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. Your meal will be prepared by the winery owner’s wife 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. Tasting them together with your meal will be a joy for your taste buds. I’m sure this will be one of the best meals of your Italian holiday.

Choose between enjoying your meal at the table with other visitors (you will of course have a personal table), or wander off into the olive orchard with a basket for a private picnic. We also visit a somewhat larger winery (the one from my wine lover’s tour) for a second tasting of Chianti and Super Tuscan wines.

Family wineries in Tuscany can also mean excellent home cooking

09.15am: 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 well away from main roads through the heart of the Chianti hills, where vineyards, olive orchards and woodland provide one of the most iconic regions of the world.

About mid day we arrive at one the smallest family wineries in Tuscany where we’ll have a guided tour of the estate, and enjoy the personal feel only a family winery can give. We then proceed to taste their highly rated Chianti & Super Tuscan wines, while sitting down to a delightful lunch either at the table or as a picnic.  I recommend you have a light breakfast and forget your diet. Last but not least, the surroundings are gorgeous and everything you expect from Tuscany.

We continue our Family Wineries in Tuscany Tour with a second drive through the Tuscan countryside, again making stops to contemplate the scenery and take a photo or two. We reach our second winery of the day where we’ll taste a different style of Chianti, sometimes defined as “International.” This means a greater use of barrel ageing and Merlot and Cabernet grape varieties. Which is best? Only you can decide, it’s purely a question of individual taste. Chianti has changed greatly over the last thirty years, smoother and more refined it regularly obtains high scores from international reviewers, while maintaining its dry character for excellent pairing with hearty food.

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

Our 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. 04.15pm: Drop off at your hotel.

Duration: approx seven hours door to door.
