Wine Tasting at a Medieval Castle in Chianti
From US$100.00
Overview
Take a break from the bustling streets of Florence and head out into the countryside of Tuscany on a half-day wine tasting tour from Florence. You’ll travel to Chianti and visit a vineyard housed in a 12th century castle. This tour is perfect for those with little or no wine tasting experience; you’ll learn about proper tasting technique, sample an array of wines, and enjoy a delicious Tuscan lunch.
What to Expect
You’ll meet your guide in central Florence and then take off for the Tuscan countryside in a comfortable, air-conditioned van for a day of wine tasting fun.

After enjoying a relaxing ride through the green hills of Tuscany, you’ll arrive at the family-owned castle for a tour of the vineyards. Your guide will teach you about the history of winemaking traditions in Tuscany and you'll learn about the different types of grapes used to make wine in this region of Italy and sample grapes straight off the vine.  

From here you’ll enjoy a guided tour of the castle including a chance to view the vast collections in the family’s wine cellar. Finally, you’ll enjoy a Sommelier guided tasting of the wines made on-site at the castle and a Tuscan-style lunch.

Your half-day wine tasting tour of Tuscany will conclude with a drop-off in central Florence.

Awesome, worth it

We only had one day in Florence, but doing this excursion was totally worth the time and money, even though it left us with not much time for the actual city of Florence. I think this was one of my wife's favorite memories of the...More

Fantastic day in Tuscany!

This was by far the highlight of our Italy trip! My husband and I met the owner at Tuscany Cycle (Dejan) at their office in Florence, and he drove us to Castello di Trebbio winery where we got a private wine making tour with the...More

Fantastic!

Words can't describe this day! Diego was our host and gave us a very knowledgable drive up to the castle. The group was just my husband and I and our 2 children (17 and 12), so that was a real personal touch! The tour through...More
