Tour description

Organic Chianti Tuscan Wine Tour

Tuscany is one of the greenest regions of Italy: there is a great biodiversity of vegetation and animals of all sizes. As well as a perfect microclimate, a right hilly altitude, perfect excursion of the temperature during the day in the Summer seasons, then hot in the Summer and cold in the  Winter. All that means that in Tuscany there is perfect and balanced eco system.

All this makes the perfect place for the magnificent Tuscan wines and extra virgin olive oil made here.

The terroir, the soil is so important that Tuscany is divided into DOCG wine areas, or subzones, what does it mean? That all the wineries that want to produce Chianti wine or Brunello wine have to be inside their specific wine regions, Chianti or Montalcino. In like manner San Gimignano for the Vernaccia wine, Montepulciano for the Nobile di Montepulciano.

Indeed, specific wine areas have special features that belong specifically to that wine region. When you drink a wine that comes from one of those areas you find that they have their own identity, personality, that is always recognizable.

The terroir means precisely this, that a wine can be recognized and identified thanks to the area where it was produced.

Organic Chianti Tuscan Wine: rules that safeguard the quality and identity of the area.

When we talk about organic wines or natural, biodynamic or even vegan wines in Tuscany, we talk about different aspects.

The organic wineries that want to produce organic wines have to follow the DOCG rules and furthermore stricter rules for getting the organic certification.

Some of these rules mean a lesser use of sulfites than in conventional wine, from which fewer headaches, stomach ache, hangover, no chemicals in the soil and in the vines, trying to respect as much as possible the relationship among land, vineyard, climate.

Before the grape harvest the wineries try to fortify the vines with natural substances such as fava beans plants between the vines rows, or other plants rich in potassium and nitrogen.

The harvest is done by hand to not stress the vines and to select the best bunches of grapes. Additionally, in the cellar they are prohibited to use aromatic additives, sugars, and any chemicals.

The result will be a healthy grapes that will produce a healthy, natural wine, rich, balanced and unique.

In Tuscany organic wine therefore means respect for nature, for the place where we live, for people who live in the wine-producing areas, for plants, animals.

Organic Tuscan Wine doesn’t only mean respect for the environment and the eco system, but also the production of quality wines with more aroma and flavor.

Healthy vines means also healthier wines, with more antioxidants and anti-radicals and polyphenols.

These days more and more wineries in Tuscany are transformed into organic, biodynamic, natural, vegan, wineries for ethical and environmentally sustainable choice. Anyway, there are also wineries that have always been organic for centuries, thanks to ancient techniques of cultivation handed down from father to son, who have rejected the use of pesticides and other chemicals when in the 50’s they were introduced by pharmaceutical companies.

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.
