This was a brilliant tour. We all started off very quiet in the van as it was at the beginning of the coronavirus crisis and everyone was keeping to themselves, but after the first winery, let alone the second, we were anything but quiet! Brilliant driver too, his name escapes me, but he was very knowledgeable about the region and it’s history.

Both winery's were gorgeous, the wines, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar were out of this world. We got lucky at the 1st one and got to see them pressing the last olive harvest of the year and the smell was heavenly! Daniele was very informative and knowledgeable! He even gave us a great recommendation for restaurant for dinner that night and we enjoyed every bite! We would definitely recommend this tour to anyone and hope to go back again when the vines are full and the sun is out longer!

Easy to book and not hard to find the tour guides for the trip. Our guide Daniele gave great history on the way out of Florence to the wineries, as well as a good primer on wines of the region. We also got to taste olive oil made at the wineries and there were lots of breads and finger foods. I was also worried that the tour would be stuffy and pretentious but the group was very kind with a good mix of ages and the winery staff was educational and pleasant. The wineries were beautiful, the snacks fantastic and every wine and olive oil was amazing! 10/10 would 100% book this again.
