Taste the beautiful red and white wines of Tuscany on a full-day tour of Chianti and San Gimignano from Florence. Discover the wines of Vernaccia di San Gimignano, and feast on a local lunch in a rustic setting.
What to Expect
Enjoy a full-day tour of Tuscany’s wine regions from Florence, and explore the heart of the romantic Tuscan countryside. Go to the town of San Gimignano and the wine territory of Chianti to visit 2 distinct wineries.
With one winery dedicated to red Chianti, and one to the venerated white Vernaccia of San Gimignano, this trip provides the best of both worlds. Your day starts with a drive through gently rolling hills to the Chianti area, where you will stop at a small family owned vineyard.
The winegrower will show and explain everything you desire about the winemaking process. And after a visit to the cellar, begin your tasting experience with tips and techniques from your guide on how to best taste the wine.
Located near the quaint town of San Gimignano, the 2nd vineyard provides an opportunity to experience one of the most celebrated white wines in Italy; Vernaccia di San Gimignano. After the tasting, take a quick foray into San Gimignano town center to marvel at the medieval architecture. Shop at the local stores, and sample some of Italy’s famous gelato.
