Chianti is the first name that comes to mind when talking of wine in Tuscany. Situated between Florence and Siena, the Chianti region offers a rare and breathtaking example of how it's possible to cultivate land in complete harmony with nature. Wherever you cast your eyes there are vineyards, olive orchards and cypress trees blended into the surrounding woodland with the same aesthetic sense of a renaissance painting. Amongst it, you will discover one of the most extraordinary wines in this area.
We’ll travel through the beautiful Chianti countryside to reach Greve, now considered the “Capital” of Chianti, where the central square is located. Here you can relax with a typical small shops and boutiques. The tour, along small country roads, continues to Montefioralle, an ancient castle-village perched on a hill. And later, the mighty Badia a Passignano, founded in 1049 by Benedictine monks. This is also a perfect place for a guided tour of cellars and taste wine with typical menu of Tuscan cooking.
