This is my basic wine tasting in Tuscany tour and it’s ideal for those who would prefer  to spend a little less. Its also a great choice if you only have a casual interest in wine, but would still like to enjoy the countryside of Tuscany. For four or more participants, the price point is similar to that for group tours. But why do a group tour when you can have the luxury of a vehicle and guide all to yourselves? We visit two family wineries where we enjoy sit down tastings, and a guided tour of one of them. The rest of the day focuses on the gorgeous Tuscan countryside with multiple stops for your holiday photos. Last but not least, all will be done at a leisurely pace.

The countryside of Tuscany and Chianti is one of the world’s most beautiful rural areas. Wherever you cast your eyes, vineyards, olive orchards and Cyprus trees are blended into the surrounding woodland with outstanding aesthetic taste. I’ll explain the countryside from an agricultural and historic point of view, and give you insights on the culture and wine of the region. We’ll make numerous stops for snapshots, (the photos on the right are from this tour), and of course taste highly rated Chianti and Super Tuscan wines. We’ll visit two wineries; a small traditional winery, and a modern corporate estate.

09.15am – We depart directly from our hotel and head for the gorgeous Chianti landscapes , where a photographic feast awaits us. The whole morning will be dedicated to a leisurely drive enjoying the scenery. I know all the best locations, and we’ll make numerous stops for photos.

A two course Tuscan light lunch is included at one of my favorite restaurants, and will comprise of a platter of cold cuts and bruschetta with seasonal toppings, followed by a pasta dish. A glass of house wine is also included.

After lunch we head for our afternoon of wine tasting in Tuscany. Both wineries are family run. The first is a larger estate, with technical and sales staff. Here we’ll taste various vintages of Chianti plus a Super Tuscan. The tasting is sit down in a relaxed and amiable atmosphere. The second winery is very much a micro winery, in fact it’s one of the smallest in the area and it’s run by a husband and wife team. Again it’s a sit down tasting and you’ll enjoy individual attention, trying Chianti, and Super Tuscan wines.

Our day comes to an end after the second wine tasting and we head back to your accommodation, arriving at about 04.15pm.

Tour duration: approx seven hours door to door.

I often get asked for advice on accommodation. As I’m not a travel agency and I have little to do with hotels and B&B’s, I suggest you look up the Chianti Travel Guide where there is lots of very usefull info
