We would have loved to have done the longer day but just didn't have the time. This half-day Chianti wine tour was the perfect solution and gave us a feel for the Tuscan countryside for the right amount of time and money we had to spend. The driver and winery staff were so friendly and fun! - C. Daws

Your half-day private tour discovering the beautiful Tuscan countryside and the Chianti wine region begins when your friendly English-speaking driver with a private luxury vehicle collects you at your accommodations in Florence or Siena's city center.
You will then proceed into the nearby Tuscan countryside where you will come stop to tour a beautiful Chianti Classico winery tucked between cypress-lined streets. You'll meet with your English-speaking qualified Chianti winery guide or the winery owner and have a tour of the property in English, including the aging rooms and underground cantina.
This is where much of the magic happen, when the delicious red Chianti wine is made each September following the yearly grape harvest. Learn about Chianti wine-making techniques and the history of this world-renowned red wine region before tasting the Chianti wines famously produced locally.
After your winery tour, you'll have time to visit a nearby charming Chianti village featuring small streets brimming with gourmet food and wine shops, and a sunny town square. Once your visit has concluded, you'll head back to your accommodations in either Florence or Siena.
