Full description

Explore the Chianti region and its famous wine on this day tour from Siena. Join your local tour guide on a scenic drive through the Chianti landscape and get an up-close look at the picturesque vineyards. Learn about the history of these lands contested between the Republics of Siena and Florence and marvel at the castles and fortifications.

After departing Siena, take in the olive groves and vineyards in the clearings of the forest, the farmhouses dotting the landscape, and visit a couple of hilltop towns to walk the cobblestone streets and browse the shops of local crafts and products. Visit a Chianti winery to learn about the local Chianti wine and how Baron Bettino Ricasoli invented the formula behind this world-renowned wine, known for its distinctive taste and easy drinkability. Tour the cellars and taste the wine with its producer to hear the passion behind the process from vine to bottle. Sit down for a traditional Tuscan lunch with wine. In the afternoon, visit another wine estate to meet the local producer, tour the old cellars and learn about the traditions of the Chianti folk while savoring great Chianti Classico and other local red wines.

This trip was amazing!! Danielle was an amazing guide and so knowledgeable about wine, especially the Chianti region. This trip is not touristy and it really gives you an authentic experience. You visit a castle and get a glass of wine there, then you visit a small local winery where you get multiple tastings and a large lunch. Then you visit an old villa for more wine tastings and snacks. We ended up having a ton of wine and food. Definitely worth the cost!
