Wine Tour Tuscany: White and red wines at the castles and villas

An ancient Tuscany time tour, back to towers and castles and forts of Tuscany, to taste superlative wines made with unusual grape varieties.

Unusual wine tour for the 3 reasons:

  1. we are on the highest part of Chianti region, cooler and less touristy, although amazing postcard views all day long
  2. for the not common white grapes such as Semillion, Sauvignon blanc, Sauvignon Gris, Chardonney, Riesling
  3. for the wineries: an authentic castle, a stunning XVII Villa, a X century small winery and what matters most, they all produce superb wines, red & white.

First Winery

We will pick you up at the central meeting point and after 30 minutes drive along the Arno river valley, we arrive at the first winery, 30 hectares large, only 12 cultivated with vineyards, where you will meet the owner.

Agronomist and oenologist, dedicates all time to take care of the vineyards, producing excellent white wines from french grape varieties, but also the traditional tuscan red wines made with Sangiovese, Canaiolo and Merlot grapes.
He even makes a sweet wine with the noble molds (Botritys) on the model of the french wine Sauternes.

This winery distinguishes itself in the production of particular white wines from Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Sauvignon Gris grapes supplemented by Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay and Riesling, but it also does not forget the Tuscan tradition of red wines cultivating Sangiovese, Canaiolo and Merlot for the production of Chianti Colli wine. Fiorentini DOCG and IGT Toscana.

Wine Tasting

Here you will taste a white wine, (Sauvignon blanc, Sauvignon Gris, e Semillion), a red wine (100% sangiovese) and a sweet wine made with the noble rot from 2005!

The Castle

Then we will continue our beautiful journey up to 400 m above sea level to reach an eleventh century castle and since all the castles are in a dominant position, from the terrace we will have a 360 degree breathtaking view all over Tuscany countryside.
The Castle is surrounded by 200 hectares of vineyards and olive groves and by the medieval village that developed on its margins, including a small church from 14th century.
It is a family owned Castle so that often you will have the chance to meet the beautiful young owner that will introduce you to her charming winery.

Extra Vergin olive Olive Oil

Almost all the 200 hectares are dedicated to the production of wine and extra virgin olive oil, their aim is to preserve the heritage of the area with particular care to the indigenous vines such as Sangiovese, Colorino, Canaiolo, Trebbiano and Malvasia grapes.

Wine tasting

Here you will taste 4 wines, a white wine (80% Malvasia and Trebbiano +20% Chardonnay) a Chianti red wine, (100% Sangiovese ) a super tuscan wine (70% Sangiovese +30% Merlot) and a sweet wine from 2009

Last Winery

The last winery is one of the most beautiful and largest eighteenth-century villas in central Italy.
The first document attesting the existence of a settlement of the Villa dates back to 1066 B.C . In the medieval time it was destroyed, with the exception of the XII century tower, The Villa was then rebuilt between the XII and XVII century.
Over the years the Villa had several owners, until 1935 when it was bought by the Rossi Counts of Montelera, already famous for the Martini brand.
during World War II, a lot of paintings by Michelangelo and Donatello were protected in the cellars of the winery, including the statues from the Medici Chapels and the Duomo of Florence, this was one of the main reason that saved the Villa from bombing.
Inside the Villa there were also a lot of wind mills to grind the grains cultivated in the property.
After World War II, the Rossi family began to restore the villa and the surrounding land, while the new generation started the wine-growing project producing now excellent and renowned wines.
Here you will taste 3 red wines , 1 Chianti (90% Sangiovese – 10% Colorino )
and 2 Super Tuscans (one 100% Merlot and the second 100% Sangiovese)

Max. 8 people

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.
