyards where you can stop and tour the “cantina” or wine cellars and taste their production.

Learn what makes each vintage different and delicous. And learn why Chianti wine is famous worldwide.
