Florence Wine Tour – The Best That Tuscany Has To Offer
Take a Florence Wine Tour and explore the best that Tuscany has to offer surrounded by the rolling hills and vast vineyards of Chianti!
Everyone goes to the same museums and churches on their Florence vacations, losing half their vacation waiting in lines! Instead, ditch the usual tourist haunts and join Florence Wine Tour for a chance to escape the crowds and do something different!
Join us for a relaxing and fun day in the Tuscan countryside drinking wine, taking in the views and visiting the cellar of a local, family-run winery.
You will be transported in a comfortable, air-conditioned van (not a gigantic tourist bus!) so you are sure to be in a smaller group.

Family Owned Winery
The winery from which we run the tour was built in the 12th century and is owned by a local Florentine family.
Today, we are fortunate enough that the current owners open up their doors and allow us to tour their home. Francesco and his family make everyone feel at home once they welcome you into their sprawling property, which includes over 350 hectares of vineyards and olive trees. This fairytale winery will not disappoint!
No wine tasting is complete without food!
After the tasting, you will be treated to a generous traditional Tuscan lunch at the castle. Lunch includes a selection of Tuscan ham, salami and cheese, salad, and pasta, dessert and coffee.
You will also be invited to try the castle’s homemade olive oil and honey or jam. And of course, no Italian lunch is complete without wine! Although the tasting portion of the day will have been complete, you are welcome to enjoy more wine with lunch.
