Chianti and Machiavelli’s Villas tour Tour Program

Wine tour description

The day tour of Machiavelli’s Villa will start in Florence at 9:30 am, where you will meet our expert wine tour guide for escorting you in the Tuscany countryside.

During the 40-minute drive you will not be bored because you will hear stories and explanations of Tuscany and Tuscan wines, while you admire the wonderful Tuscan landscape.

First winery

The first stop will be in a small family run winery where you will meet the owner; you will start listening about their family, history, to continue to visit the cellars, the vineyard and to finish tasting their delicious wines, 2 reds wines and one white wine, or 3 reds wines if the white is sold out.

Second winery 

After this lovely winery, it is time to go to the second winery, a magnificent XV century Villa, built by Machiavelli’s family known as the “Queen of the Chianti villas” and now a National monument. 

The Villa is famous also for the garden, considered one of the most beautiful garden of Italy. First Prize winner of the Best Italian Gardens Awards.

At the Villa we will meet the General Manager or his assistant and you will be guided through the cellars, the vineyards, the historical garden where you will be amazed by the ingenious arrangement of rare plants and flowers, dwarf fruits trees, aromatic herbs, 4 season plants, fountains, and the unmissable view over the Tuscany countryside, covered with olives trees, vineyards and cypress trees.

The actual owner even restored the XVI century original irrigation system one of the best preserved in Tuscany. It was designed with stone basins positioned to favor the flow of water from the highest point to the lowest. 

Not to mention the equally famous rare Mandrake plant, used for aphrodisiac and fecondative properties.


Finally after this beauty immersion it is time to feast on: a delicious home cooked lunch prepared for us at the Villa paired with their high quality wines.

You will taste a white wine made with 90% of Chardonnay, a Chianti Classico and a Chianti Classico Riserva. 

In the Summer we will have lunch outside al fresco, in the courtyard, while in the Fall and in the Winter, lunch will be in the historical kitchen of the Villa.

    Our Client's Words

    You can read here what some of our clients had to say about our tours. Imagine what we could do for you!

    My wife and I took Angie’s Castle & Wine tour in late May. We had a fun, small group with Barbara as our guide. Barbara was very genuine and truly expressed an interest in wanting all of us to enjoy our day, as well as our time in Tuscany Would I recommend the tour? Yes, without a doubt. If you are a red wine drinker, these are smaller producers that you are most likely not able to purchase in the U.S. They make excellent wines, so treat yourself and send some home Our wines arrived in four weeks. Grazie Mille Angie and Barbara for a terrific day!

    An amazing day touring the Tuscany wine region! I would especially like to thank Francesca for making my 50th birthday a memory I will treasure forever! Her knowledge of wines, the countryside, olive oil, etc. was extraordinary! The wineries and the owners (Stephania and Marco) were excellent hosts and provided us with samples of the most amazing wines and olive oils. I would highly recommend your company to anyone visiting the Tuscany region! Again, thanks!!!

    I went on a wine tasting tour with Angie a few years ago and because of the great experience I booked again for May 2013. Angie’s tour was already fully booked so we were in Olivia’s group, another awesome day! The whole region is beautiful and there are plenty of tour operators but for me Angie’s personal service and small groups make her the go-to company for your Tuscan wine tasting tour. A bonus with the smaller groups is that Angie takes you to small and medium sized wineries, not the giant mass production places, so you really get face to face time with the owner/winemakers.
