This wine tasting tour from Florence is suitable for those who want to combine wine and food. We will be visiting 2 small boutique wineries, a scrumptious lunch at one of my best favorite local restaurant.
After picking you up in Florence, we will start our great wine trip to the Tuscany countryside, we will talk about italian and tuscan wines, Chianti and Chianti Classico wine, what a Super Tuscan wine is, why Tuscany is delimitated into wine zones , terroir, soil, grape variety and much more.
You know that the terroir in Tuscany is so unique thanks to very special condition such as the soil, the microclimate, the altitude of the Chianti hills, the historical wine traditions; Tuscany wines are so unique that far back in 1716, the Grand Duke Cosimo III dei Medici, for the first time in history, decided to define some particularly suitable wine areas for the production of this high quality wine: one of this area is the Chianti region.
At the first organic winery, you will meet the owner, who will be happy to tour you among the vineyards, the aging cellar and eventually tasting their wines including a white wine in addition to their red wines : Chianti regular, Chianti Riserva and a Super Tuscan wine paired with local food. Extra Virgin Olive is never missing in our wine tours as well.
A scrumptious lunch at a local restaurant where we will stop for at least one hour enjoying organic, fresh, local and seasonal food accompanied by local chianti wine.
After that it is time for going to the second winery, here again you will be welcomed by the owner who starting with the wine making process will lead you to the wine tasting in a patio outside.
We will stop at some scenic viewing points, chosen for the best light and beauty
