Get to know the area of the great wines, get to know Tuscany, join the perfect experience for wine lovers.. the “Tuscany Wine and Olive Oil Trail”! From April, available 2 DEPARTURES per day: at 9:30AM or at 3PM, choose your preferred time.
Carefully designed to offer an all-round immersive Chianti wine experience our signature Tuscany Wine and Olive Oil Trail Tour leads you down country roads and vineyards, through the cellars and straight under the labels and into the bottles of one of the world's most exceptional wines: Chianti!
Enjoy the exclusive privileges of exploring Chianti and Chianti Classico in a small group, aboard a minivan, with the expert guidance of a sommelier throughout your tour. Renowned worldwide for its precious ruby-red blends the Chianti hillside is unique: a sea of softly rolling hills dotted by swaying cypresses, olive groves and golden farmhouses and a myriad of extensive vineyards. This is the land of the black rooster - il Gallo Nero - which you can see defiantly looking out of all the signs along the countryside roads and labels, the land where back in 1872 the ideal percentage of different grapes (Sangiovese, Canaiolo and others) used to make the area's namesake wine was discovered.
Explore the marvelous realm of wine in its very kingdom, learn about the history, the peculiar characteristics, the different tastes and aromas. Your tour includes visiting two wineries and an ancient olive oil mill. The mill boasts ancient architectural features and modern technology, and produces delicious gourmet olive oil. Enjoy learning about the centuries-old olive oil tradition, the harvesting and pressing process, and finally savor the unique, full, flavor of the estate oil. Led by your sommelier you will visit two very different wineries. Experience the thrill of exploring the cellars lined with precious blends (both wineries are internationally renowned and acclaimed), learning about wine production in general and about the two different approaches and techniques, and savoring the very best of the estate blends of course!
At the end of the tour savor a typical Tuscan lunch or dinner.

Great Wine Tasting Experience
Our small group of 6 met in a central location in the city and the tour started with scenic drive through the hills of Tuscany. Each stop at a winery offered great wine, knowledge and information about the wine, and fantastic scenery all around. The lunch provided was just the right amount to go with the wine. Would recommend!

Wonderful day! The guides were well informed, friendly and kept us moving. I would do this again, the food was as good as the wine.
Fun, educational wine tour with Matteo
We went on a semi private tour there was a total of 7 of us, five people in my group and we had one additional couple we had so much fun. It flew by so fast Mateo was so informative, fun, pleasing to be around and very nice on the eyes. He was an excellent driver I normally get carsick and I did not have any problems even after drinking all the wine.
Great tour through the Tuscan hills near Florence with great wine and information about the Chianti region and olive oil production. Paula was a great host.
