Your Chianti wine tour begins in the early afternoon. We'll depart Florence via private transport and head straight to the historic town of Greve in Chianti. As you explore the town, you'll learn about its rich history and hear the stories of famous explorers and artists who once walked these very streets.

Visit a traditional butcher shop from the 1800s that’s still owned by the same family. Then, you’ll go next door to a wine cellar where you’ll enjoy an exclusive private tour tour of the Museum of Wine with your guide. This collection of artifacts will you insight into the long history of winemaking in the Chianti region.

The wines are paired perfectly with schiacciata and cold cuts, and you’ll uncover the secrets of Chianti's master salumieri and discover why charcuterie plays an integral role in the region's culture.

The next stop on your Chianti wine tour is a family-run Chianti winery focused on the small production of organic wines.

the tour guide, Lorenzo, was amazing. He really did a great job of keeping the tour interesting during the travel time periods between stops. My one recommendation - give each tour customer a full glass of wine to drink at the end of each tasting event.

We really enjoyed our tour to the Chianti wine region. Our tour guide Lorenzo was exceptional. He was kind, funny, very knowledgeable and really made the trip enjoyable. The Castlevecchio was the highlight of the tour. The wine is exceptional and the winery is beautiful. We would highly recommend this tour. Mark and Libertee Thompson. Kansas
