We loved the little towns we visited. The owner of the winery was very generous and hospitable. We could see his passion in his work. He was casual, and this created a fun, relaxing environment. To us the prices of the wine and shipping was very reasonable. I believe one of the main highlights for us was the driver Andrea. We enjoyed his stories and his charisma. Totally would recommend him!
We start from the pick up point at 02:15 pm and then drive for 45 minutes to reach the first winery on the tour.
The first winery you’ll visit at 03:00 pm is known for its high-quality Chianti wines. Many locals buy their wines from this estate because of its simple, organic ingredients and delicious flavors. You will have the opportunity to sample some of their best wines while enjoying a breathtaking view of the Tuscan countryside. Tuscan wines are not only of excellent quality, but the experience of visiting the cellars, vineyards, and production facilities is an education in and of itself. You will learn how to tell the quality of a wine, as well as secrets for choosing the right wine to enhance your meal. In addition to enjoying a variety of local meats, cheeses, and bread, you will also have the opportunity to taste extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and other Tuscan specialties.
At 05:00 pm, we’ll begin our visit to San Gimignano, a beautiful walled city. San Gimignano is a town that is oozing with history and charm. It’s well-known for its delicious ice cream and impressive stone towers. These towers were built during medieval times and served as a form of defense. Of the 72 towers that once stood, 14 remain today – a testament to their strength and durability. In 1990, the town’s center was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site.
It will take us 50 minutes to drive to Greve in Chianti. We will begin our tour of the city at 6:40 pm. Visitors to Greve can’t help but feel transported to another time as they explore the picturesque square and learn about its fascinating history. It’s hard to believe that this space has been a central part of the town for centuries, and it’s even more amazing to think about all the people who have passed through it over the years. With its miles of Chianti Classico vineyards and renowned butchers, Greve offers a feast for the senses. Every turn in the road reveals a new breathtaking vista, making it the perfect place to snap some photos.

Fabio was a fantastic guide with lots of knowledge. A great tour for people who want to see Tuscany. Beautiful towns, incredible countryside and ended with a brilliant wine tasting. Highly recommend!
This was a wonderful tour, a lot more than we expected. Our driver Daniel was very knowledgeable of sights, history, and wines that went with certain foods. His recommendation if it was on our to do list was Chianti Classico with a steak ❤️❤️ We highly recommend this tour and Daniel.
This is a must do if you want to see a bit of Tuscany when visiting Florence. The perfect amount of exploration and driving for a day in the countryside. The three city visit ended with a great wine tasting.
We could not have enjoyed our day more! Our driver was knowledgeable and friendly. The three stops were perfect, broke up the ride so we never felt we were in the car too long. We were lucky to be joined by a nice couple as well. The winery was lovely. It was a beautiful day!
