If you’d like to try a typical Tuscan home cooked meal, this is the tour for you. While tasting the wines of one of the smallest family wineries in Tuscany, we’ll sample genuine Tuscan home cooking. Above all this is the last estate in Chianti that raises animals and grows vegetables. This will be one of the freshest farm to table meals you’ve ever had. Your lunch will be prepared by the lady of the house, who isn’t a chef, “just” a great cook in the traditional housewife sense. As an added bonus they produce excellent Chianti and Super Tuscan wines. I’m sure this will be one of the best meals of your Italian holiday.

We also visit a second and somewhat larger winery (the one from my wine lover’s tour) for a second tasting of Chianti and Super Tuscan wines.

09.00am: Our Tuscany tour starts as we leave your accommodation for the gorgeous countryside. The drive is leisurely and we’ll make a number of stops for photos. I’ve carefully chosen one of my favorite itineraries, in order to give you the best scenery Chianti has to offer. We travel off the beaten path through the heart of the Chianti hills, where vineyards, olive orchards and woodland provide one of the most iconic regions of the world.

Around 11:00am we arrive at the first winery which is a family business of medium size. Here you’ll meet the amiable staff, and enjoy a tour of the cellars followed by a sit down tasting at your own private table. We’ll be tasting traditional Chianti wines made from the Sangiovese grape, as well as Super Tuscans based on Merlot and Cabernet. Chianti has changed greatly over the last thirty years, smoother and more refined it regularly obtains high scores from international reviewers, while maintaining its acidic character for excellent pairing with hearty food.

We leave our first winery around 12:30, and take another drive through the gorgeous Tuscan countryside arriving at our lunch venue at 01:00.

This is one of the smallest wineries in the Chianti region where time has stood still. It was common until the 1950s for estates to farm 360°, growing vegetables, fruit and raising animals. This is no longer done, with the exception of this delightful little place.

We sit down to the freshest meal you’ve ever had. Everything is produced on the estate, and it’s home cooking…even the bread and pasta are home made.  I suggest you have a light breakfast and forget your diet. Last but not least, the surroundings are gorgeous and everything you expect from Tuscany.

After lunch we’ll visit the tiny town of Greve in Chianti. Here it’s nice to walk the arched sidewalks, browsing the shops which specialize in inexpensive souvenirs. For those who like cold cuts, the Falorni butcher’s shop is a must.

Our Farm to table Family wineries in Tuscany tour ends here, and we set off on a relaxed return journey where you can sleep off the pleasures of the day. Drop off at your accommodation will be around 04:15pm.

Duration: approx seven hours door to door.
