Afternoon Excursion to Chianti with Wine Tasting & Dinner

Enjoy wine tasting in a castle, visit fragrant vineyards in the provinces of Florence and Siena, explore the medieval villages of Greve and Castellina and end the day with a traditional Tuscan dinner.

Enjoy the charm of the Chianti countryside, one of the most suggestive areas of Tuscany which is renowned world-wide not only for its famous wine, but also for its landscape.

Enjoy spectacular views of vineyards, olive trees and cypresses surrounding churches, parishes, castles and villages hidden among the hills.

In the heart of Chianti, the tour reaches first a picturesque cozy Winery, where you will taste the best wines produced, accompanied by local snacks. Next, continue to the medieval village of Greve. Here you can admire the famous main square flanked by arcades and stroll by the shops selling articles and typical products of the Chianti area.

A wonderful hilly route along the "Via Chiantigiana" leads us then to a family-run Winery where you willl visit the cellars and enjoy tasting four excellent limited-production Chianti wines and local products.

Then visit Castellina in Chianti, a characteristic, ancient village on a hill, nestled between stretches of vineyards and olive groves.

In the evening, the final topp will be at San Donato in Poggio, an ancient fortified castle town dating back to the XI century. In the enchanted atmosphere of this charming village, you will be served a traditional dinner with a full menu of fresh local produce and excellent Chianti wine.
