Chianti Rufina Wine Tour
Tuscany is one of the most famous wine region of Italy, as a matter of fact in Tuscany there are many wine areas such as: Chianti, Brunello, Nobile di Montepulciano, Bolgheri, Chianti Classico and so on.
The Chianti area is very large, so it has been divided into other wine sub-zones, where we can find Chianti Colli Fiorentini, Chianti Colli senesi, Chianti Colli Pisani, Chianti Classico, Chianti Colli Lucchesi, Chianti Colli Aretini and finally Chianti Rufina.
Chianti Rufina is one of the smallest wine areas with its only 30.000 acres of land and it is located just north of Florence; the landscape is more hilly being close to the Apennines mountains.
Chianti Rufina is a Docg wine, so that the wineries have to respect all the strict rules to make it.
The Chianti Rufina area is still is not very touristy more authentic and very charming.

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!
We had an excellent wine and castle tour day. Federico was an exceptional guide and we had a wonderful time touring and tasting wine and olive oil. We would like to also mention the fantastic lunch we had it was memorable. We would highly recommend this tour.
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.
