In the Chianti and Castle tour, my intention is to involve you in a special and unique adventure in wine, olive oil, in local food, culture and traditions, but it will also include beautiful scenery, breathtaking landscapes and medieval villages.
In my tours you will not be just passive spectators but will be given all the information and tools needed to appreciate and evaluate a glass of wine, or the quality of olive oil for yourselves; you will see how wine is made from the harvest to the final process.
