Florence wine tours: discovering the best boutique wineries
We operate a daily wine tour departing from Florence city centre. Our Florence wine tours run from 9am to 5:30pm with 3 or 4 stops, depending on the tour you choose. At the pick-up / drop-off place you will meet other participants as well as our guide who will take you for a day touring of boutique wineries. We make sure groups are small so your experience is unique and you are very well looked after and taken care of. You will travel in a luxury minibus with air-conditioning and free Wi-Fi on board through a landscape of historic vineyards, rolling hills and beautiful Tuscan villages. Our guides are wine professional sommeliers and passionate about the Chianti wines. They love teaching guests about wine appreciation. They are extremely knowledgeable and will be available to answer questions, provide hints and other support throughout the way to the wineries. They will be full of stories and advice.
At the wineries you are sure to try a great selection of local wines while sampling food, cold meats and other delicious treats paired with each glass of wine.
