About Maremma

The Maremma is a mysterious territory located in between the southern part of Tuscany and Lazio and is one of the prettiest and so far wildest place of central Italy and in the last years producing wonderful and unique wines as well.

This wild yet fascinating land, was formed 400.ooo years ago following an impressive volcanic eruption that has determined its geo-morphological appearance that still exists today. The mass of magma solidified, giving rise to a series of tuffaceous
plateaus, but the brittleness of the rock allowed rivers and streams to deeply erode it, to create an alternation of rocky plateaus that suddenly lose themselves in deep and narrow gorges.

After the era of volcanic activity Etruscans began to colonize this land 3000 years ago and found in it an ideal environment. The seemingly unattainable tuffaceous plateaus, guaranteed them a natural strategic defense, while the valleys, rich in water, lush forest, wild animals and fertile land, were a an excellent source of supplies.

The historical and archaeological beauty in fact is only one component of this territory, characterized by excellent production of wine and olive oil.

Lapilli ash and basalt form the terroir of these areas and thanks to the strong minerality of the soil you will taste unique, particular and complex wines that you will not find in any other part of Tuscany.

Tour description

First day

After a journey of almost 3 hours, we will arrive in one of the most beautiful Etruscan villages in Italy where we will stop for our lunch.

We will eat in a trendy and characteristic place, and with a full stomach we will take we will take a walk through the Etruscan village, considered one of the most beautiful village in Italy.

Soon after we will be ready for our first great winery of the day.

A winery with an important archaeological area next to the vineyard, an Etruscan necropolis and domus first then a roman Villa and a medieval farm later. You will be welcomed by the owners who will tell you everything about their special volcanic wines.

Here you will taste their wines that include, a beautiful white wine made with Vermentino and Viognier, a red wine made with Sangiovese and Alicante, and their top wine, a wine aged in cocciopesto amfora , first winery in Italy to do so.

Wine’s taste

The Romans used cocciopesto a mixture of clay and cement, sand, water, for the floors, and to the wine it gives an optimal micro oxygenation, making the wine particularly clean and harmonious.

It also has the characteristic of offering a high resistance, a remarkable thermal inertia and guarantees the wine an optimal evolution thanks to its ovoid shape. enriching and amplifying the aroma of wine.

Once we finish tasting our wines we can have a look at the archaeological excavations where we will find archaeologists at work.

Then we leave the winery to head to our hotel near another famous and beautiful Etruscan village, here we relax with a good glass of maremma wine in the hall of the hotel or stroll around the town before dinner.

Second day

After a short walk in the paths that the Etruscans have carved into the volcanic rock we will go to discover a very particular winery, their wines ages in a
singular wine cellar dug by the Etruscans, in the tuff at 15 meters deep below the ground.

After lunch we head to another beautiful fortified medieval village before reaching our wine resort, where you can relax in the pool, drink a glass of their great wine, before having a delicious handmade meal paired with wonderful wines.

Third day

We head towards the coast, towards Bolgheri, the queen of the Tuscan coast, famous for its super tuscans, the homeland of the cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc, but before reaching Bolgheri we visit a great winery close to the maremma coast.

Once we get to Bolgheri, we will visit one renowned winery among the best and popular wineries of that area: Sassicaia, Ornellaia, Grattamacco, Le Macchiole, Fornacelle, Sapaio.
Then we head towards our hotel to admire the view while we wait to dine immersed in the vineyards

4) Fourth day:

On our way home we will visit another area that is becoming very popular near Pisa, where the Cabernet Franc is the king of the grapes.
We will do our last wine tasting and then we will move to Florence where we will arrive late in the afternoon.

We had a GREAT experience. Francesca was incredibly knowledgeable and so helpful with questions. The 3 wineries on the Chianti tour were fantastic. Despite similar types of wine each felt like a unique experience. The wineries were small and family run. Highly recommend!

We absolutely LOVED our tour. Filippo brought energy and passion from the start. He provided history and personal anecdotes that made our trip an experience we won’t ever forget. The wines were great but sitting down and eating with locals at one of the boutique wineries was definitely a highlight for us as we made our journey through Italy. There’s nothing better than hearing first handed experience and Filippo did just that. Would recommend this to anyone even semi-interested in wine and history. Also - Filippo is a great driver 😁

AMAZING! My husband and I, along with two of our friends recently visited Italy and fell in love with the country! During our stay in Florence we booked a trip with Angela to explore Tuscany. The wineries she hand selected for our group were phenomenal - all were small production wineries that took the time to teach us about their wine production process, the correct way to smell/taste wine, and much more. I highly recommend booking with Angie if you plan to explore Tuscany during your trip to Italy. It was definitely one of the highlights of our vacation! Thank you Angie!!!

This was the highlight of our trip to Italy! We went in the off-season (end of November) and it was still beautiful and perfect. Our highly qualified guide, Filippo, was the best! So knowledgeable of the wines, wineries, and history of the region due to being a local to a nearby village in this Chianti region (also gave plenty of other suggestions in Florence). We already rethink our wine shopping now that we have the knowledge of what to look for to have a wonderful and headache free wine (all the wineries were organic so less sulfites, yay!). Each of the wineries offers cheese with bread and unbelievably fresh olive oil (November is the time for fresh press harvest) and the 2nd winery (Lombricaia di Montalbino) was where we had a delicious lunch with the most bubbly and passionate guide for the winery, Chiara. It was an authentic tuscan meal with a beautiful view of the countryside in a very charming restaurant that felt like we were having a family dinner. The day flew by and it was the best part of our trip due to it feeling so intimate and relaxed. Highly recommend this, well worth the price!

We had a beautiful experience with Tuscan Wine Tours! Angela was very organized and communicative confirming all details ahead of time. Our guide Filippo was just fantastic; very friendly and knowledgeable sharing all kinds of information about the region, the agriculture, food, the wineries and of course...wine! The wineries and countryside were really gorgeous, and the it's obvious how deeply ingrained the love of their craft is. Highly highly recommend Filippo and this company...it's a must if in Florence to get out into the countryside and see how the agriculture, the architecture and the people come together to produce such an exquisite wine. Bellissimo!

What an amazing tour with Claudia! Passionate, knowledgeable, and so much fun learning about Chianti, DOCG, DOC, IGT, and super Tuscany wines. We did a private tour on Sunday. Claudia was right on time at the meeting point, and really went above and beyond by sharing recipes with us, helping us get transportation for all the wines we purchased, and helping get us a taxi the next day. Highly recommend!

We took a wine tour with Andrea and had a blast! Not only were the wineries we visited all unique but Andrea spent time to explain how taste wine and what to look for in color, taste, etc. All three wineries served Chianti but each one had unique other offerings. They explained the process of winemaking and showed us cellars and the property. The perfect day trip from Florence. Such a fun group and the best tour guide!

This tour was everything we could have hoped for and more. The whole experience was a nice pace, a very relaxing day with great people. Filippo was an amazing guide- extremely knowledgeable and super fun to spend the day with. The wineries we went to were absolutely beautiful, the wine was incredible, and we had vegan accommodations for lunch, which was so appreciated! Our lunch was also fantastic- we ate and drank great yesterday! We very highly recommend this tour if you enjoy wine and want a more relaxed vibe of a day with great wine and great company.

This tour was the highlight of our trip. Filippo was fantastic with his knowledge of the area, wines and suggestions. The three wineries were wonderful boutique and all different. We received private tastings and a tour of all the cellars. The lunch provided was an authentic taste of Italy at a wonderful young winery. We would highly recommend this for anyone and if we are ever back would use this tour program again!! Thank you for such a memorable experience!

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.
