Wine Tastings in Chianti

Between the Flavors, History & Scenery

Wine tasting actually offers something for everyone

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. You will also find numerous small and large wineries where you can stop and tour their "cantina", the wine cellar, and taste their production.

A visit to a winery here offers you the chance to learn the history behind the production of each bottle of wine, from the time of the pruning to the vendemmia or harvest, through to the fermentation and aging. Learn what makes each vintage different and special. Learn what makes Chianti wine famous worldwide.

The Chianti region is open all year and each season will offer you unforgettable memories as you tour historic wine cellars, acres upon acres of vineyards and end your personalized tour with a wine taste testing. Buy and ship home wines that will delight friends and family at home while on site in Chianti (here's some tips for shipping wine back home).

The possibilities will seem overwhelming once you get here, our guide should help you arrive prepared, whether you want to follow a do-it-yourself tour with the names of some of our favorite producers or join a local tour.

Caution: Be safe. Don't Drink &  Drive. You might want to consider a trip through Chianti with an organized tour where the guide organizes not only the transport and the tastings, but introduces you to an authentic Chianti lunch or dinner menu with quality pasta, cheeses and cold cuts. Your other option is to tour Chianti and its olive groves and vineyards by foot, bike or even public transport or with your own private driver.
